Listing Text

(West Side)
No 141
SE 1616 35/1134
Circa 1830-40. Former offices to Ravensknowle Park, but apparently pre-dating
the present Ravensknowle Hall by a few years. Ashlar. Hipped slate roof.
One storey. Moulded eaves cornice. Blocking course. 3 blocks, linked by
a gateway, forming a U-shaped courtyard. North block has 2 sashes with glazing
bars in moulded surrounds to front, and 2 plus doorway in moulded surrounds
to courtyard. The gateway, at the north end of the west side, is allegedly
the rear entrance of the Cloth Hall, and is therefore probably part of Sir
John William Ramsden's improvements of 1864. Paired blocked Tuscan pilasters
taking full entablature surmounted by achievement of arms and foliage scrolls.
Round arch with moulded Gibbs surround and ornamental cast iron gates. South
of this is a range with 2 doors in moulded surrounds (one a stable door, part
glazed, with glazing bars). South block has 2 doors and 3 sashes with glazing
bars, all in moulded surrounds; and (now obscured by modern garage) 2 windows
in plain raised frames, and one paired window in moulded surround (all with
glazing bars) to front.
