II The original church school of Ifield village is an 1840s Gothic-style stone building of three bays. The centre section has a roof with a wide gable; it is flanked by two recessed parts with smaller gabled sections. The tracery on the main ground-floor window echoes the style of a window in the adjacent St Margaret’s Church. [13][107]
