Church Walk

View down the side of Holy Trinity Church. The small building between the two sets of railings is the old Donnison School building - a Georgian schoolroom for girls. The building came up for sale in 2000 and was bought by the Living History group. It was set on fire by vandals while it stood empty and had to be extensively renovated.

During renovation work, builders found two skeletons under the floor. The local coroner was called and he said the bones were ancient as the building had probably been erected on top of part of the churchyard over a couple of graves.
