Rose Ash School and School House
School and schoolmaster's house, converted to a private house and disused at time of
survey (1987). 1847 (datestone on school porch), the schoolmaster's house considered
by Copeland to be a rebuilding of a church house. Stone rubble; slate roofs, gabled
at ends; internal rear lateral stack to the school, projecting rear lateral stack
with a bread oven and modern brick shaft to the schoolmaster's house.
Plan: sited south of the church, the rear walls backing on to the churchyard. The
small, single depth school to the west has a central doorway and has been converted
into a cottage by the introduction of a second storey. The taller schoolmaster's
house, adjoining at the east is a single depth 2 room plan range with a doorway on
the right return, heated room to the right, unheated room to the left.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 3:2 bay front, each building symmetrical. The school has a
central gabled porch with a segmental arched outer doorway and a C20 glazed timber
front door with small panes; left and right small-pane timber casements with square-
headed hoodmoulds. 3 C20 gabled dormers with small-pane timber casements. The rear
elevation, facing into the churchyard, has 2 blocked windows with square-headed
hoodmoulds. The schoolmaster's house has regular fenestration of 2 bays of small-
pane timber casements with square-headed hoodmoulds; C20 timber porch on right return
with a C20 glazed timber small pane front door.
Interior: Not inspected.
Group value with the church and other listed buildings in the centre of the village.
The school held 50 children (Tull).
