    Default The Old School House - May 2016


    I visited this on a solo trip a few weeks back, never set off to see this but as drove past and saw it out the corner of my eye I pulled up. On further investigation I realised which school it was. It was a very pleasant building with plenty of features and lots of decay.

    history

    This is a parish school and established by 1808. By 1871 it was described as occupying a cottage that had been converted into a schoolhouse. In 1950 the school was closed.
