Abstract:
The Wellesley School Blyth. Archaeological Recording October 2005 On Links Road at the south end of the town of Blyth, the Wellesley School, dedicated to training destitute boys for a seafaring life, took over a World War I submarine base in 1920; it later became an Approved School. It was requisitioned again for naval use in World War II, and in 1973 became a Controlled Community Home. The recording was commissioned in advance of plans for redevelopment. Many of the original buildings of the submarine base, erected hurriedly c1915, were cleared away in the 1960s but three ranges of the administrative complex and three detached blocks, one covered into a chapel, remain. These are all simple single-storey brick buildings based on girder trusses on a 10ft (3.1 m) spacing. The chapel had been given a tower capped by an open timber belfry, and an internal ecclesiastical veneer provided by panelling and shaped window heads, with paintings of St Aidan and Grace Darling as part of the reredos. A block plan of the extant buildings and features was prepared, with detailed plans of the chapel and the best-preserved range of the Administrative complex, and a photographic record was made of the site. A carved figurehead of Admiral Boscawen, the base of a training mast and a War Memorial were also recorded. A series of useful plans detail the layout of the site from World War I onwards.
