The latest incarnation of the WILSON MARRIAGE building – which is now the Colchester branch of the ACLEssex adult education scheme. Call in Tuesday 7th Sept 10.00-13.00; 17.00-20.00 for details click>


The building, once a school, survived an accidental fire whilst being renovated as a youth centre and youth training facility. It then further survived possible closure when the youth training scheme ceased, when it was saved by Grey Friars adult college adopting it as an annexe. Ironically, it then outlasted Grey Friars when Essex County Council closed the locally-managed college, selling the town-centre site. They have now centralised their adult learning service, managing it corporately, with branches in various towns. The Wilson Marriage site is Colchester’s local venue for the County-wide service.
