J.B. Trevanion. Slatestone rubble; partly rendered. Roofs behind parapets.

tower to rear. The facade to the road is an asymmetrical composition; the gateway
has a circular plan tower to each side. To left the screen wall runs in a serpentine
plan for about 30 metres; to right the screen wall is an arc, about 10 metres long,
with a square plan terminal tower. Picturesque Gothic style.

corbels; corbelled string course above and embattled parapet with central stone
quatrefoil with shield of arms. To right and left there is a 2-storey circular plan
tower with bull-nose moulding and embattled parapet; these have lancets at ground
floor and blind cross loops at first floor. The serpentine wall to left is battered
at the base, with slatestone rubble string course and embattled parapet, about 3
metres high annd diminishing in height to left. The wall to right is similar, about
4 metres high; the terminal tower is of square plan with slatestone string course and
embattled parapet. Each rear wing is single storey, rendered at the inner side, with
string course and embattled parapet. Each side has two 2-light 12-pane casements
with segmental arches.
Interior: Not inspected.
