Bushmills National School

I wish I could get some more information about the history of the former National School at Bushmills, County Antrim.

An inscription lozenge attached to the frontage, below the chimneys, proclaims that it was established in 1842.

Barely one century later, about 1950, it became the premises of The British Legion.

I'm sure it has been vacant for decades.

It's a fine old building and has to be worthy of restoration. 

The Environment agency has tidied it up of undergrowth and detrimental weeds etc.

This building has a drive leading up to it directly opposite The French Rooms, a new café restaurant in the village.

There is now a tourist office beside it, where the village library used to be.
