8/27 Woodfold Hall (formerly listed as
27-8-1952 Woodfold Park)
Country house, now unoccupied and derelict. 1798 by James Wyatt. Sandstone
rubble with main facades of ashlar and with brick flues. Now roofless. 2
storeys, with plinth, band, and cornice. South facade of 9 bays, the 3
central bays flanked and separated by pilasters under a tetrastyle
portico. The columns and pilasters are of a Composite order: their
capitals are fluted above a band of acanthus leaves. The windows have
plain ashlar reveals, only a few sashes with glazing bars remaining.
The east and west facades are each of 5 bays, the central bay on each side
projecting and having tripartite windows, the ground-floor ones under a
super-arch. At the rear 2 wings run back towards the north and enclose a
courtyard. Their outer walls are mostly standing, but the inner walls,
facing the courtyard, have collapsed. Interior not fully accessible at
time of survey, but little of the decoration or architectural features
seems to remain. RCHM report with plan and photographs dated November
