9/152 Former Sunday School

GV II

Former Anglican Sunday school, now used as part of Merriott First School (qv). 1834. Ham stone rubble; gables and dressings in ashlar; Welsh slate roof between stepped coped gables having cross finials, metal ventilators to ridge; later brick chimney stacks on west side. Single-storey, 5 bays. West elevation has hollow-chamfer mullioned windows, 2-light with segmental arched light heads and incised spandrils, set under square labels. To centre bay an elliptical-arched recess under square label, with pair of studded and boarded doors, up a flight of 5+1 stone steps with wrought-iron handrail. Above doorway a plaque inscribed "Redeem thy Creator in the days of thy youth - Ecc 12". Extension on north gable behind wing wall, which has plain doorway. South gable has a 4-light transomed window to latch, set high, with plaque over inscribed 'Merriott Sunday School 1834". East elevation matches west, except that centre bay has a taller window with transome, the head being set into a gable. Interior not seen, but apparently little altered. By 1861 this building used as a National Day School, then in 1875/6 became a mixed Board school, after the erection of the Infants Board school across the road: both schools were merged as Merriott First School in 1972 (VCH Somerset, Vol IV, 1978, p61).
