Norris Castle Farm, the Bailiff's House, Two Cottages and Kitchen Garden Wall, Newbarn Road, East Cowes - Isle of Wight (UA)

Model Farm designed by James Wyatt around 1800. It includes farm buildings, Bailiff's house, cottages, walled garden and glass houses all contained within a rectangular plan surrounded by high castellated walls with corner towers. The walls are mainly built of rubble stonework with Welsh slate roofs to the buildings. At risk due to lack of long-term maintenance, leaking roofs, defective rainwater disposal and vegetation growth. Proposal for repair and re-use are awaited from the owner. Some emergency repairs carried out.
