07/08/52 St Edmund Hospital & Nursing Home
(Formerly Listed as:
ST MARY'S SQUARE
Square House Hotel)
House, later an hotel, now a private hospital and nursing
home. Early to mid C18, extended and altered in the early C19.
Red brick with a slate roof and wide paired modillion eaves
cornice to the main house; a small C18 range on the east side
has plaintiled roof and a wood modillion cornice.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellars. 7 window range on the north:
all narrow 8-pane sashes in flush cased frames with flat
gauged arches, on the right with a wider spacing between the
5th and 6th windows indicating an alteration or extension. A
raised brick band between each of the storeys.
A heavy central Ionic porch projects before an 8-panel door
with 2 panels glazed. The south side includes part of an
earlier wing which projects slightly on the south east side.
In its east wall are 2 late C17/early C18 sash windows, each
with 18 small panes and heavy ovolo-moulded glazing-bars. 7
sash windows to each storey on the south front, varying in
size, but all small-paned and different from those on the
front. The 4 windows on the ground and 1st storeys in the
western half are 15-pane, long and narrow in flush cased
INTERIOR: cellars, part C19 brick-lined with wine bins, but
part with flint and old render, possibly medieval. The house
has a mixture of C18 and early C19 features and evidence of
changes of layout: the present entrance hall has a fine
free-standing early C19 geometric stair, with stick balusters,
open strings and curved and wreathed handrails, but it also
contains an older fireplace.
The windows on the north side have internal shutters with sunk
panels; 6-panel doors have panelled reveals. Changes of level
on the upper storey.
