The BWI Archives
1967 ~ Southcote Rise
- Laying the Foundation Stone
the 16th September 1967 the Foundation Stone of the new BWI building
on Southcote Rise was laid. Only one extant picture has currently
come to light. However, Mr Tanner, who made a film of the building
of the new school,
included material from this day.
This can be viewed through links on the 1968 Southcote Rise page.
The picture below shows Fr. Byron, the Vicar, fixing and blessing the
and next to him Mr. Jennings, the Headteacher.
