Old school building, Llanstephan Road. Between A40 & the railway, immediately E of bridge. SW angle of W gable.. Visible from road, 2m back, gate open. Used as council depot? Huddle of portacabins do nothing for the otherwise OK architecture. Pedestrian access across rly if you can't figure out how to drive to location!
