ContextThe Headmistress, Mrs Field recounted some of the school's history: the school was originally a wooden building which burnt down in 1793 when a subscription was raised amongst the landowners in the chapelry (see plaque in school). Two trusts were thereafter in existence: Kitching and Harling and the School House Trust Fund. The school house, on the left hand side before the farm and school are reached, was sold in the 1960s-70s. An article was published in a farming magazine referring to the 'School on the Fells'.
