9/44 Hodder Place


House, once a preparatory school for Stonyhurst College, now divided
into flats. Late C18th with early C19th additions and later C19th
extensions. Sandstone ashlar with slate roofs. The central section
of the south front is of 3 storeys and 3 bays, with chamfered quoins,
sill bands to all floors and moulded cornice. The 3rd storey is
probably added, as its stone facing has a pinker hue. The windows are
sashed with glazing bars and plain ashlar reveals. The door has an
architrave with semi-circular head, beneath and open timber porch. To
the left is a 2-bay 2-storey portion of watershot stonework with
chamfered quoins. The 1st floor windows have plain stone surrounds
with semi-circular heads. On the ground floor is a single bay window
with square sides, probably later C19th. Further left are 2 bays of
punched ashlar with plain stone surrounds, with a door with plain stone
surround to their right. To the right of the central portion are 2 bays
with plain stone surrounds, having semi-circular heads on the 1st floor.
To their right is a later C19th octagonal corner tower, open at cellar
level to the east. It has pilaster strips with Tuscan capitals, moulded
blank arches, 1st floor windows with semi-circular heads to ground floor
windows with rounded upper corners and false keystones. The recessed
central section of the east facade is of 2 storeys and 6 bays, of sandstone
rubble with plain stone window surrounds and sill bands. At the north end
of the facade is a tower which matches that to the south.
