Frank Taylor Lockwood produced many watercolours of Yardley and the church. A group painted around the 1930's focused on the church and Church Road. This particular watercolour is taken further along Church Road and depicts the Old Grammar School, which is the timber-framed building on the right hand side. This building dates from the latter part of the 15th century. It was known as the Grammar school from the 17th century onwards. The building you can just see on the right hand side was the Yardley Cottager's Institute. Built in 1860 but closed in 1912. This view of Yardley is much the same as it is today.
