GV II

House, now used as old people's home. Probably 1830.
Sandstone with slate roof.
2 storeys. Main house, to left, of ashlar and symmetrical,
with sill band to 1st floor windows, cornice, and blocking
course. 3 bays. Windows are late C20 top-hung casements with
glazing bars, painted brown and replacing glazing bar sashes
but in original openings. On the ground floor are stone canted
bay windows. Outer bays on 1st floor contain paired windows
with central stone mullions.
Stone porch has cornice and blocking course and is carried on
unfluted Greek Doric columns with pilaster responds. To the
right are 3 bays faced with narrow courses of squared stone,
but the details of the dressings suggest that the date may be
similar to that of the main facade.
There is a 1st floor sill blind, and the outer bays contain
paired windows with stone surrounds. On the ground floor are
stone canted bay windows, the right-hand one replacing a
doorway, constructed from re-used stone and having a slated
pitched roof.
The left-hand return wall has a re-used stone door surround
entering a parallel range to the rear. It has a moulded
triangular pediment re-used above plain stone jambs. Its style
suggests a mid C18 date. A central carved inscription is now
indecipherable, but is said to have been 'J L H 1830', a
likely date for the present building which was known as 'New
Hall; and was built by John or James Lodge.
