C20. Tall, stuccoed standstone plinth, cast iron with stuccoed brick replacing
former glazing and felt roof. Five-bay range with square flat-roofed porch at

breaks forward at outer windows and also window at each gable end and has
ornate cast- iron detailing above; gable ends are pedimented with acroteria.

in front of stuccoed wall. Main south-west elevation: two 4-pane windows set
either side of central porch; porch is blocked with entrance surmounted by cast

In spite of the removal of the glazing the building retains significant elements

to that on Dell Pool Shrine (qv). It forms a group with Hadzor Hall (qv) and
its balustraded retaining wall, archway and gate piers (qv).
