1728, late C18 early C19, late C19. The site of a medieval palace of the Bishop
of Bath and Wells, the older unit probably began as an Elizabethan house; there
is a large rectangular block facing the north east, and a late C18, early C19
wing, behind the west end forms with the earlier end elevation the second main
(north-west) front. Attached to the south east of this L-shape is a Victorian
structure,making an interior courtyard, now enclosed on its south east side by
a modern chapel. The north east front is a symmetrical 3-storeyed facade of
5:3:5 windows. Walling is in red brick (Flemish bond) with a plain stone coping
to a parapet, a moulded stone cornice which breaks into a pediment above the
slightly-projecting centrepiece, with an oval cartouche. Projecting brick bands
at 1st and 2nd floors, a plinth, flat rubbed arches and stone cills. Sash
windows, some with exposed frames, others in reveals: the 3rd and 4th on the
north side (lst floor) are French windows leading on to a stone balcony on 4
brackets and with wrought iron rails. The second bay from each end comprises
a stone niche on the 1st and 2nd floors, the lower containing a carved stone
female figure and the upper an urn. Seven carved urns surmount the parapet.
The central doorway (late C18) is in a fine white stone and has an architrave
(surrounding double doors), pilasters and a pediment in a Tuscan order. The
north west front is asymmetrical, with a 2 storeyed 'centrepiece' of 3 windows,
projecting slightly, having a pediment containing a carved stone coat of arms,
full mouldings and moulded stone cornices above the ground floor windows. To
the north the 3-storeyed design has 1:3:1 windows: to the south the 2-storeyed
arrangement continues from the centre with 3:1 windows. Walling is red brick,
with a projecting 1st floor band at the centre and to the south, rubbed flat
arches, stone cills, plinth, and decorative stone cheeks to two sets of 3 steps,
giving access to French windows at the centrepiece and in the centre of the
northern half. The southern flank of this front has 2:3 storeys with 1:1:2
windows. The eastern flank of the north east front is of 3 storeys, with set
back parts, of 3:1:0:1 windows: the 3 windows of the ground floor infill a former
3 arch colonnade. Good interiors; sumptious plasterwork, fireplaces. The chapel
contains a set of stations of the Cross sculpture, by Eric- Gill.
