6/167 The Hermitage


Folly. Mid-C19. Sandstone rubble, hipped stone tiled roof. Consists
of a tall section of a "ruined" wall with square plan chapel to rear.
Gothic ruin, two rows of three Early English style pointed arched lights
with roll moulded edges. Semi-circular headed Norman style window with
lattice leaded glazing to sides of chapel at rear. Built as an
eye-catcher from Courtfield (qv), presumably also once visible from the
river and main road and hence contributing to the picturesque setting
of the house.
