- II

Original house built 1676-85 by Judge Jeffries. The present house by Benjamin Ferrey, 1860-2, for the 12th Duke of Somerset. Red brick with some diaperwork and stone dressings; slate roof. Two and 3 storeys. Entrance (N) facade: Battlemented tower porch with a tall oriel window and a pyramidal roof flanked by gabled bays, 3 on the left end 2 on the right. Forward of the extreme left gable and with a 2-storeyed pyramidal capped polgonal turret in the corner is a gabled 2-storey 4-bay block and, to the left of this again, is another gabled one-storey 2-bay block. Forward of this yet again is the west side of the Outer Court, entered through a Gothic arch with ducal crest in the gable and flanked by railings. The other 3 sides of this court have an arcade of equal EE piers with shaft rings. At the centre of the east side is a block with 2 gables and a little turret between them. Against the roof of the north side a little pointed polygonal turret. The south side of the Outer Court has a central low gabled block with a little pointed polygonal turret and, on the right, a clock turret with bell above. Through this block access to the Inner Court, a pictorially less lively composition in whose east range, however, there is perhaps something of the earlier building. Garden(s) facade: with a polygonal pointed capped turret on the left and then 7 bays of which Nos 1, 4 and 7 are gabled. At ground level a 6-bay veranda with coupled spirally-fluted columns each with 2 shaft rings. Interiors much remodelled in a neo-Georgian way by F C Eden in late C19/early C20, but the principal staircase of wood is original as is the vaulted and glazed hall with its iron railings and clusters of 4 twisted columns with east-east capitals and shaft rings.
