GV II*

Clock tower. 1883-84 by J P St Aubyn for John Joseph Jones of Abberley Hall (qv). Coursed and squared rubble, red to the lower part and buff ashlar to the upper part, battered, distressed ashlar plinth and quoins, freestone dressings. In a fantastic mixture of C13 and C14 Gothic styles. 3 main stages and bell stage with spire. The lowest stage has a moulded, pointed doorway and a large, round hoodmould which continues around as a band over the plinth: panel of arms over the door and single plain light window above: plan, paired and single round-head lights to intermediate levels at sides. 1:2:1 light oriel windows corbelled out on second stage with transoms and trefoil heads to each light: sundial over and plain pointed lights above. The third stage is further corbelled out and supported on brackets; octagonal corner turrets with blank arcaded upper part surmounted by spirelets; clock face to each side with straight, crocketted and enriched hoodmould; paired trefoil headed lights above. Bracketed cornice and parapet with gar- goyles, behind which is set the octagonal bell chamber stage with 2-light mullion and transom lights under gablets alternating with single lights all with trefoil heads. Squat spire with lucarnes and quatrefoils in alternate bays. Semi-circular stair-tower attached to lower stages of right-hand eleva- tion. Of high landscape and picturesque value. (BoE, 1968).
