The Old Dairy
- II

Ornamental dairy and probably wash house. Early C19 described in sales parti-
culars of 1829. It comprises 2 octagonal 1 storey chamber in Flemish bond
linked by a later C19 link block in stretcher bond. Left hand chamber has a
tiled roof with some fishscale tiles, the rest is covered in modern felt. Each
chamber has pointed arch windows and doorcase, the larger left hand chamber,
probably the dairy has 3 windows, door with the top 4 panels glazed, ceiling
covered in lath and plaster and reinforced by C20 brick pier. It may have had
shelves originally. The smaller right hand chamber probably a former wash
house, has 2 pointed arched windows, pointed. 6 flush panelled early C19 door,
wooden shelves and chimney. Both are rendered in Roman cement. This building
appears to be the one described in the sales, particulars of Eastwick Park of
1829 as an 'ornamental dairy'. Derelict at time of survey.
