ECCLESTON C.P. EATON ROAD (West side) St Marys Church of England School II* GV

School, 1878, by John Douglas for 1st Duke of Westminster. 'T' shaped, Tudor style, in buttressed squared snecked red sandstone with red tile roof. Attached leg-to-leg to 'T' shaped former schoolmaster's house (q.v.). Octagonal steepled stone belfry turret. Stone-coped gables with shaped finials. Stone chimney with 2 attached octagonal flues. Louvred dormer ventilator in roof of school hall. Mullioned windows, some arched; individual lights to straight-headed windows are also arched; patterned leaded glazing. Niche in front gable carries crowned figure teaching a child, in stone. 2 entrance doorways with shaped boarded doors on ornate wrought iron hinges, in arched stone openings. A modern flat-roofed brick extension at back is not prominent. Interior: Not inspected. School and former schoolmaster's house make a distinguished picturesque group; the massing and detailing of each element (quite small in scale) impart a friendly, informal character unusual in Victorian schools. (See Pevsner and Hubbard).
