5/108 The Old Sunday School (formerly listed as Sunday 22.2.55 School attached to Vicarage)


Former Sunday school. Circa late 1830s, probably erected by the Reverend E.E.

Coleridge, a nephew of Samuel Taylor Coleridge whitewashed and rendered, probably stone; slate roof, gabled at ends.

Plan: Adjoining the stable block to the rear of the Old Rectory. One room on plan with a porch on the north-east side. The stable block, adjoining at the left has been partly converted to a garage.

Exterior: Single storey. The gabled porch has splat bargeboards to the gable and, on the right return an arched doorframe with a two-centred arched door; the front of the porch has two-centred arched door; the front of the porch has a 2-light traceried arched window with a hoodmould. The window is probably medieval and may have been removed from the church when the vestry was added. The rear wall has an two-centred arched C19 door with ornamental strap hinges. The right return has 2 arched ground floor windows with metal frames and diamond glazing bars. 2 first floor lancets with chamfered stone frames, the stonework may be medieval, and a hoodmould.

Interior: Barrel ceiling with moulded ribs. An unusual example of an intact antiquarian Gothick Sunday school: group value with the church and the old Rectory.
