Hook Green School
Bayham Abbey School, Hook Green, was built in 1860 by Lord Camden for the children of the Bayham Estate designed by Architect David Brandon and built by Messrs Trollope. The School soon proved to be too small and a new classroom was added in 1885, taking the school roll up to 104. The School closed in 1947 and in 1954 was converted into two dwellings - School House and School Lodge.
