Burnsall Grammar School MYD34491 (c) YDNPA, 2023
The Old Grammar School in Burnsall still houses the local primary school. It was built in 1601 next to the church with a house for the master and dormitories for boarders. The money for the school was donated by William Craven, Lord Mayor of London, who was born in Burnsall. A panel over the door records its founder “William Craven Alderman of London founder of this Schoole Anno Dmi 1601”.
The school is built of ashlar (finely dressed) masonry with a graduated stone slate roof. It is two storeys high and there are 19th century and later additions.
