Howard’s new book tells the story of the teacher training establishment, founded and operated by the Loreto Sisters, on Nicker Hill in Keyworth (now the site of the British Geological Society). Built in 1968 and opened by Princess Anne in June 1970 it was closed in 1977 due to changes in Government education policy.
The restoration of the Memorial Gates to the Rectory Field at Keyworth was made possible by a donation from the Sisters of Loreto to commemorate their stay in Keyworth between 1968 and 1977.
The book is available from Keyworth Local History Society for £7.00 plus £2.50 package and postage; the best way to get a copy is to access the society website
