The village schoolhouse was built in 1851 as an all-age school where the pupils had to pay for their lessons. It closed in 1981 when there were only eight pupils attending. The bell tower had been removed a few years earlier. The two entrances to its grounds have unusual stone posts which once supported the winding engine at the Ramshaw lead mine.

Some of this text was taken from the leaflet 'Look at Blanchland' which is available inside the Abbey.

A Visitors Book is available if you would like to make any comments or requests.
