Statement of Interest

This building retains significant architectural interest despite the demolition of an earlier part (shown on the first Ordnance Survey map). There are stylistic similarities with the White House Lodge, and Parish Church Hall at Lamlash. The use of terracotta tiles was inspired by the work of W E Nesfield and the Aesthetic Movement.
