surrounds with paterae ornament throughout. A well-designed house with good
details. Built by the same "distinguished London architect" as Wood Hall,
Burton Constable (qv), also for the Maister family. Stylistic attribution
to Nash, though uncharacteristic details (notably hoods to ground-floor
windows) suggest alterations by another architect, probably local (perhaps
Charles Mountain of Hull). Col R A Alec-Smith, " Winestead", Transactions
