1. SOUTH STREET
1735 (South Side)
Castle Hill House
including Garden Wall
SS 4919 1/75
SS 4918 4/75 19.5.51.
Circa 1820 large house standing back in garden, but approached from South
Street. Hipped slate roof. 2 storey 4 sash windows, with glazing bars,
to garden front. Cornice. Parapet. Stone wall at south end of garden
abuts on public walk overlooking valley and is in the same style as the
Town Mills and probably mid C19. A projecting tower in the centre has
pointed door opening and sunk rectangular and circular panels above. Walls
on each side of this have sunk cruciform panels. Castellated parapets.
Behind the wall is a vaulted outhouse and a flight of steps to garden level.
The design of the walls was probably inspired by the proximity of the Castle
site. It is an attractive feature giving interest to the public walk and
to views of the town from this side.
All the listed buildings in South Street form a group.
