bars. 2 Italianate towers with modillioned cornices and arched lights taking
flues. Long and short brick quoins. Elaborate wooden oriels in mid-C17 manner,

All Blore's work at Marlborough College is remarkable for its date in using a
Cl7 style: the use of this style is common in the 1870's, but not in the 1840's.
Only the Italianate towers are typical of the 1840's.
