(west side)
2/25 School and School House
Former school and school house, unoccupied at time of survey
(November 1985). Built 1768 with endowment from John Yate,
recontructed 1852. Brick for school and rendered brick for school
house, concrete tile roof with gable end right to school, hipped to
house, brick stacks including large lateral stack to house on left
hand return. Single-storey school block across site with
projecting gabled rear wing to right, gabled porch right of centre,
and late C20 rear extension not of special interest. Two-storey
house forms projecting cross wing to left. School has 3 windows,
3-light wood casements with mid-level transom, under segmental
heads, porch between windows 2 and 3 with pointed arch plank door,
two small side slits and flanking buttresses. Window in gable at
back and opposite window one, as front elevation. Small lead-
covered diagonally-set bell turret on ridge of main roof behind
porch. Stone panel set high between first two windows records
endowment by Yate in 1768; below this a newer panel commemorating
bicentenary in 1968; over porch door a note of rebuilding at cost
of £355. 1. 6d in 1852, below a triangular panel with trefoil,
inscribed "Yates Charity". The brickwork (four courses making
approximately 275mm) would appear to be original, rather than
reconstructed in 1852. School house has late C20 replacement
casements, 2-light over 3-light, with rendered 2-brick course
string between, and plank door to right under thin hood on lattice
wood supports, with second plank door recessed in angle. This is
modest architecturally, but complete and a significant historical
survival in an area cut off from main routes in the county.
