TIDENHAM B4228, WOODCROFT
ST 59 NW
(west side)
9/221 Pen Moel
- II
Large Victorian mansion in own grounds. Panel over porch records 'rebuilt 1890'.
Snecked sandstone with ashlar dressings, some timber framing, plain tile roof with
various stacks, but especially prominent main stack to left of contral gabled
unit . A generously organised composition in picturesque composition reminiscent
of some Norman Shaw work, the building runs extensively east and west under a sand-
stone crag, has open 4-bay verandah, left, and a vigorous 5-storey gabled entrance
unit with fine glazed conservatory over open entrance porch with octagonal piers
and very flat ogee-headed arches. Left of this is a second lower gabled unit.
Rich variety of fenestration mostly 2 or 3-light casements with transomes. To right
is an octagonal turret with conical roof, and the return gable, far left, has deep
projecting eaves over full-height canted bay. Main entrance a good 6-panel door
in basket handle arch, flanked by niches similarly headed. Panel containing date,
over porch, also incorporates initials PM (or MP). Interior not inspected, but
reputed to contain original staircase and panelling. A good example of the fertile
imagination and sensitivity to the site of late Victorian designers.
