Former country house, now College of Agriculture. Early C18,

3 bay porte-cochere with semi-circular arches with key and impost
blocks, flanked by Doric columns in antis; the middle bay also
has full Doric columns, all supporting a triglyph frieze and
modillioned cornice. The central half glazed panelled door has a

To the first floor are 7 smaller glazing bar sashes. The central
3 bays at first floor level are divided by rusticated vertical

panels. To the left is a lower 10 bay rendered service wing.
The right hand side front consists of 6 bays of glazing bar
sashes. The garden front is also arranged 2:3:2 with the middle
3 bays slightly adanced and bowed. Before the front is a 7 bay
loggia supported on Doric columns, the third pairs of which,

modillioned cornice with triglyph frieze. The central double
glazed doors have an overlight and are flanked by 3 tall glazing
bar sashes. To the first floor are 7 smaller glazing bar sashes.
All windows have moulded architraves, and, except those beneath
the loggia, cornices. To the right of the main block is a lower
3 bay range slightly recessed and rendered. This is the remnant
of the early C18 house. It has an off centre C19 half glazed

thicker glazing bars and moulded architraves having raised
keyblocks. To first floor are 3 smaller similar windows and

highly decorative recessed oval panel with doves with laurel
leaves in the corners. The stone dog leg staircase has outsize
stone balusters and handrail. On the newel post is a wrought
iron lampstand. The house was altered for the Bishops of
Lincoln's country residence. The C18 house is shown in the Banks
Collection, by J. C. Nattes, dated 1803, where the current
service wing can be seen to the right of the main house.
