SO 44 NE
5/11 Great House and
flanking walls attached
2.9.66 to north and south
House. GS/1737 on rainwater heads. Brick with limestone and sandstone
dressings. Hipped Welsh slate roof and brick stacks. T-plan with garden
front to west. Cellar, two storeys and attics. West elevation has 3:1:3
windows, glazing bar sashes, the outer ones in full-height bows and gauged
brick heads. Stone plinth, plat band and moulded cornice beneath flat coping.
Dated lead rainwater heads to each corner. Central Doric porch with two
unfluted columns. Frieze with lozenges containing paterae in metopes. Cornice
has projections on soffit above guttae and triglyphs. Doorway has fluted
architrave, enriched fanlight. Glazed two-leaved doors, probably late C19.
Projecting range to east has dentilled brick eaves cornice and two entries,
both with columns. Interior has re-positioned three-flight C18 oak open
well staircase with turned balusters and carved tread ends. Flanking brick
walls extend about 15 yards north and south. Each has a doorway that to the
south with wrought iron gate. It is possible that the bows are not of 1737
date; if they are (the brickwork is coursed in) this is a very early example
of a type of facade design later in the century to become very popular. (BoE,
p 99; RCHM, Vol II, p 47).
