Jasmine Cottage/Teacher's Cottage

This listing consists of several Indentures that were purchased by SHS from Ebay in April 2021. They explain the sale of the cottage that was built to accomodate the teacher who taught at the school building next door. It is located on the western edge of the churchyard  and today it is called Jasmine Cottage. The sale was brought about by the opening of the new National School in the High Street that had a new Master's House built alongside it. This rendered the old school and the teacher's cottage redundant. To read a precis of the documents in PDF format, please go HERE
