1. CRAVENGATE 1549 The Temple

NZ 1600 5/62 1.8.52.


2. Circa 1746. Otherwise known as the Culloden Tower, built to commemorate that battle on the site of an earlier pele tower, of which the rectangular base in rubble may be part. This now forms an undercroft, used as a barn, with a cellar below. Above is a two-storeyed tower in ashlar, octagonal, and joined to the rectangular base by broaches. Pointed windows to alternate faces of the second storey and a blind arcade of three moulded pointed arches to each face between the storeys, which are also divided by bands. The top storey has alternate blind and windowed openings and a parapet of a kind of strap-work with crocketed pinnacles at the angles. These are mostly damaged, but otherwise the building is in a remarkably good state of repair. A stair turret with a small domed cap is at the South-West corner, ornamented similarly to the tower. The interior has two rooms, one to each storey, with a wealth of moulded wood ornament combining Gothic decoration with some classical details. The windows, and cupboards corresponding with them in the blank walls between, have ogee crocketed heads and labels, and the doorcases and fireplaces have panels of ornament above with a similar finish. The mantelpieces, however, have friezes and cornices, and a central mask, in elaborate carved wood. The dado-rails are of key pattern, the skirting and frieze of moulded. The ceilings are domed, with Gothic ribs with cusping. Entrance door has good stone case with flat pilasters with acanthus capitals and a shaped pediment with a cartouche of arms.
