England Primary
12/147 School


School. Circa 1860-70 with later C19 additions.
Grey Devonian limestone rubble with dressed limestone quoins and Bathstone
dressings; the later C19 addition is snecked limestones. Slate roof with
gabled ends; the gable ends have stone coping with gablets of the apexes
with finials. Crested ridge tiles and small metal ventilator on ridge.
Plan: A long rectangular plan containing one large school room open to the
roof, the right end has been extended. It was a mixed school and there are
2 porches on the front therefore the school room may have been divided
originally. There is a large lateral stack on the front left. A third
phase was the building of a wing at the rear of the right-hand end in the
later C19. Victorian Gothic style.
Exterior: Single storey. South front has a gabled porch to left of centre
with stone arch doorway with a hoodmould, 2 small ogee lancets in the left-
hand side and a lean-to porch in the angle on the right-hand side with a
band of seven ogee quatrefoil lights on the front and a cusped ogee-head
moulded doorway on the right side. Incorporated in the angle on the left
side of the gabled porch is a large lateral chimney stack with set offs and
a tall ashlar shaft with a moulded cap. To the left a buttress set back
from the left-hand corner with set offs. The left gable end has a large
pointed arch window, the stone tracery and mullions have been removed, and
above there is a small ventilation slit with cusped head.
The chamfered plinth does not continue around the addition at the right end
which has a blind front wall without windows and a large 4-light stone
window in the right-hand gable end with pointed and cusped heads to the
The later C19 wing at the rear of the right-hand extension has red brick
window surrounds.
Interior: not inspected but it seems to be one large hall, a school room,
with an arched brace roof on moulded stone corbels; the purlins and rafters
are also exposed with boarding between.
The school was built at the expense of the Champernowne family of
