Parson Cross Library sits windowless on Margetson Crescent, after being damaged by vandals.
"Local libraries still thrive, despite budget cutbacks not allowing repairs to keep up with the repeated petty vandalism of some of the local youth. The windows are now protected by steel shutters." – Parson Cross in the Late 1980s: 100 Photographs of the Area Taken by Local People (published by Monteney Community Workshop).
