House. Early and mid C19. Brick with tiled roof. Centre block 2-
storey and attic, 3 bays, with gabled central porch and double
glazed doors under round arch. Three-light sash and casement
windows with gauged brick lintels. Centre bay raised as pediment,

elevation and extensive later rear 2-storey wing. Parallel rear
block of later C19 with shallow central gable of blue vitrified
brick. Brick dentilled eaves. Roof hipped.
Interior has some bolection moulded panelling, probably C19. The
present building appears to replace a C17 brick structure on the
same site, the bricks now reused as pavings. This earlier house
was the house of Jethro Tull the agricultural improver, 1674 - 1740
and was called Mount Prosperous. Tull moved here c.1709 and wrote
'Horsehoing Husbandry' (1733) and other works. (References: DNB
