Country House. Mid C18. In 1790, for John Bridgeman Simpson,
the brick was whitened by Repton, who also laid out the grounds.
In 1850 William Burn restored the red brick and carried out other
alterations to the windows and parapet. Mid C20 much of the rear
and service wings demolished. Red brick and ashlar. Slate roofs
the left wing being hipped, the right pyramidal. 3 yellow brick
stacks. Ashlar parapet and moulded cornice. 2.1/2 storeys, 5
bays, flanked by 3 storey single bay slightly projecting wings
with ashlar quoins. Set on an ashlar plinth with 1st and 2nd
floor ashlar bands. Central doorway, having a 6 panelled door
with fluted surround to each panel and corner patera, with trace-
ried overlight. Flanked by single C20 Doric pilasters supporting
a slightly projecting pediment. Either side are 2 glazing bar
sashes with further single, larger glazing bar sashes in the
outer wings. Above are 6 similar smaller sashes, the central 4
