Remember These in Winteringham?

Winteringham Local History and Genealogy

Three Iconic Winteringham Buildings

Do you remember the Temperance Hall?

Temperance Hall, Winteringham - now demolishedIt was on the corner of West End and Hewde Lane, with the ‘main entrance’ being a porch just on the western (Hewde Lane) end, and steep steps to the ‘back door’ into a kitchen area at its eastern end in West End.  It was built in 1882 at a cost of about 300.

It was used for dances, when there was usually a pianist and a drummer, and for wedding receptions.

It was also used by swallows who built a multitude of nests under its eves in the spring and summer.

However, its tile roof was in a state of disrepair, especially on its southern side, with tiles sliding off the roof into the neighbouring garden in the late 1950s, and it was pulled down in the early 1960s.

Do you remember the Wesleyan Chapel built in 1891?

Always an imposing building, the Wesleyan Chapel even in a state of disrepair (above) and in the mid-sixties when it was still in use (left).  The ‘schoolroom’ is to the right.



Do you remember the National School?

Winteringham National School 1967Pictured here in August 1965, and taken from the top of the church tower, the National School closed in the mid-1920s when the current school was built, after 80 years service to the village.

By the time this photograph was taken, it was used infrequently.

We have memories of it used in the 1950s for bring and buy sales, dances, parties, and the annual Christmas treat of a film show, which from memory was mainly Charlie Chaplin.  Thirty years after its closure as a school, the school atmosphere still pervaded.

It has now been converted to a residential  property.

More about the National School on this site:  There are references and an evocative photograph of the National School on the Schooling page.
