School, now workshop. Early C17, altered in early C18 and in
C20. Coursed squared sandstone with quoins, C20 pantile roof
(replacing stone slate).
T-plan formed by main range on east-west axis with projecting
porch-cum-stair-turret on south side. Two storeys, the eaves
raised by 3 courses; now 1:1 windows, the left side of the
porch and the whole of the range to the left of that now
covered by C19 or C20 workshops. The 2-storey gabled porch has
a 2-light double-chamfered stone mullioned window on each
floor, the lower now blocked with brick, and in the right-hand
re-entrant side a Tudor-arched doorway (now altered as a
window) with a chamfered surround, a massive lintel and a
straight drip-band run out left.
The main range to the right has a 4-light double-chamfered
mullioned window at ground floor, with a hoodmould, and at 1st
floor a small 3-light window with chamfered flush mullions.
The left gable wall has a 5-light double-chamfered mullioned
window at ground floor, and an inserted window above (flanked
by the jambs of a former mullioned window); the right-hand
gable wall has large wooden workshop doors replacing former
mullioned windows on both floors, both flanked by the returned
ends of former hoodmoulds.
The rear has two 4-light mullioned windows at ground floor
(like the others), the remains of a former mullioned window in
the centre of the 1st floor, an inserted window at this
position and similar inserted windows to left and right.
INTERIOR: not inspected, but altered staircase visible in
porch, and a series of large quarter-round moulded beams at
ground floor.
HISTORY: former list entry records "Plaque with Derby crest
and date 1633" but this was not visible at time of survey in
1991.
