St James's School 1842

THE ORIGINAL SCHOOL was built in 1842, in Salop Street in Dudley, near St James Church and designed by the architect, William Bourne of Dudley.

It was moved to the Museum in 1991 using funds generously provided by the Charles Hayward Trust. Today you can see it as it would have been in 1912.
