Ruins of the old Hewell Grange
Country house. 1712, possibly by Francis Smith, remodelled 1815 by Thomas
Cundy, partially demolished 1889. Sandstone ashlar and some brick. Main
(north) front survives, and a little of the other walls. North front:
large portico has a pediment with Plymouth arms supported on six Corinthian
columns (four to front); this is Cundy's addition to a facade of 2 + 5 + 2
windows, the divisions defined by Doric pilasters; the windows have moulded
architraves and cornice. The house was rendered roofless by a firework
display in honour of the Shah of Persia in July 1889. It was set in grounds
by Humphry Repton, altered when the new house was built. (Howard Colvin,
