East range of
quadrangle at Rossall School
SD 34 SW 1/49


1867. Architect E G Paley. From the north range as far south as the gatehouse,
the design of the north range is continued, though with a slight variation of the
tracery. 1 door (planked with ornamental cast iron hinges) in chamfered 2-centred
arch, with gabled stone porch on polished granite columns with Romanesque capitals.
But the east elevation has Italianate treatment: round-arched sashes with marginal
glazing bars and moulded imposts.
Gatehouse is 3-storeyed, octagonal turrets ogee-roofed, with cross-shaped finials,
and crenellated parapet. 4-centred arches, 2-storey canted oriel above, with cusped
sashes. Turrets have 2 storeys of round-arched windows, 1 of pointed cusped lancets:
bands of diamond panels, 1 with inscribed quatrefoils. Various characteristic
Arts-and-Crafts details: eg notice boards under tower arch, with quadrant-shaped
brackets to deep entablature. And chimneypiece in Marshall's lodge, with relief
sculpture of a tree in typical Arts-and-Crafts surround.
Remainder of east range has mullion-and-transom crosses, those on 1st floor with
depressed arched lights. Doorways with depressed arched heads and 2-light fanlights.
