Miller (p277) notes "... W. N. W. Hewett, Esq. who has lately, at some distance from his mansion, erected an elegant small structure called Bel-vedere or Belle Vue, which commands, perhaps, the most extensive, but certainly the richest prospect of any place in the West-Riding of Yorkshire".

Designs for the building exhibited by Rawstorne at the Royal Academy in 1800 (Colvin), p673). Colvin wrongly states that the building is,demolished.
