9/132 The Old School House


- II

House, used as school in C19. Dated 1611; altered 1848; restored late C20.
Timber-framed with brick and rendered infill, partly pebbledashed with some
brick refacing and replacement walling; machine-tiled roof and C19 ridge
stack to south of centre. Three framed bays aligned north/south with
chimney between central and south bay forming a baffle-entry plan; small
single-bay framed wing to west of north bay. Single storey and attic with
dormers. Framing: three rows of close-set studding from sill to wall-plate,
long straight braces in some lower corners; south gable end appears jettied
on shaped brackets but has been refaced in brick; no trusses visible externally.
Gothick style windows with pointed lights throughout. East front elevation:
two ground floor 3-light windows, two gabled dormers with 2-light windows;
ledged and battened door to left of centre. Attic lights in gable ends.
Interior: framing mainly intact, ogee stop-chamfered cross-beamed ceiling
in north bay; cross-frame between north and central bay moulded with ceiling
beam supported on moulded brackets inscribed with an heraldic device. Back-
to-back fireplaces. Winder staircase in north bay beside which is partly
concealed a blocked 3-light ovolo-mullioned window. At the south gable end
of the house is a C19 lean-to addition and in the gable is a datestone on
which is written "ERECTED/ AD 1611/ REPAIRED/ AD 1848". The building stands
adjacent to the site of the Royal Hunting Lodge to the west of the village
and the quality of the original interior detailing recently revealed inside
suggests that it was a building of some significance. The present entrance
is probably in its original position at the lower end of the former hall
with the detailing concentrated in the upper north bay. The building was
being restored at the time it was surveyed (July 1985).
