7/45 Boathouse at Keepers
- II

Boathouse and summerhouse formed from an C18 brick farmbuilding, to
which were added ashlar remnants from the demolished body of the C17
Great Moreton Hall, to form an eye catcher. This was further altered
by the addition of a boathouse adjoining one side when the lake was
formed in the C19. Red Flemish bond brick with ashlar dressings and
ashlar with timber framing and a roof of fishscale tiles. Two storeys
with an attic. The lake front has the C19 boathouse to the front,
this has a lower body of ashlar with a pointed archway at centre.
Above this is a row of wooden corbels supporting a jettied gable with
decorative timber framed infill. Pierced bargeboards and moulded
bargepost to apex. To left of this is a further lean-to boathouse
with a lean-to roof. Behind the centre is the brick body of the
earlier farmbuilding which has a hipped roof of slate. The right hand
side has the boathouse at left which has ashlar walling and to right
of this is the brick tower with a C19 leanto of ashlar at ground floor
level incorporating a C17 window of 2 lights with a chamfered ashlar
surround. The left hand side has a canted bay window to first floor
level with a hipped roof supported on a porch with 4-centred arches.
To the rear wall is a 2-light window with chamfered surround. The
rear has a porch of square plan with 4-centred arches at front and
left with a doorway behind. To right of this is a flight of steps
leading to the top of the porch which has a doorway with a 4-centred
massive lintel. At left of the porch is a portion of ashlar walling
with a 2-light window with chamfered surround.
