If it had not been for the public outcry this building which had become derelict would have been demolished as part of the Milleniumn Village redevelopment. It was refurbished at a cost of approx £750,000 to its present standard.

It is now a thriving part of our community, the Parish Council, childcare facility, brownies, weight watchers, martial arts and Brighshaw High School all have facilities based here.

Allerton Bywater School was opened in 1898
