Subscribers T Burgess I Beer I Passmore Deason School was erected in the same year as the original National School in the parish as a result of a disagreement between the local non-conformist and Church of England congregations. It was used on Sundays by the Bible Christians, but it is not known when it ceased to be a school. It was subsequently used as a shed for thatchers, as a cobbler's shop or, as now, as an outhouse.
