School and School House,
with boundary walls


Former school and school house, now a dwelling. Mid C19. School room: Dressed
squared Cotswold limestone to cavetto cornice and blocking course, coped gables,
concrete tile, 2 metal ridge ventilators. The cornice returns at gable ends to
crown projecting pilasters. A long low schoolroom formerly with 2 entrances,
presumably Boys and Girls. One storey, three 2-light and one 3-light chamfered
mullion casements to 4 centred heads and under stopped drips; between 1 and 2 is
a C20 glazed door in the original opening with 4-centred head and stopped drip,
and far right a blocked doorway to same detail. In each gable a large 3-light
mullioned casement. The School House is a late Gothic villa, linked to the
school room by a single,storey block in similar detail. Ashlar walls, alternate
courses of plain and beaver-tailed tiles. Two storey building with eaves gable
left and full gable right, central gabled porch with arched opening to plank
door, small side-lights to cheeks, small oculus over. Two light casements to
left and right at each level; mullions run to stopped chamfer. Link unit to
left similar 2-light casement. Casements with horizontal bars. Large external
gable stack, left. In addition to the intrinsic merit of the two buildings,
they have addedninterest through association with Laurie Lee's 'Cider with
Wall to road carved squared limestone to weathered coping; at far left end is
iron gate; drops to lower level opposite house and returns to pair of iron
gates. An important element in the setting of the group.
