3/363 The Old School House


Schoolhouse, now private house. Circa late C18 to early C19 and mid C19. Stucco
front, otherwise painted rubble, slate sills, hipped dry Delabole slate roof to front
and parallel hipped roof over original house at rear. Painted brick chimneys over
side walls.
Double depth plan of 2 equal reception rooms flanking central passage leading to
central stair between rear rooms which were originally the reception rooms.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 2-window south east front. Central doorway with C20 door and
C19 cast iron trellis porch with round-arched doorway and trellis decoration
(probably manufactured at the nearby Perran Foundry qv.). Half-dormerheaded niche
over. Original 16-pane hornless sashes. Rear, originally the front has symmetrical
3-window front with bracket moulded keystones to the shallow arched openings. Large
C20 lean-to porch in front of central doorway. Window over with coloured marginal
panes, otherwise 4-pane sashes except for C20 window to ground floor left.
Simple interior with most of the original C19 carpentry and joinery.
Said to have been used as a small school in the C19 until the construction of the
nearby Board School (1876). Obviously an important local building in the C19, more
research needed.
