The Story of our Village Hall
A few of the old-timers in the village will still refer to our Village Hall in Stoke Road as ‘The Old School‘. The building still presents to the street a hint of its earlier form – the modest ornamental lintels over the upstairs front windows. It was re-built in that style in c.1800, after the Great Fire of 1798. It was set back from the roadside with probably three similar upstairs windows and two large windows with a central door for the ground floor. To the right of the front door was a freshwater well in the tiny front yard – in fact the well was not filled in until about 1955. This building served as the village school until 1913 when the new school was finished at Elm Tree Corner.
