TQ 7429-7529 (east side)

18/317 Herscliel's Dairy
(formerly listed as
20.6.67 Collingwood Farmhouse)
House. C18. Red brick, the upper floor a C20 addition in poorer quality brick.
Classical-Gothick mixture in style. Single storey to main elevation, 2 storeys to
return. Plinth and parapet, with stacks to left and to right. Projecting centre
piece with pilasters and open brick pediment, containing large semi-circular
arched recess, with traceried lunette over boarded door and 2 Y-traceried glazing
bar sashes, all in pointed arched surrounds. Smaller arched recesses to left and
to right with similar sashes, with 2 arches and similar sashes to left return,
right return with added porch and glazing bar sash. The upper sections of walling
create an unfortunate box-like appearance with inappropriate casements on return
elevation first floors. The building no doubt pre-dates Sir John Herscliel's
purchase of nearby Collingwood House in 1840, after whom the building is named.
