This much-loved building facing Wellow’s village greens and famous Maypole was built in 1854 as the village school, but has also served Wellow in its time as a church and village hall, a place for meetings, learning arts and crafts, as a wedding reception venue, the Mayqueen banquet hall, as a girl guide hall and much much more. It is a place for all occasions.
