Great Bavington village centre
Great Bavington village centre
These buildings stand at the very centre of Great Bavington which at one time was a much larger place than it is today. The house in the foreground is the oldest building still standing in the village and was built in 1625. The nearer part was once the "Harvest Home" public house, and subsequently the manse for the United Reformed Church across the way before being superseded by the new manse of 1854 adjacent to the Church.

The far end of the building housed the village school from 1855 until 1946. From 1949 the school building housed a Youth Hostel but it was closed in 1959 because of "unseemly behaviour" by the hostellers - what ever can that mean?

The building is now divided into two private houses - Easter House (nearest the camera) and Easter Cottage.
