22/151 Village Hall
Village hall formerly schoolhouse. Mid C19 extended in later C19. Stone rubble
walls. Gable ended slate roof. Brick stack at right gable end of each range.
Plan: Long narrow plan only one room deep. The original path is to the left and
apparently consisted of 2 schoolrooms each with a separate entrance. Another long
room was added at the right-hand end later in the C19.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front to original range to the left
retaining its tall 2-light stone mullion and transom windows with hoodmoulds above.
2 identical porches - one towards each end - with stone Tudor style arched doorways
which also have hoodmoulds. Stone coped gable above, terminating in small finial on
left-hand porch. In the gable of each is a stone plaque inscribed "C" - possibly
representing the Clinton estate. Behind the porches are C20 blockwood doors. The
addition at the right-hand end is lower with 3 windows similar to the other part and
plank doors to left and right of centre.
Interior: not inspected.
