word ‘moon’ appears in the name of several Wetherspoon pubs, linking them with
the ideal pub envisaged by George Orwell. The highly acclaimed author called
his pub ‘Moon Under Water’. This building is the former British School. It
opened in 1838, with two classrooms, each measuring 40x30 feet, one for boys
and one for girls. The school closed in 1901 and was then used as a public
hall, a dairy and a restaurant.
