Sunday School. 1811, for Richard Ainsworth. Coursed and
squared stone with ashlar dressings and stone flagged roof.

asymmetrical composition, 5-2-2, with off-centre advanced
pedimented bay, and right-hand section originally the school
master's house with rusticated quoins, a band over the ground
floor openings and a moulded gutter cornice. Doorways to left

fanlights. Wood mullioned and transomed windows with wedge
lintels. Inscription (now badly worn) in pediment which reads,
"..accession of his magesty KING GEORGE the IIId to the throne
of these realms.". A series of buttresses to the front wall
