The Village School

II


Dated 1874 on circular carved stone crest set into projecting front porch. Designed
by T M Wyatt. Flint faced with bands of yellow brick with dog tooth moulding. The
roof is high pitched and tiled. The main block is H-shaped with gables to the end
wings. There are picturesque school houses of irregular plan, but matching style and
materials at the north-west and at the north-east corners. Tall casement windows with
mullions and transoms. South facing circular window in the east gable. Central bell
turret on the ridge. Typical of village schools of the period, but exceptionally well
built and with distinctive features. Given to the village by the Darnley family.
