for Charles Madryll Cheere (d.1825), altered in 1860-96 by E.T.
Hooley. Stuccoed brick with moulded stone and limestone
dressings. Low pitched hipped slated roofs; two symmetrical
stacks and rear stacks. West main entrance facade of five
'bays'. Plinth; shallow parapet with deep cornice. Pedimented
portico with four giant unfluted Ionic columns. Double,
three-panelled doors with patterned cast iron glazing bars and
projecting lantern, flanked by two recessed twelve-paned hung
sash windows and with three similar first floor windows. Ground

pedimented in blind segmental arches; two twelve-paned first
floor hung sash windows with moulded stone architraves. South
