I walked the square some two years ago, it is now an open space of green
grass except for St.Paul's Swedenborg Church, surrounded by new flats.
Trying to recall the walk, I seem to have entered the square from the North
side and being confronted by a building that may have been the school, seem
to recollect what was possibly a school playground, walking around this
building the Church was behind it to the South.
I hope someone living in the area now will give you a better idea.
