Saints Peter and Paul High School in Widnes was demolished in order to sell the land to a real estate developer who subsequently built a private housing estate of 3, 4 and 5 bedroomed houses.

The school was originally constructed in 1952 with the local community paying a small contribution from their wage packets each week to buy the bricks. It was to be knocked down to make way for a real estate developer, an invasive construction of large private houses that quickly became a contentious issue.
