Former Collierley National School

  • Description

    "....Collierley national school of 1846, to the designs of George Walton, is designated for the following principal reasons: * Architectural Interest: its composition and stonework reflects a degree of refinement for a modest school, indicative of its design by a competent architect; * Date: as an early school constructed at a time when purpose-built schools were still relatively rare; * Intactness: while having undergone some modification during its conversion to an extended board school, the integrity of the original school remains; * Group value: together with the Grade II listed former vicarage and Grade II listed church, this school forms the historic core of the village and contributes greatly to its historic character...."
