5/241 Dam at south end of Lake


Dam. c.1760. For Daniel Lascelles, probably by John Carr. Coursed gritstone with extensive rock-faced rustication. Approximately 70 metres long, 5 metres high and 6 metres wide. Symmetrical south-facing facade composed of: central round arched recess flanked by (in order) - large buttress, walling (with iron valve to left), buttress, wall with circular recess, buttress, walling and outer buttress. Remains of low parapet with flat coping. The arched recesses have projecting keystones and voussoirs; buttresses have heavy banded rustication, the outer pair with large banded ball finials. Several stone-lined channels carry water away from the south side of the dam and much of the parapet, including at least one ball finial, has fallen down into this area. The dam is thickly overgrown with creepers and trees. John Carr submitted a design for the dam head in 1755 and although it is claimed that it was never built (Wragg p15) the extant remains are very similar to it.
