The Community Centre (former National School), Birkenshaw
This has the date 1838, but was completed in April 1842 after considerable financial difficulties. There was a Government grant, but this only covered part of the costs. The teacher's house on the right was built in 1846. The school was overcrowded, and a new classroom (centre-right in the photograph) was completed in 1852, the end of a long struggle by Henry John Smith
