Between Mina Road, Old Kent Road, Shorn Road and Bagshot Street. The 1882 section appears to have been demolished and replaced by part of Walworth Academy in the post-war period. It may have been the school called Albany Road (with a photo) in the preface of the 1972 reprint of Robson's book. The 1904 building, facing Mina Road, survives and is an attractive example of the style of the SBL in its final year. It has an unusual and interesting inter-war extension to the S with Eric Gill style carvings.
