beautifully calm modern heads on this hoodmould over the main entrance doorway. built in 1856-7 by w.g. and e. habershon for the school which later became st.marylebone grammar school, now part of the independent Abercorn school. the damaged date was given as a.d. 1792, when the school was founded. It had an interesting history, with insane treasurers and unfit headmasters - one of whom murdered his wife and child before attempting suicide- and some interesting pupils, including authors jerome k. jerome , patrick o'brien and len deighton, as well as bertram mills of circus fame and singer adam ant; not a bad list for such a small school.
