Geology lesson, School Lane
The side wall of the school, centre, is of the local light grey Devonian limestone; much of it was quarried around Torquay. The window surrounds are of unknown freestone. The wall on the right is mostly of the coarse Teignmouth breccia, of Permian age, with lumps of red sandstone and grey limestone incorporated. The slate for the roof most likely came from Cornwall or North Wales.
