Details

FELTON FELTON PARK NU 1800 12/105 Greenhouse 120 metres east of 31/12/69 Felton Park, with potting shed at rear GV II*

Greenhouse. c.1830, incorporating C18 garden wall. Garden wall brick with stone dressings; greenhouse cast-iron and glass on ashlar base with brick plinth to east part; potting shed brick with felted roof.

Greenhouse has low 30-bay front wall with boldly-convex pent roof; all glazing in vertical panels with fishscale pieces of opaque glass; permanent iron ladder at centre. Upper wall behind has 2 rows of 9 grilled vents. Left return shows vertical strips of small square panes and half-glazed iron door with fishscale glazing. Right return has inserted boarded double door.

Rear elevation: pent-roofed potting shed with five 12-pane Yorkshire sash windows and boarded door on each return.

Interior: Greenhouse has central division wall and door as on left return. Each part has 4-bay axial arcade of slender iron columns. Plastered rear wall has vents at roof level closed by pivoting iron shutters with counterweight mechanism.

Notes: the brick plinth suggests that the east half of the greenhouse is slightly older, although both parts are otherwise indentical. It is similar in form to the 1825 conservatory of Beetham, by Webster of Kendal. An unusually early and well-preserved example.
