II*

Original Merchant Taylors' Free Grammar School, now part of Merchant Taylors' Girls' School. Founded 1620, by John Harrison (citizen and merchant of London); altered, and now attached to modern buildings at rear. Large coursed squared sandstone blocks with some freestone dressings, stone slate roof. Cruciform plan formed by main range with projected 2-storey porch to front and projected stair-turret to rear. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, 3:1:3 windows, symmetrical; with a moulded plinth, string course over ground floor with a frieze of paterae, moulded eaves cornice, and coped gables with kneelers and apex finials. The porch has a round-headed doorway with moulded imposts and C20 panelled divided doors, at 1st floor a tall square-headed blocked opening (like a doorway), now rendered and containing a C20 sundial, and in each side a 2-light mullioned window at ground floor and a 6-light transomed window above. To each side there is a coupled pair of cross-windows at ground floor, a similar but shorter pair of cross-windows at 1st floor directly above these and a 6-light window between these and the porch. All these windows have chamfered mullions and transoms and double-chamfered surrounds. Much of the masonry at ground floor is covered by old incised graffiti (some C18 but mostly C19). Both gable walls have coupled cross-windows on both floors (the upper in the left gable now with wooden mullions and transoms). The rear has a stair-turret with a 6-light window on each floor, and a large extruded chimney stack to each bay (that to the 2nd bay now covered by early C20 extension). INTERIOR: not inspected.
