School and integral school master's house, now a private house. Built in 1856.
Local slate rubble. Slurried scantle slate roof with gabled ends. Slate rubble
axial stack at the juction of the 2 ranges.
Plan: The school room is the main range to the right, probably originally a hall
open to the roof. The school master's house is the short cross-wing at the left-hand
end; it has a porch at the front in the angle with the main range to the right.
There is an axial stack at the junction of the 2 ranges.
In circa late C20 the building was converted into a private house and a floor was
inserted into the open hall of the schoolroom.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:3 window front. The main schoolroom range to
the right has 3 tall window openings each with a ground and first floor late C20
casement with glazing bars. The gabled projecting cross-wing to the left is the
former school master's house with 2-light casement with glazing bars in the original
segmental arched openings on the ground and first floor of the gable end. In the
angle to the right a projecting single storey stone rubble gable porch with a pointed
arch doorway and a grouted scantle slate roof.
Over the ridge at the centre of the main range there is a wooden bellcot, square on
plan, with wooden louvered sides and a tiled pyramidal roof.
The rear elevation was not inspected.
