ROSSINGTON GREAT NORTH ROAD Rossington Hall and attached quadrant wall on south-east side

(Formerly listed under BAWTRY ROAD, (west side, off))

GV II Large house, later a school (1953-2008), opened as a hotel in 2012. Dated 1882, altered C20. By W.M. Teulon for James Brown Jnr (d.1877); finally executed for his nephew R.J. Streatfield. Red brick in English bond with moulded ashlar dressings; Welsh slate roof. Three storeys with attics, five by five bays; attached quadrant wall encloses small garden on right return (south-east side). In Jacobethan style.

Entrance front: nearly symmetrical; outer bays have two-storey flat-roofed projections and are linked by a one storey ashlar-faced lobby having central double door and overlight flanked by pilasters; to each side are two pairs of sashes with overlights divided by pilasters; cornice beneath pierced parapet with dies over each pilaster having urns and pedimented plaque over door. Projections to bays one and five each have moulded plinth, octagonal corner piers and French window with plain fanlight flanked by blind ashlar panels and by tall transomed lights beneath a cornice; quoined first-floor windows in same style; cornice beneath pierced ashlar parapet with octagonal corner piers. Central bays over lobby are divided by pilasters; tripartite central window with round-headed centre-light; bay two and three have transomed two-light windows.

Second floor: string course beneath superimposed order of pilasters flanking the central bay which has tripartite window beneath pedimented cornice; bays two and four have windows as first floor but with cornices; bays one and five are flanked by semi-octagonal brick piers and have French windows with transomed side-lights in quoined and corniced surrounds. Arcaded parapet terminates at shaped gables set over the end bays; each gable having corbelling beneath blind arcading; a corner stack rises to right of bay five. Hipped roof with stacks to front slope on right of bay one, to ridge on right of bay three and to side ridges set to rear; the stacks have ashlar shoulders and panelled sides with keystones beneath decorative, coved cornices. Set back on right and attached to rear-right corner of house is a quadrant wall with moulded plinth and with intermediate piers linked by a cresting of paired, inverted round arches; tall corniced end piers with ball finials. Near junction with house is a moulded-arched doorway with cornice; at other end is a spur wall with smaller, ball-finialled end pier.

Left return: asymetrical, articulated facade with octagonal corner piers corbelled from first floor level. Near central projection with elaborate two storey porch on its right having doorway with keyed archivolt flanked by banded ashlar piers supporting inverted consoles; part-fluted angle pilasters to first floor flank a quoined three-light window beneath round-headed gable with arms and date 1882.

Right return: two storey projection to bay one; three storey projection to bay five; generally detailed as front with French windows to bays one, three and four.

Interior: entrance hall has marble Ionic columns and alabaster pilasters; imperial stair with turned balusters and ball-finialled newels; panelled dado, corniced doorcases and modillioned ceiling cornice. Room off corridor to left has panelled oak dado and corniced doorcase; ceiling with moulded ribbing and rosettes. Oak dog-leg stair, off same corridor, has twisted balusters infilled with panels pierced by crosses; ball-finialled newels. C20 additions to rear and fire escape on entrance front are not of special interest.

James Brown, a Leeds woollen manufacturer, purchased the Rossington estate in 1838 and by 1855 had engaged Teulon to draft a scheme to extend the existing Georgian house in the Gothic Revival style. Presumably the scheme was never executed as Teulon was engaged by James Brown Jnr to design the present structure on a cleared site.
