1825. Built as the Manse for The Point-in-View, and repeating some of the
stylistic features of the latter. Stucco facade with hipped tiled roof. End
chimneys. 2½ storeys. The front elevation has a symmetrical design, sashes
with diagonal latticed glazing. Flank diamond-shaped first floor window. Centre
porch. The Manse faces the Chapel and Almshouses of The Point in View (each
surrounded by a garden) within the same small field.
The Point-in-View of the Misses Parminter who built the main building in 1811
was to help Jewish converts to Christianity (and they were to be preferred to
others as pupils and teacher ). Trees on the estate were not to be cut down;
"till Israel returns and is restored to the Land of Promise".

The whole complex is thus of major significance, not only architecturally but
also historically and as a socially innovative group.
