HOLCOME ROGUS FORE STREET, Holcombe Rogus ST 01 NE 5/109 - Holcombe Rogus School GV II School, formerly Webbers Charity School. Dated 1849, 1950 and 1962 extensions. Grey-coloured local chert rubble laid to rough courses; Bathstone detail; slate roof. Plan: school. The main block is set back on a terrace above the street and faces south. There are 2 main classrooms the right (east) one larger than the left and there is an entrance between. A 1-room plan crosswing projects forward at right angles from the right (east) end and only overlaps the main block on the front corner. These are single storey blocks and there are C20 blocks to rear and to west. The original school is built in a restrained Tudor style. Exterior: the main block has a 3-window front of large 3-light stone mullion-and- transom windows and there are similar in each gable end wall. There is a doorway left of centre on the front; a 2-centred arch containing a plank door. This block is gable-ended with shaped kneelers and coping. The left (west) gable is surmounted by an ashlar gabled bellcote which was restored to working order in 1982. The front gable end of the crosswing has diagonal buttresses, a 3-light stone-mullioned window, above which is a carved stone scroll proud of the wall face, and inscribed Holcombe Rogus Charity School, 1849. This gable too has-shaped kneelers and coping. Interior: was not inspected but it seems that the original C19 structure survives as superficially modernised in the C20. This school, endowed-by a Mrs Webber of Bampton in 1823, is an important group component in the centre of the village. Source: Andrew Gabriel and Barbara Fletcher.
