15/211 Old School (behind
Nos.2-6 Bourne Road)


Former outbuilding of old Swinstead Hall, converted to a school
and now being converted to a house. c.1720, probably by Sir John
Vanbrugh, with conversions of c.1800 and 1985. Coursed limestone
rubble with ashlar dressings and quoins, yellow pantile roof with
single gable and massive ridge stone stacks. Single storey 5 bay
front with chamfered plinth, originally 3 bay. The 3 original
openings have semi-circular heads with keyed ashlar surrounds. To
either side of the central one are later openings with flat
ashlar lintels. Interior retains large ashlar fireplace with
central wide arch flanked by smaller narrower arched openings,
the right hand one housing a bread oven. The arches are
segmental with raised keystones and imposts. The other side of
the central stack has a large fireplace with flat ashlar lintel
and keyblock, ashlar piers and imposts. White's 1856 directory
describes the school as having been the kitchen of a large hall
taken down by the last Duke of Ancaster (d.1809).
