II GV

2. Circa 1820 large house standing back in garden, but approached from South Street. Hipped slate roof. 2 storey 4 sash windows, with glazing bars, to garden front. Cornice. Parapet. Stone wall at south end of garden abuts on public walk overlooking valley and is in the same style as the Town Mills and probably mid C19. A projecting tower in the centre has pointed door opening and sunk rectangular and circular panels above. Walls on each side of this have sunk cruciform panels. Castellated parapets. Behind the wall is a vaulted outhouse and a flight of steps to garden level. The design of the walls was probably inspired by the proximity of the Castle site. It is an attractive feature giving interest to the public walk and to views of the town from this side.

All the listed buildings in South Street form a group.
