6/85 Whitfield
(formerly listed as
29.9.52 Whitfield House)


House. C17 origins, enlarged in late C18 and altered in mid-C19. Brick
with stone dressings, Welsh slate and asphalt roofs. Roughly square plan
with main fronts to north and south. Cellars and three storeys. South
elevation has 3:1:3 windows, glazing bar sashes with stone dressings, full-
height three-window bows to each side, continuous moulded stone cornice and
moulded stone string between second and top floors, central entry with four
panelled pilasters supporting entablature above which are the arms of
Henrietta Archer, wife of Edward Clive, glazed door with transom light.
North elevation has closed-well mid-C19 stone staircase to central entry.
Interior has mid-C18 brown and white marble fireplace in principal south-
west room of ground floor and Italian white marble fireplace, possibly mid-
C19, to corresponding room to south-east; late C19 oak dog-leg staircase
leads to Rurdbogenstyl oak gallery with three round-headed openings to
each side supported by piers and attached columns reminiscent of those of
c1600 in barn to north (qv) which lies in Abbey Dore CP. Third floor was
added in mid- to late C19. The house was reduced c1949-53 when mid-C19
additions were demolished; at about the same time the external closed-well
staircase was moved to the north front. The Clive family moved here from
Wormbridge Court, Herefordshire in the 1790s. (BoE, p 319-20; information
