House, now attached pair. 1858. Pennant rubble with limestone dressings, roof not visible. Picturesque Gothic Revival style. Irregular double-depth plan. 2 storeys, basement and attic; 8-window range. An asymmetrical composition with scattered fenestration to a left-hand octagonal tower and right-hand round one, with flanking walls. The entrance to No.6 in the parapeted right-hand screen wall has a wide 2-centred arched doorway, 2-leaf door and mullion overlight; the large round tower has a central doorway, a drip with small heads, and corbel table below a tall crenellated parapet; windows have flat arches and metal casements. The entrance to No.5 is in the 3-storey octagonal tower, and is set in a battered wall with a bracketed 2-centre arch to a 2-leaf door with scrolled strap hinges, below an angled 2-light oriel, drip and tall crenellated parapet; windows have shallow 2-centre arch lintels and plate-glass sashes. The left corner has a slender octagonal machicolated and crenellated turret. INTERIOR: few period details survive; C20 panelling and dogleg stairs. The design was originally a romantic counterpart to Cook's Folly, built by John Cook as a prospect tower in 1696, and visible in many topographical views of the Avon Gorge. It was removed in 1892.
