In 1870, Alfred Burder designed a teacher’s residence, attached to the National School in the village where he was born and where he might have gone to school..
Two builders submitted prices, which also included repairs to the school. Mr. Glassrock’s tender for the residence was £222 10s. 0d. and £7 10s. 0d. for the repairs; Mr, Brown’s tender, which was accepted, was £205 10s. 0d. and £9 10s. 0d. for the school repairs.
The old-school house and school ares still standing on the corner of Bedwell Road.
