Full Description

School House is probably the oldest building in the area, with wattle and daub walls and interesting beams. It has its original old Manor House front but was rebuilt in Victorian times.

It has a steeply pitched plain tile roof with overhanging eaves and a large central brick ridge stack with three diamond set brick pots. The rear wall is all timber framed and the interior reputedly has an impressive early fireplace. (2)
