Lower Summer House
House, probably mid C17. Large dressed stone with stone slate roof. Two storeys.
The plan appears to have consisted of one large room, at the east end, and 2 next to
it. The south front has a string which forms a hoodmould over the 3 ground floor
windows, which are double chamfered and all formerly had transoms; now of 2, 3 and
1 light they were originally of 8, 12 and 4 lights. The first floor windows are of 3
and 4-lights and are also double chamfered. At the rear there are similar windows of
3, 2 and 3 lights to the ground floor and 2 of 3-lights above. In the east gable
there is a blocked chamfered doorway with Tudor head; in the west gable are 2 large
chimneybreasts which merge at the ridge into a single stack. One of these is now
largely concealed by an extension which buts into one of the rear windows, but has a
3-light chamfered stone mullion at the first floor.
Inside the larger room has been partitioned. It now hs a square stone fireplace but
the beams above it are pieced, suggesting a larger predecessor. The smaller rooms
have Tudor arched doorways from the main room. The northern room has a small
fireplace of the same shape, and another is to be found in the southern room on the
