A Cantraybridge College information leaflet states:
"The courtyard building (Cantray Square) was acquired by Cantraybridge in January 1996. The North Wing is in need of renovation in order to be fully used. The North Wing is open-ended to the weather, the roof decaying and inside areas are damp and need to be renovated.
The college site had a previous life as Cantray Home Farm. Cantraybridge are keen to gain as much historical information as possible with a view to seeking funding to also create a display and interpretation area for visitors on
· The history of the area.
· People who lived and worked here in the past.
· Architectural history.
· Cantray Home Farm.
· Kirk Care Housing Association (no longer in existence).
· Cantraybridge College and its history, its students and its working practices.
With a grant Cantraybridge could
· Breathe new life into the North Wing and Clock Tower of Cantray Square, by repairing, adapting and giving both areas a productive new use.
· Provide opportunities for the community to access office space/hot desks.
· Provide a Highland Self Directed Support hub (info on next page).
· Create a microenterprise support hub for people with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental ill-health.
· Develop key student services."
There is more interesting information available on the leaflet. Gurnites can read a copy here.
The College also says: "We are keen to find out from the community if there is interest in and support for developing the North Wing and Clock Tower of Cantray Square. The North Wing is open-ended to the weather, the roof is decaying and inside areas are damp and need to be renovated. We would really appreciate you filling in this survey." The Survey is online here.
