The old Free School-house stands to the north-west of the parish church and is a large two-story building of ironstone with mullioned windows, red-tiled roofs, and two gables on the principal or south front towards the churchyard: on the north side it faces directly on to Church Street. The building was restored in 1904, since when it has been used as a Church House. A sundial on one of the gables is dated 1621.
