The Old School North
of Church of St Peter
Old Girls School. Initials and date JG on gable. Slobbered rubble walls with
stone dressings; graduated greenslate roof with stone ridge. Single storey.
Gable to left. 3 2-light windows with trefoil heads to lights, hood moulds and
chamfered stops. The school was built as the first Girls School in Heversham at
the expense of James J. Gandy of Kendal. Work started to erect it and a school
house in the Churchyard without permission. After a number of meetings had been
held it was resolved that the school could be built in the Churchyard, provided
it was fenced off, and land adjacent to the Churchyard was donated by George
Wilson of Dallam Towers on which a School House (q.v) was erected at the expense
of the Hon Mrs Howard. Further details: Curwen, John F. History of Heversham
with Milnthorpe, pub. Titus Wilson, Kendal 1930.
