Listing Text


8/183 Dashwood


School, now house. Probably 1835 though RCHM give late C18 or early C19. Ashlar, tiled roof with gable ends, stone dressings, ashlar stacks with brick flues. West facade: single storey, 4 window range. To the left a cross-wing presents a gable to the front. This gable has a 3-light ashlar mullioned and transomed window, each light having a 4-centred head. Above is a lancet opening with a 2-centred head containing stone flag louvres.
Remaining windows are probably C20 wooden 2-light square windows with pointed heads to the lights under concrete lintels. Horizontal glazing bars. To the right of the cross-wing is a high 2-centred stone arch with a door under a 4-centred arch beneath. This is flanked to the right by a stone buttress. Between the 2 righthand window is a projecting stone stack with brick flue of 3 stages. The flue is set diagonally and has a moulded capping. The buttressed north wall forms a prominent feature in Penny Street. Probably the National School mentioned by Hutchins as being built in 1835.
