SJ41SE ASHTON ROAD 653-1/4/82 (North West side) Shrewsbury School, Rigg's Hall
School house, c1882-4. William White of Wimpole Street. Simple domestic Gothic style. Brick with plain tiled roofs with ridge cresting. 2 and 3 storeys, with parallel rear range and rear wings. Irregularly fenestrated. Entrance to left in angle with advanced rear range, in lean-to porch carried on raking timber struts. 2-storeyed 4-window range beyond, with full-height canted bay windows with hipped tiled roofs, tiled aprons and mullioned and transomed lights. Front and end wall stacks with star shaped flues. 3-storey 2-window range advanced beyond, with wood mullioned and transomed windows, with brick arched heads to ground and first floor, hipped dormers in attic storey. End wall stacks. A carefully articulated and early essay in the Domestic Revival Manner, both by one of the principal architects of the Victorian period and also significant as part of a good group of buildings commissioned by Shrewsbury School in the late C19.
