26/11/51 (Formerly listed as The Old
School House (The Old House),
School and school-house, now house. 1710 for Dr. Robert South, probably partly
rebuilt late C18/early C19. Random and coursed limestone rubble with some ashlar
dressings; Stonesfield-slate and artificial stone-slate roofs with rubble and
brick stacks. T plan. 2 storeys plus attic and one storey plus attic.
Symmetrical 3-window front of school-house has 3 tall renewed 2-light casements
at each floor below flat arches with projecting keyblocks; roof has 2 large
gabled C19 roof dormers. Gable walls have stacks, the rubble chimney projection
to left very large with stone-slated offsets. Lower rear wing, which returns to
right at the far end, has large segmental-arched windows and was formerly the
school rooms; it is probably C18 but a re-set plaque with a moulded border
commemorates the school's foundation in 1710. Small single-storey annexe
attached to right rear angle of house has a large projecting stone stack and was
probably a kitchen. Interior not inspected.
