Former village school. 1860 for the Marchioness of Waterford. Snecked stone
with ashlar dressings. Roof has bands of Lakeland and Welsh slate roof. Tudor
style. Single storey, 6 bays. Outer bays have boarded doors in flat-topped

lights with 4-pane sashes in chamfered surrounds under floating cornices. The
2 centre bays have similar 4-light windows. Corbel table. Over bays 2 and 5

corbelled-out octagonal corniced chimneys at the apex. In each gable an oval

Waterford. Very high, steeply-pitched gabled roof with overlapping coping.

Interior: the main hall was decorated from 1861-83 by the Marchioness with a
series of paintings, done on paper and stuck to the wall, like murals, in the
Pre-Raphaelite style. On the north wall 9 panels with biblical scenes in
arched surrounds with texts; in the spandrels roundels with portrait heads;
the spaces between have foliage and naturalistic detail. The east wall has a
large "Jesus in the midst of the doctors", the west wall a large illustration
of the text "Suffer little children to come unto me".

All the figues used are portraits of village people and castle servants.
