Was the infant classroom of the old school and still contains the original long desks and benches from the early 1800s. There are displays of toys from the
19th and early 20th Century and samplers made by pupils from the school
along with some of their exercise books. Victorian clothes are available on
racks for visiting children to dress up and slates and slate pencils for them to
write and draw on. A few old text books may bring back some memories.
