- II

House. C17, refronted mid- to late C18 with alterations and extensions of
1902 by Ernest Newton for Richard Biddulph Martin. Part limestone ashlar,
part rubble and plain tiled roof with gable-end parapets and two large rear
brick stacks with three square shafts. Three storeys with band at first
floor level and chamfered plinth. Three bays with chamfered end quoins.
Windows in outer bays of ground and first floors have 12-pane sashes and
the second floor windows are blind. The upper floors of the central bay
have a long round-headed stair window which has a raised moulding above the
arched head on imposts and a multi-paned sash window with traceried head.
The central entrance has a moulded flat canopy on console brackets, a door
with six raised panels and a traceried fanlight. Adjoining the right side
elevation and projecting to the front of the main building is a c1902 addition.
Ashlar with hipped plain tiled roof and right end brick stack. Two storeys
with band at first floor level and two bays with chamfered end quoins. Windows
are all 12-pane sashes; the first floor windows of the front elevation and the
ground floor window in the angle with the main house are blind. To the rear
of the main house are two parallel wings of the original C17 house. The roofs
of both wings have been raised, probably c1902. Interior: the main C18 part
retains its limestone flags and its dog-leg staircase which has turned balusters
to the first floor and c1902 decorative openwork panels replacing the former
balustrading to the second floor [cf the staircase at Sunny Bank Cottage (qv)
and the gates and The Red House and flanking gateways (qv)]. (Newton, W G:
The Life and Work of Ernest Newton, London 1925).
