The History of Askerswell Parish

Eggardon Hill

Detailed and Recent History: Askerswell School opened in 1857, as a local initiative, and became an elementary school in 1871. It was enlarged in 1901 to cater for seventy children and closed in 1965. The School is now a private house. Recollections of the School and village life are recorded in Askerswell Millennium Folder which is available for short-term loan from the Parish Meeting Chair.
