3/30 Minaret, boundary walls and
gate piers to north of Hope
15.5.75 End Hotel


Minaret, boundary walls and gate piers. 1810-1820 probably by LC Loudon for
and in collaboration with E Moulton-Barrett. Minaret: render on brick core.
2 stages consisting of a column and echinus under a band supporting a thinner
column with a conical cap above which are 3 diminishing copper spheres topped
by a crescent. 2 columnar turrets act as gate piers roughly opposite. Boundary
walls in rubble and brick connect with minaret and gate pier turrets with the
former stable block (qv) and describe a loop to form a yard. Elizabeth Barrett-
Browning lived here from 1809-10 when she was 3 until her father E Moulton-
Barrett sold Hope End in 1832. He had made a fortune from his plantations in
Jamaica but was forced to-sell Hope End but dot before its eccentric Moorish
atmosphere influenced his daughter in eg, The Lost Bower. The house lay
immediately south east and was demolished in the 1870s. Its landscape setting
more certainly London's than the house itself was probably influenced by
Moulton-Barrett's intimacy with Uvedale Price at nearby Foxley and hence with
Picturesque. Group value with Hope End Hotel, stableyard gateway, boundary wall
and offices (qv) (CL, 19th September 1968).
