Description

Later 18th / early 19th century, single- storey, rectangular-plan, 6 bays long, piend-roofed vernacular building of clay construction with some sections faced in stone, brick and cement render. Built as school, converted to church purposes 1929. NE elevation has earlier 20th century gabled porch of timber and corrugated iron, with gabled timber bellcote, flanked by later lean-to timber and corrugated iron bays. Accommodation within divided into one large room (originally schoolroom) and two smaller rooms and vestibule, which originally formed schoolmaster's house, to S end.

Interior

Dado height timber panelling to former school room. Cast iron range to each smaller room. Slightly coombed ceilings.

Materials

Mostly 4-pane timber casement windows; 12-pane sash and case window to SW elevation. Clay walls with render, stone or brick cladding in places. Piended Welsh slate roof. Brick ridge stack with thackstane to SW end, marking division between school room and smaller rooms.

Statement of Special Interest

Logie School is a rare and remarkably complete example of the use of clay as a vernacular building material. It also has historical educational and religious interest due to its former use as a school and a church. The Old Statistical Account (1791) commented that the schoolmaster of Logie Pert had a free house and garden and taught between 40 and 50 scholars in the winter, 10 less in the summer; it is possible that this refers to Logie Schoolhouse. Alternatively, Logie Schoolhouse may be one of the 2 unendowed schools, mentioned in the 1834-45 Statistical Account, as built close to the mills in the early 19th century. The Schoolhouse was then used by the Free Church, and the United Free Church, from 1929 until the 1980s.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
