Lancasterian School Room at Moor Top.
Lancasterian School Room at Moor Top.
Moor Top was a small farming and weaving community with an inn and adjacent blacksmiths forge when, in 1813, Joseph Lancaster, a young Quaker, founded one of his many schools there, beside the old pack-horse trail. The original building became dilapidated and was rebuilt in 1875 and further extended in 1902. On 2nd February 1950 a fire ravaged the interior of the building. Trustees and local people worked extremely hard to raise funds and the schoolroom was restored and in use again ten months later. It is a very well used building and services are still held there twice a month.
