4/9 The Gothick Library
Chapter house. 1832, by Vuillamy. The shell of a building once attached to
the Regency mansion, which was later demolished. Stucco on the parts once
exposed to view, brick on 2 faces; pyramid slate roof. Octagonal plan.
Crocketted pinnacles above stepped buttresses at the angles; between them a
parapet has a moulded canopy and a dripstone band, enclosing 6 diamond cusped
panels (to 4 faces); a hood-mould to the pointed 2-light window, which has
tracery in its upper part and cusped ogees below a transom: a moulded
(dripstone) base. 4 sides have windows of the full height, one with the
doorway formed below the transom; the other windows have cills at transom
level. At the 'rear', 2 faces have brickwork, and there is an octagonal
buttress, rising above the parapet as a crenellated turret (being the flue
from the fireplace). Within, the roof frame is late C20, the windows
remain unglazed, but there are fragments of plasterwork with cusped quatrefoils.
The fireplace is opposite the doorway. There are prints, which show the
original appearance, with shelving up to the higher cill levels.
