6/178 The School -

- II

School now house. 1871-2. John Douglas. Flemish bond brick with stone and terracotta dressings and a clay tile roof. The schoolroom itself was formerly open to the roof but has been floored over in conversion to a house. There is a wing at the rear and a porch at the left. 3-bays with projecting chimneystack between bays 1 and 2 with decorative brick diagonally set clustered shafts. On either side are 7-light mullion windows in moulded terracotta. Dormer gable in bay 2 with 3-light mullion window and lozenge gable decoration. A C20 patio window has been inserted to bay 3 as well as the rear. Hipped porch with hipped bellcote above on gable of main roof. The interior (though largely altered) retains 2 pairs of truncated crucks which support the roof. Cruck spurs support the wallplate and a collar beam the purlins, in what is an unusual revival of an early form of construction.
