King’s College Fire 1871

pg 33

…sept 22, 1871, the school building was destroyed by fire which broke out just after morning recess…within a few days the school was reopened in the manor house of "Martock", the property of Col. Edward K.S. Butler on the Chester Road.
…untill June 1873(at which point)…the school ceased functioning for the next two years.

pg 35

…Jan 1877…work (on the new school began)…Oct. 29th handed over the building to the board for occupation

pg 37 – 39 (Between 1892 – 1894)
…Among the improvements to the plants and buildings we find that the Board had the barn at the back of the building removed, a cricket pitch layed out, terraces built and the playing field drained, and an open-air skating rink built for winter use…
