DescriptionN.B. There was a Grammar School in Crosby Garrett from the first half of the 17th century but the endowment was so small that by the end of the 19th century it was used to finance scholarships for children of the parish who attended the local elementary school. The latter was erected in 1894 by Crosby Garrett School Board and opened on 30th April 1895. It closed as Crosby Garrett County Primary School on 16th July 1980
