GV II

School, now 2 house. Later C19. Hitch's patent bricks of a buff colour, with low pitched slate roof. Stock brick shallow rear extension with slate roof. Symmetrical 2-storeys 3 windows range facing N with tall central chimney of 4 separate circular shafts with necking and cap in Hitch bricks. Single-storey schoolroom and porch on W end with slate roofs, also in Hitch bricks. Unfortunate new casement windows. Caleb Hitch of Ware patented his bricks in 1828, roughly 12" x 6" x 6" having a system of interlocking to economise in mortar and give structural strength. Their use is confined to the Ware district. This building is the best surviving example of the varied uses of Hitch's bricks in this area. (Branch Johnson (1970) 20).
