Country House, now used as school. 1874 by Waterhouse. Snecked sandstone
rubble with slate roofs. 2 storeys with attic. Main front, facing
north-west, asymmetrical. Windows have ovolo-moulded mullions and are sashed

mullioned and transomed ground-floor window, and mullioned windows above.
Further left is another bay. At the far left is a gabled bay, jettied
forwards at 1st floor level on stone corbels. Towards the front of the
left-hand return wall is a circular turret with conical roof. The range to
the right of the entrance and tower has a gabled projection with a central
buttress which incorporates a 1st floor oriel and is surmounted by a tall
multi-shafted chimney. The porte-cochère has moulded elliptical arches,
corner turrets with finials and angle buttresses, and 2 intersecting pitched
roofs. Inside timber ribs for a skeleton vault. Inside the house is an
entrance hall with a 1st floor gallery with timber front and coving under.
The open timber roof has arch-braced collars and is partly glazed with painted
glass. In an alcove is a fireplace with timber surround and overmantel, with
gothic detail and with ornament incorporating birds: the house was built for
Colonel Bird. Other original fireplaces remain.
