Listing Text


SO 9083 6/35 The Castle

Early cl9. Irregular. Red brick and part stucco.Mullioned fenes- tration
throughout. Mock barbican gatehouse with stepped gable above. Embattlements
and turrets throughout. An extravagant example of castellation and of
little intrinsic merit, though in keeping viith its immediate environment.

The listed buildings in church Road and Rectory Road, Old Swinford do
not strictly present a group, but the existing picture is one which
should be preserved.
