SK 3059 5/43 22.6.50.
SK 35 NW 7/43
1868. Built by John Smedley. A large castellated mansion, the nucleus
having square 3-storeyed towers at the angles, and the site enclosed by
battlemented curtain-walls with out-towers. Late in date arid pure pastiche,
it may be regarded as a mammoth folly. It is a well-known landmark, crowning
a height, and from a distance has character. Unoccupied and ruinous.
