Deason School was erected in the same year as the original National School in the
parish as a result of a disagreement between the local non-conformist and Church of
England congregations. It was used on Sundays by the Bible Christians, but it is
not known when it ceased to be a school. It was subsequently used as a shed for
thatchers, as a cobbler's shop or, as now, as an outhouse. Rev. J. H. B. Andrews
'The Parish of Satterleigh and Warkleigh' T.D.A. Vol XCII. 1960.
