5.2 Listed buildings

There is one listed building in the conservation area: a former school building to Waterworks Lane. Unfortunately, this building is identified by English Heritage on their Buildings at Risk Register. The building is currently empty and in need of conservation.

The list description for the building is as follows:


TQ 3586 14/669 II

(West Side)
Premises of Testi & Sons, Millwrights

Mid C19 L-shaped building of coursed rubble, with freestone dressings, in Tudor style. Probably originally a school but now in industrial use. 1-storey north section (schoolroom?) and shorter 2-storey south part (house?). Large Tudor-arched north window, the others square-headed all with hoodmoulds. High pitched tiled roofs: house section has a row of conjoined octagonal chimneys on west side and a bellcote on east. Gabled west porch with Tudor-arched entrance. An interesting survival in a depopulated area.”
