Former base of smock windmill, converted 1805-20 to Picturesque cottage for
John 6th Duke of Bedford. Formerly known as Windmill Cottage. Coursed
ironstone with some repairs in brick, the whole colourwashed. Pyramidal clay
tile roof, some fishscale tiles. One storey and attics, octagonal plan. SE
elevation has part-glazed door in cambered-headed opening. Some way above
this is 3-centred arch with projecting keystone, the brickwork beneath it
indicating that the arch was probably open prior to conversion. Other
elevations have round-arched recesses with projecting keystones, one blind,
others containing casements with glazing bars. SW and NE elevations have semi-
circular eyebrown dormers containing casement windows. Central brick chimney
stack. Early C20 single storeyed slate roofed addition to NE elevation.
Included as an architectural curiosity.
