Full description

1840, Tithe Map (Cartographic). SDV339770.

This building appears to be depicted on the Tithe Map.


Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

'School' is depicted on the late 19th century historic map, to the front of the Church.


Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

Building is still depicted on the early 20th century historic map, but no longer labelled 'school'. This is likely to be due to the construction of the new school at the end of the 19th century across the road.
