Location -

Brookfield Court - Brookfield Court has been re-developed as a unique conversion of a Victorian Sunday School building with many of the original features being present. The sandstone building dates back to 1898 and was built in Gothic style with large mullioned and transomed windows. The gable walls are topped with finials and the two-stage bell turret at the centre of the ridge has been preserved. The building was designed by Thomas Worthington and built by W Robert Carlyle. Still clearly in evidence are two Memorial Stones laid on 24 June 1899 to mark the financial contributions of Robert Clay Esq and Captain Peacock J.P.
In its heyday the Sunday School boasted an enrolment of in excess of 580 Scholars and Teachers involved in a wide range of activities and groups including the Girls' Guild, Boys' Brigade, Life Boys, Girl Guides and Brownies, the Women's League, the Men's League, a Penny Bank, a Holiday Savings Club, Physical Culture classes, the Dramatic Society, the Concert Party, Minstrel Troupe and Singing Class; and various other Evening Clubs.
Whilst those days are now gone, the conversion of the building into accommodation for the elderly will ensure its continuing contribution to the needs of the local community for many years to come.
The building is complemented by the provision of a small number of mews houses within the grounds, built in an appropriate architectural style.
