Orangery in grounds of Woodfold Hall (q.v.), early-to-mid C19. Walls of
brick faced with sandstone ashlar, with iron-framed glass roof. 7 bays
long by 4 wide. The 3 central bays on the south side project forwards as a
bow. Windows have horned sashes with glazing bars. The bays are separated
by engaged columns on the south side and pilasters on the other
sides.These have a foliated band above the necking, stand on pedestals,
and support an entablature. Inside, the walls between and above the
windows are cased in wooden panelling. Between each bay a very slim iron
column rises to the roof, the outer part of which is coved and meets a
central lantern of rectangular plan. The building is now derelict: part of
the roof has collapsed and all the glass is broken. Marked on 1st edition
of 6 inch Ordnance Survey map, published in 1847 as 'Hot House'.
