Brentwood: Edwardian Postcards (9)

“Founded as a boys’ grammar school in 1558 by Sir Antony Browne of Weald Hall, South Weald. Refounded in 1851. … S. of the chapel, set back from the road, is Main School, 1909-10 by Chancellor & Son. Brick, mostly Neo-Tudor style but in the middle, an ungainly projecting clock tower topped with a cupola” [Bettley / Pevsner p176]
