3/141 Hanley Castle High School
(western block) [formerly
listed as Grammar School]
School, formerly grammar school. C17 with later alterations. Brick and
timber-framing with tile roof. Two storeys. One gable faces north-west.
The ground floor is underbuilt with brick and has a window. To the left
is a doorway and window with stone surround. The first floor is close-
studded with a middle rail and has a central window, and a small window at
the left. Between the tie-beam and collar of the truss are vertical struts.
Above are V-struts. Facing south-west, towards the churchyard, are three
parallel gables. The outer ones are of brick painted to resemble timber-
framing. The right-hand gable has a truss with struts between tie-beam and
collar. The middle gabled range is framed in irregular square panels. It
has one window on the ground floor, two on the first floor, and one between
the tie-beam and collar of the truss lighting the attic. Adjoining to the
south-east is a lower range of brick with a dog-tooth course at the eaves.
Its south-west wall is blank except for two windows towards the right with
segmental heads. A carved stone plaque has a Latin inscription illegible
at time of survey (June 1986). Reputed to be the Grammar School in Market
Snodsbury in the book, Right Ho Jeeves, by P G Wodehouse. See Murphy, N T P:
In Search of Blandings, London, 1981, p 206-7.
