7.9.77 The Jungle
(formerly listed as
Folly at The Jungle)


Farmhouse, with folly facade. c1820. Built for Samuel Russell Collett. Facade to
farmhouse in the form of a sham castle built of overburnt bricks run together into
vitreous masses. 2 storey, with slate hiped roof. Square turret at one end, half
round one at other end, and 3 window bays between with central single storey
semi-circular porch. The window and door frames are made of oak branches forming
rough gothic ogee arches with twin lights with crazy Y-bars and leaded panes. The
branches forming the frames of the doorway and window above almost rejoin at the sill
forming an oval shape. The south turret has arrow-slits. The north turret has
pointed arch windows with sashes complete with glazing bars. The contemporary brick
built farmhouse behind has some similar windows and a new tile roof.
