The Institute, Long Marton
The Institute, Long Marton
This was built in 1893, due to the generosity of Rev. Hay Erskine who provided the 750 to build the Institute out of his own pocket, and endowed it with a sum of 200 per annum. The building was open from 8am to 10pm every day except Sunday, when it was open from 2pm to 5pm. There was a reading room with books and newspapers, and a recreation room with a public room upstairs for sales and lectures. A wide range of courses was offered, such as nursing, veterinary surgery, drawing, and music including church choir practices. It is still used for meetings and functions. It is a pity that the appearance has been spoilt by the blocking of a large window in the gable-end.
