Uppingham School:
Studies, boundary wall
and gateway
GV
II


Eight studies, now stores, boundary wall and gateway. Wall and gateway probably C17
origin, studies 1786 and later. Studies have brick front and sides, coursed ironstone
rubble rear. Monopitch Collyweston stone slate roof. Tall octagonal moulded stone
stack at angle of L-plan. Each study of one room with boarded door and single light
window with leaded panes, beneath timber lintels. Early C19 hood-moulds above doors.
Studies originally heated by system of hot water pipes with central boiler in angle of
range. First studies built 1786, and range gradually expanded until it formed 2 sides
of a quadrangle. Sixteen studies were demolished c.1960, but the rear wall of those
to the east survives, as boundary wall to the school. Patchy stonework suggests that
it has an early origin. Gateway at south end has three-centred-arched head within
square surround, and is brick-faced to west.
