Hawber Cote: a pointer to pastoral pleasures but is it a suitable site for a school?In my following post I refer to the forthcoming merger of the Aire View and Hothfield Street schools and the proposal to move the new primary school to purpose-built premises at Hawber Cote. It could be seen as a delightful rural setting for a school but access looks to be nigh impossible without major disturbances. Bradford council's favoured site is the fenced field bordering the bungalows in Hawber Cote Lane in my photograph above, taken from Hawber Lane, which is the route from Drabble House Farm to Swartha.
Above: the present farm (not public) access to the proposed site for the new primary school is through the gate at the top of Hawber Cote Lane.
Above: the road to and from Hawber Cote Lane is via Banklands Lane opposite the park. The junction is formed by Wayside Mews on the left, a new development, and Hawber Cote Lane on the right.
