Boyd Hall

The following photos were taken at Boyd Hall. It has lain abandoned for quite some time now although recently has been burned down, my photos show what is left.

Built in 1870, Boyd Hall was the village school in Cranham until 1950. It is a rare example of a complete “model” Victorian school and is an excellent example of Essex yellow stock brickwork. It is named after the Boyd family of Cranham Hall who first provided education for local children in a cottage on their estate in 1818 and through whose generosity it was built.
