WAITBYNY 70 NW SMARDALE

WAITBY NY 70 NW SMARDALE 37-/15/10004 Waitby & Smardale School II School, now store. Dated 1867, and built to replace a school established in 1660, now with minor C20 alterations. Rubble stone walling with quoins, and dressings to openings. Lined out render to front elevation. Slate roof laid to diminishing courses, with brick chimney to right gable and bellcote to the left. T-plan, with lower advanced gabled porch to front. Flanking the porch are 2 tall sash windows, originally 6 over 4 panes, now with lower sashes covered. Advanced porch with small 4-pane sash to gable, and plain doorway to right hand side wall. Rear wall with central sash window, 6 over 4 panes. Interior little altered, with single, undivided school room, retaining fixed shelving and some benches against end walls. Inscribed tablet in porch gable reads 'This school was rebuilt by public subscription A.D. 1867'. This is set above a reset tablet from the earlier school, which reads 'This schoole built by Mr James Highmoore(?) borne at Waitby cloth worker in London for the use of Waitby and Smardale Anno Domini 1660'. A little altered rural schoolroom, which clearly illustrates the scale of educational provision prior to the 1870 Elementary Education Act. ____________
