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.
