This building is disused and shortly to be demolished. Originally built in 1870 as Lostock Industrial School, it passed under the control of the local education authority in 1925. This open air school had facilities including an indoor swimming pool and dormitories for up to 100 pupils. In 1986 it changed to teaching children with special needs, and closed in 1995.
