16/199 Hawkstone Park
- Hotel (Formerly
listed as Hawkstone
28.10.60 Hotel including
gate piers at sides)

- II
Inn, now hotel. Circa 1790 for Sir Richard Hill with considerable
later additions and alterations. Rendered brick; hipped slate roof
with ridge and end stacks. Original main block of 2:3:2 bays, centre
section forming slight pedimented break, with flanking service wings;
extensive C19 and C20 additions to front, rear and right including prominent
late C20 flat-roofed 2-storey projection of 7 bays to front of main
block. 3 storeys with 2-storey service wings; glazing bar sashes
visible to second floor of main block with Hill family coat-of-arms
above centre window. One-bay service wings have Venetian window on
ground floor and Diocletian window on first floor, Venetian window
of right wing mutilated and that to left wing removed when C20 addition
built to front. Interior: much altered late C20 but retains part of
late C18 staircase with several balusters replaced; ceiling friezes
to C19 additions largely concealed by late C20 polystyrene tiles.
Re-set late C18 gate piers, approximately 80m to east of main front,
with entablature dismantled and removed to side of road,are not included
in this list. Although considerably altered,especially in late C20,
the hotel has the historic interest of having been built to accommodate
early visitors to Hawkstone Park. C20 additions are not of special
architectural interest. B.0.E. p.312; C.L. (June 10, 1958) p.72.
