8/70 School House


House. Probably 1830. Part of the estate village for Sir William Amcotts
Ingilby. Coursed squared gritstone, grey slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays,
the central bay breaking forward slightly and containing a deeply recessed
3-panel door with interlaced glazing bars to pointed overlight in a moulded
surround with crocketted ogee door-head. Flat-headed chamfered mullioned
windows of two 4-centred arched lights containing 8-pane casements;
hoodmoulds over. Pilaster strips to each corner. Moulded eaves cornice and
low blocking course. Hipped roof with corniced stacks flanking ridge.
Similar in style to Church View, Market Place (qv) and Town Hall Cottages,
this house has more architectural features, such as pilaster strips and the
crocketted door-head, which link it with the Castle and the Church and
reflect the prestige of the schoolmaster within the village community.
