    Hi all - have been away for a while as i moved house recently so been really busy with redecorating - painting - laying carpets etc.
    Had a free afternoon so went on a double explore with ed the duck.

    "The School was founded in 1824 by Lord Harrowby & opened in 1825. Originally there were two class rooms one for boys & one for girls & there were around 100 pupils in attendance.
    It was described as a "quaint" building with the headmaster`s house in between the girls & boys classrooms. Parents paid 1/3 per quarter ( about 6.5p ) with the Earl paying 2/3 ( 11.5p ) for each child. Rules laid down in 1843 state that attendance should be days per week from 9:30am to 4pm but not on Saturdays.
    Sunday school was 9:30am & at 2pm, both of which HAD to be attended. Children had to arrive five minutes before services. There was a quarterly payment of 9/- (45p) for copy books, but reading books & stationary were free.
    In 1895 the building was enlarged. The School was also open in the evenings ( 1848/1849) so that any railway worker who wished to lean to read & write may do so while building the nearby railway.
    Due to falling pupil numbers & government cutbacks the school was closed in July 1981 & the remaining 17 pupils went to near by schools. The building appears to have being lived after the school had closed, but has since become boarded up and disused"

    Some pictures on the day:
