SD47NW LINDALE ROAD 705-1/2/25 (North side (off)) 02/05/75 Two follies in wooded cliff, above and belonging to Netherwood Hotel


Two outbuildings, now houses. Probably mid C19. Originally part of a group of garden buildings which included a gardener's cottage, greenhouses, and a tool-shed. Now converted into houses, with original openings retained and with extensions in keeping. Limestone rubble with rough-cut limestone dressings and slate roofs behind embattled parapets.

The western building includes a window facing south which has a fixed light with glazing bars and intersecting glazing in its triangular head. To the left is a corbelled round corner turret. An embattled terrace wall forms a link with the eastern building, which has 1st-floor window openings with triangular heads, and a corbelled embattled parapet which steps up towards the centre and at the sides. HISTORY: Netherwood (now the Netherwood Hotel, (qv)) was built in 1893 on the site of Blawith Cottage, which was built c1800 and may have been by Francis Webster. Although the garden buildings appear to date from before 1893 they are not shown on the 1st edition of the Six Inch Ordnance Survey Map, which was surveyed in the late 1840s.
