SHEBBEAR
SS 40 NW
6/71 Shebbear College - south-east
- range
GV II
College building, reputedly the original headmaster's house. 1841 remodelled
probably circa 1929. Rendered stone walls. Hipped slate roof. Axial brick stack
and 1 at left end.
Plan: altered in C20 but apparently single depth with 4 main rooms, entrance and
stairhall to left of centre but stairs may not be in original position and same
subdivision has taken place.
Exterior: 3 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front, 7 to the 2nd floor. All windows
early C20. To left and left of centre are 2 canted 3-light bay windows with 8:16:8-
pane sashes. To right of the right-hand bay are tripartite sash windows. Between
the 2 bays is a rendered Neo-classical fluted surround to doorway with part-glazed
door. Above it is a 24-pane sash window with low iron balustrade in front of it and
a shallow arched recess above it with semi-circular plaster relief in radial
fanlight design. 2nd floor windows are all late C19 or early C20 small-paned
casements.
Shebbear College was founded as the principal school and training college for the
Bible Christian Society which originated at nearby Lake Farm.
Interior: not fully accessible and evidently much altered in early C20 but probably
original chimneypiece and flanking cupboards with panelled doors survive in room to
right of hall.
