Conservatory. Early C19. The south-western half of the frame is cast-
iron, the north-eastern half is wooden on a high plastered brick plinth. Circ-
ular plan. One storey with glazed hemispherical dome, above a cellar.
Pedimented main entrance to the south-west; the glazed wall of the south-
west semi-circle is divided into bays defined by pilasters. Interior.
The dome is carried on a pair of brick arches which spring from a central
brick flue in the form of a column which retains fragments of fluted plaster-
work and a coved capital. Brick steps are built around the column on a
circular plan. Cast iron pilasters in the south-west half, and a frieze
of brick key and acanthus leaf design. The conservatory was heated from
a furnace in the cellar. It was derelict at time of resurvey (June 1986).
