Long Description:
The Old School Room on Main Street, Yoxford, now a private 1 bedroom house.

"The Old School Room, High Street and dwarf wall to High Street and eastern boundary Built as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel c1833-35, and extended to the rear to provide a Sunday school in the mid-nineteenth century. The whole building was converted to a school room and church hall c1888- 90, after a new chapel had been completed next door. In the mid and later twentieth century it was a church hall. Now a dwelling.

The former chapel has a distinguished classical façade of red brick with gault brick pilasters and cornice. The capitals to the pilasters are of moulded gault brick. Tripartite first floor window in painted stone surroundresting on moulded brackets containing small pane casements, similar stone surround containing a central double door and two small pane casement windows below. Shallow pitched Welsh slate roof, hipped to the sides, the roof projects slightly and rests on a heavy moulded eaves cornice.

Its two bay eastern return elevation is highly visible from the High Street and was designed as a display frontage. Pilasters of gault brick to centre and corners. The glazing within the tall windows in the side elevations has been replaced with PVCu.

Single storey red brick range at the backappears to be a late twentieth century rebuilding of the original mid-nineteenthschoolroom wing. This is faced in red brick and has a red pan tile roof and is now a doctor’s surgery."
