10/37 The Old School

- II

House and former schoolroom. Late C15 house with internal remodelling
of the C17, minor alterations of the C18, extended in the early C19,
restored circa 1980. Attached mid-C19 schoolroom. Timber framed house,
large almost square panels with curved braces and brick infill, red
brick schoolroom; plain tile roofs; brick integral end stacks. The
house is T-shaped; single-bay former open hall aligned east-west facing
north, now lobby-entry plan, and fully floored, single-bay parlour
wing aligned north-south. A C19 kitchen wing extends from the south
side of the hall range. The schoolroom is attached to the west end
of the hall range and is on the same alignement. House to the left,
schoolroom to the right. House: 2 storeys; gabled crosswing to the
left, hall range to the right; 1:1 windows, C18 leaded glazing bar
casements; C20 door to the right. Queen strut roof truss with one
pair of trenched purlins. Schoolroom: one storey; 5-bay timber arcade
on short brick wall to the left, blind gabled wing to the right. South
elevation: house to the right, schoolroom to the left. House: 2 storeys;
hall range to the left, crosswing to the right, C19 gabled kitchen
wing to the right-hand side of the hall range; leaded glazing bar casements
to hall range and kitchen wing, the crosswing has 2 C20 casements to
the ground floor and one to the first floor. Schoolroom: one storey
with eaves band; pilaster buttresses to each end and to left of centre,
to the right of the latter are 3 French casements with segmental heads
and cast iron glazing bars, to the left is a casement of similar type.
Interior: the hall range has an inserted spine-beam and joists with
ogee stopped chamfers; the west end of the spine beam is supported
by the bressumer of a large open fireplace. The crosswing has a cross-
beam with wide chamfer, to the north the joists are stopped and chamfered,
to the south they are simply chamfered. This may indicate that the
ground floor of the crosswing was originally partitioned along the
line of the cross beam. The pattern of the joists indicates that before
the remodelling of the open hall, the staircase was in the north-east
corner of the wing.
