History

Built as a National School in 1816 (date on building) and shown on the 1829 town plan. The school was superseded by a Board school in the 1870s. The building originally had 2 schoolrooms with end entrances and 4 windows between them. Owned by the Baron Hill estate, it was converted to a laundry after closure, but by 1889 was 2 dwellings. Replacement windows were re-set at a lower level than the original windows and internal partitions were created. It was sold by the Baron Hill estate in 1921.

Interior

Not inspected.
