HEDGELEY SHEPHERDS LAW
NU Ol NE NU 087166
4/253 Ruins of screen
wall and end
pavilions to south
of hermitage
II

Probable eyecatcher, early C18. Squared stone. 1+3+1+3+1 bays. Centre, with
triple-arched entrance, largely fallen. Flanking parts have blind arcades of
round arches with alternating long and short voussoirs, on projecting imposts;
chamfered cornice and blocking course; small windows in some arches. Projecting
end pavilions have taller but similar blind arches holding windows; right
pavilion partly fallen.

Probably constructed as an eyecatcher, although there are associations with a
manorial court founded by the Brownes of Shawdon c.1710. In later years there
was a small farm on the site, now replaced by a hermitage; at time of survey
this is being enlarged to form a small monastery/retreat centre, and the
fallen parts of the C18 structure are being restored.
