This is the old Hallgate junior school in Cottingham. It was built in the 1890s and was used up until a few years ago when it was merged with the infants school next door. It then stood empty for a while. Community groups wanted it to be made available for community uses such as a Scout Hall and so on. The Council, however, sold it to an arm of the Exclusive Brethren, a Christian group that encourages members to avoid contact with any outsiders wherever possible, even other Christians.
