Village hall, former school. Circa 1880. Snecked volcanic stone with volcanic
ashlar quoins and Bathstone detail; red tile roof with plain and crested ridge
tiles. Open hall with southern gable end facing south onto village green. C20
service rooms on left side and original entrance porch on right side. Gable-ended
main block with tall gables. Continuous low moulded dripmould around building and
lower section of wall is slightly battered. South front includes main window
comprising a group of 3 trefoil-headed lancets, the central taller than the outer,
and all under same relieving arch. Above, near top of gable is an oculus window
containing a quatrefoil. Each gable has plain coping. Right (east side) includes
a 3-light square-headed stone window with chamfered mullions. Entrance porch to
rear under monopitch roof. Outer side has range of timber windows with heavy
mullions between and in front end is a 2-centred arched doorway. Rear gable end

a ventilator near the gable top. Interior not inspected.
The old school looks like part of the Rev. W T A Radford's architectural scheme
for the village centre.
