11/55 Gatehouse to
Sutton Court
Gatehouse to clergy house now Sutton Court (q.v.). 1825, said to have
been designed by Rev. Charles Lacy, incumbent 1819-39, and built at his
expense (Richards(1974)38). E bay removed c.1970. Red brick with stone
and stucco dressings and steep old red tile roof. A tall single-storey
gatehouse range facing S. A convincing Tudor style design with large
gabled 4-centred arched gateway, blank stone shields in panel over,
octagonal crenellated turrets and jamb mouldings unbroken at spriging
of the arch. Plinth and hoodmould to arch continued as strings across
turrets. Raking brick coping to gables front and rear. Square passageway
has moulded rib cross-vault with floral boss at centre and at wall ends
of ribs, and corner corbels. Elaborate wooden traceried double doors in
W wall. Buckley dwg of 1832 (HRO) shows gateway in middle of 3-bays
range, but E bay now gone. W bay remains with projecting W gable
chimney, blank labelled recess on S, 3-light large mullioned and
transomed labelled window on N, and W-end door under tiled lean-to hood
with elaborately cusped brackets. Gabled N side of gateway has simpler
mouldings and stepped brick buttresses with tumbled offsets.
