BUSCOT THE STREET
SU2397 Village Hall and Reading
5/21 Room
GV II
Hall and reading room. 1897. By Sir Ernest George and Alfred Yeates for
Alexander Henderson of Buscot Park as recorded on the clock tower. Distinct
from the surrounding Cotswold vernacular estate houses in its more developed
Arts and Crafts manner with idiosyncratic revived Classical touches.
Coursed rubble stone, stone dressings and gabled stone tiled roof with ball
finials and scrolls to copings at eaves line. Stone stacks. One long range
with a round-arched loggia to the S, a wing to the E and a S clock tower. 1
storey with 2- and 5-light round-headed mullioned windows on W front, 2- and
4 light flat-headed mullioned windows on N. The main feature of the design
is the clock tower of 2 storeys comprising a stone clock chamber with
sinuously moulded Ionic angle pilasters rising to an open ringing stage of
wood topped by a weather vane. Contemporary L-shaped wooden seat in the
loggia.
