Once it was Wirksworth Grammar school, founded in 1576 it’s sited next to the church.
Now it is two apartments, the lower of the two is on the market, the curious may take a look at the ultra cool interior, it is probably not what you expect from the exterior, but be warned, if (like ours) your home is littered with the accoutrements of family life you might find its minimalism a little depressing.
The conversion has won several architectural awards, but being a listed building much of the original detail of the historic building is protected
And the gargoyles continue to keep a keen eye on the comings and goings of Wirksworth
I wonder who they are modeled on.
