8/112 Orangery with flanking
walls, botheys,
15.3.66 glasshouse and pavilions
(formerly listed as
Orangery and 2 pavilions
at Ripley Castle)


Orangery, botheys, garden wall with glasshouse and pavilions. Possibly
c1785 by William Belwood for Sir John Ingilby, altered 1817-18 for Sir
William Amcotts Ingilby, the glasshouse probably c1840. Ashlar, coursed -
squared gritstone and glass; orangery roof replaced mid C20. The range is
composed of a projecting central 5 x 2 bay single-storey orangery flanked by
garden walls, both originally with lean-to glass houses but that to left
demolished. The walls terminate in 2 x 1 bay projecting single-storey
pavilions in the same Classical style as the orangery. The north side of
the flanking walls have range of lean-to botheys and garden stores. The
orangery: full-height round-arched windows with fanlight, that to centre
having a glazed door. Fluted Ionic pilasters between the windows support
moulded entablature and modillioned cornice surmounted by a parapet with
blocking pieces and wooden vase balusters. Flanking walls approximately 4
metres high with flat ashlar coping. The pavilions have similar
fenestration to the orangery; the left (west) pavilion with rounded pane in
the fanlights, and the east pavilion with blocked windows; the parapets are
crowned with boar and squirrel finials. Rear: the orangery has a central
glazed double door with fanlight in an architrave. 2 flights of
cantilevered steps, cyma moulded on the underside and with a plain iron
railing, rise against the side walls of the flanking botheys and turn to
rise against the rear wall, meeting above the doorway at a gate in the
blocking course giving access to the roof. The gateway is flanked by large
squirrel and boar finials. The botheys and potting sheds have plain board
doors and square small-paned sliding sash windows; the roof is corrugated
asbestos. Interior: the west pavilion has a black and white marble
fireplace with fluted Ionic columns and shield with boar and squirrel
badges. The gardens and woodland walks were remodelled on the site of
earlier gardens but by 1847 Sir William regarded the hothouses as an unwise
expense and recommended his successor to "upset my folly and houses, etc".
The west pavilion was used as a tea room, the east pavilion was converted to
a squash court mid C20. J Low, 'William Belwood, Architect and Surveyor',
