Fight to save old rail building from Muslim school scheme

HERITAGE experts have hit out at plans to demolish a former railway research building in Derby so the city's first Muslim school can be extended.

The Al-Madinah Trust has applied to Derby City Council for the primary section of its school to be created in part of the RTC Business Park on London Road.

The school, which opened last September in temporary accommodation in Norman House, Heritage Gate, would occupy the refurbished and remodelled Faraday building on the site.

Hartley House, built in 1935, which adjoins the Faraday building, would be demolished and an extension put up in its place.
