with. slate roofs and C20 brick stacks. L-plan, formed by 3-storey round tower
with 2-storey blocks to right and rear. Tower has large cross-shaped rendered

is an oculus and to left and right, at ground and first floor level, are 2-light
windows with stone flat-arched heads and C20 casements. Conical roof, topped by
small railed viewing platform and central chimney. Block to right probably an
addition, has a blocked door, now window, to left (porch removed) and 3-light
windows to right of ground floor and to first floor, all with segmental gauged
stone heads and C20 casements. End stack, then a low link to barn to right of

Interior: altered and original stair removed. Built for Arbuthnot family of nearby
Woodford House (qv), after a visit by the Duke of Wellington who apparently
mentioned that the countryside reminded him of the land around Waterloo. The film

Kinematography Company (1913) was made at this site.
