II*
Former folly or hunting lodge. Probably early to mid C18; altered. Red brick in Flemish bond, with cement render dressings, stone slate roof. Double-depth rectangular plan on north-east/south-west axis. Gothick style.

Two storeys and three bays, symmetrical, with high stepped and embattled gable parapets giving a striking outline. The south-east facade has a broad cement-rendered band, a saw-tooth band to a deep moulded brick cornice, a giant two-centred rendered blank arch in the centre with intersecting arched and curvilinear tracery on two levels, similarly rendered two-centred blank arches at ground floor of the flanking bays and rendered blind oculi above, with quadrant tracery. All this tracery is square in section and bold and coarse in treatment. The north-west facade is similar. (Former central chimney stack now collapsed.) The two-bay gable walls have pilasters, deep cornices like the front and rear, and tall embattled parapets; the north-east has two giant rendered arches, and the south west has a doorway at ground floor flanked by eils-de-boeuf, and rendered arches at first floor.

INTERIOR: has small rooms and beams with run-out chamfer.

HISTORY: associated with former Cross Hall and with former kennels for hounds nearby.
