Sunderland, Bede College, gymnasium
The Bede Collegiate Schools were opened here in 1929 in a symmetrical arrangement of buildings. The gymnasium dates from the 1930s and its design and appearance are typical of school buildings of its period. The gym was a single storey block on the north-west side of the main buildings. The building was made of brick with large ribbed ferroconcrete panels in the east and west walls. The gym block contained two similar sports halls aligned north-south. The building was recorded by ASUD in 2012 ahead of demolition.
