Garden folly south-east of Nabb's House, at junction with Nabb's Way



Probably c.1835. Stone. Sited at the apex of the triangular garden, terminating
the short vista from the house and backing on Brandlesholme Road and the converging,
minor, Nabb's Way. Gothic in style, having the character of miniature castle on the
rear, road sides and that of bare ruined choir on the front facing the house. Front
symmetrically arcaded with narrow Gothic arches. Twin circular turrets behind. Rusticated walls of one-storey height to three sides of rectangular rear, with various
pseudo-primitive carved heads and figures. Miniature arcaded covered way extends
from left side along Nabb's Way and path. Of similar character to Tottington Dungeon.
