Wilderspin National School Museum
Wilderspin National School is one of the most important schools surviving in England. Built in 1844, this Grade II* Listed Building is unique because of its association with the educational pioneer, Samuel Wilderspin, the self-styled founder of the Infant School System. The School was closed in 1978 and the restored building reopened in January 2009.
The Museum presents a vivid and exciting picture of school life and teaching from 1844 to the present day. The school has many exhibits including a unique Wilderspin playground and classroom and a Victorian schoolroom.
