News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I think it has always been a school, we had a neighbour who was caretaker there but have a feeling it was a junior school ?   I'm sure the Art College wasn't there. It was in the building that is now Rochester Library, had a friend who went there back in the 60s.

Pretty sure it was used by the Art college before moving to the new building opposite.

Grandarog posted a picture of the Roffen Club in Rochester in ‘Guess the Place’.  I can remember the building when it was used as an extension of Fort Pitt School for Girls in the 1960’s.  I suppose it must have been used as an ‘overflow’  It was quite a trek up and down to the main school especially in the winter.  I wonder what it was before it was used by the school.
