Feltham and Mayford Industrial Schools: Auxiliary Home, Lowestoft, Suffolk
On June 21st, 1902, an Auxiliary Home for the Feltham and >Mayford Industrial Schools was certified for use at Lowestoft. The building, erected "on a plot facing the Battery Green", was described as "handsome and commodious" and was fitted with electric lighting. It could accommodate 50 boys. The property was presumably used as a seaside holiday home.
Use of the establishment appears to have ceased in around 1908.
