View taken from ball court (MUGA), currently in a state of disrepair, bordering the east end of the site. The view shows 9 storey student accommodation on Blackburn Road in the distance.
View taken from the south looking north along West End Lane showing the existing site building incongruous with its surroundings.
A former railway sidings, the site borders a live railway line three metres below. The boundary is a 1.9m high concrete wall, which needs to be maintained.
The existing Potteries Path looking north (site boundary to the left) is long and high-walled with little or no overlooking across its length.
