June 1975. Visit.
School in churchyard, has two gabled porches labelled 'boys' and 'girls' and two plaques, one referring to the founding in 1812 (in Latin) by the bequest of one Kett, the other to a rebuilding in 1841. (S1) claims that each gable is of the same date as its plaque, but it seems obvious that the whole is of 1841 with the earlier plaque reset. Building should be preserved.
