    Former Hugh Myddelton School, Sans Walk

    Now converted as a mixed use development during early 2000’s to high end private apartments and unique office spaces, the former Hugh Myddelton School comprises an important group of late Victorian board school buildings: a main 'triple decker' block on a large scale and packaged with resplendent with buff terracotta facing.

    The original school was ceremonially opened on 13th December 1893 by the Prince of Wales. This was the first time that the School Board for London had been accorded the distinction of a royal opening for one of its establishments, an honour commensurate with the school's status as the biggest and most expensive yet built by the board, but also intended, no doubt, as an act of public exorcism of the site, formerly occupied by a state prison known as “House of Detention”. This was and still is one of the finest architectural masterpieces within Clerkenwell.

    We have been solely instructed to market for lease the most impressive segment of the estate being the old gymnasium that is situated right on the top of the property. Once entering the secure portered gates into the old playground of the former school, the grand main building stands proudly before you. Accessed via a passenger lift and central staircase drawing you into the heart of the room, you can’t help but be impressed by feeling you get with the sense of space and volume that the room holds. Completely open plan and column free is how the Victorian’s wanted it, where today the same is said for what occupiers of any creed strive for in an uninterrupted working environment. The original yellow London Stock brickwork and cast iron beams are on full show to celebrate its architectural history, together with the most amazing natural daylight that is borrowed from multiple window panes.

    For those seeking an office that looks and feels nothing like an office, then you most certainly will enjoy this magnificent property.
