House. 1923 for Sir James Morton, by Sir Robert Lorimer
(builder Laings) with later extensions. Painted wet-dashed
walls on brick plinth. Main house has a hipped clay tiled roof
with swept eaves; mid brick chimney stacks; the wing has a
flat roof on 2 levels hidden by a solid parapet.
Main house is 2 storeys, 4 bays with a lower single-storey
wing of 2 bays in a rough L-shape. Built on corner of St James
Road and Empire Road. Casement glazed door at internal angle
of `L', facing St James Road, with casement to right and 2
above; wing has small "porthole" and large 5-light window
subdivided vertically by segment-headed arcade. Symmetrical
elevation to Empire Road has 2 full-height, recessed, canted
bays with hung tiles between floors; similar bay to rear.
Windows (except wing) small-paned casements.
INTERIOR not seen, but well documented: cherrywood panelling
to entrance hall and reception room; similar panelling to
first floor room which has inglenook fireplace (incorporating
cupboards and shelves) and coved plaster ceiling with ornate
bird and animal decoration. Oak staircase is decoratively
carved in the Voysey manner.
Its name comes from the use of the house between Tuesday and
Thursday, the owner going home at weekends - see J Morton
(1971) and Christopher Hussey (1931). An undated plan is in
Cumbria County Record Office, DB/6/2/269.
