Glyde House
SE 1632 46/738


Built as a chapel school and named after a popular minister, Jonathan Glyde, who
established the Town Mission. Lockwood and Hawson won its competition, held in
1860, for a chapel and school in Horton Lane. The buildings were completed in
1862 but the chapel has been demolished. The remaining school is a 2 storey
building raised on a podium basement, and designed in a restrained Dutch Jacobean
Renaissance manner. Shaped gabled wings flank a recessed centre screened by a
columned loggia. Pitched face sandstone "bricks" with ashlar dressings. Faceted-block
banded quoin pilasters to ground floor of wings with rusticated quoins above.
Obelisk finials flanking gable copings. The two columns of the loggia have
faceted-blocks to shafts, pierced parapet above. Bold, spaced voussoirs to arches
of ground floor windows. The first floor windows of wings are given a more
Baroque dressing: aedicule surrounds with segmental open pediments and pierced
stone balconettes. Welsh slate roofs and moulded stone eaves. Glyde House is
prominently sited on the hillside at the foot of Little Horton Lane.
