Full Description

The Tithe Map for Wootton Courtenay shows a large building labelled 317 occupying this plot and beyond to the east. The Apportionment describes it as "Churches Barn and Barton". [1] By the time the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map was surveyed, the building appears to have been demolished and a smaller structure built in its place, at SS 9385 4336. It is labelled as a school. It is possible, however, that some elements of the farmstead may have been incorporated into the school. [2] Fisher states that the school was erected in 1859. [3]
