Old School House

The original School House located at the top of Downham Road just before the bridge over the by pass, and which are cottages today. This first village school was built in 1816 and the picture shows the school room and masters house.

This view shows the Old School House originally built 1850, on the right and was located opposite the Toll booth (now Hudson's Ice Cream Parlor). 

The tree by the cottages (first one is currently the hair salon), still exists (2018).

The current school was built next to this in the 1960's to make way for the new road between the Brown Cow and the Church. This opened in 1967.
