ARTHURET NETHERBY Coop House, west of Netherby Hall

(Formerly listed as Coop House, north-west of Netherby Hall)

II* Folly tower, formerly keeper's house for the salmon coops for Netherby Hall. Probably mid C18 for Rev. Robert Graham, with early C19 additions for Sir James Graham. Red sandstone rubble walls on chamfered plinth, flush quoins, string course and battlemented parapet. Two storeys, three bays. Central recessed bay is single storey; pointed-arch doorway with hood mould; cruciform openings, battlemented parapet. C19 flanking towers have cross-mullioned blocked windows; similar two-light mullioned windows above. Single-light windows to rear.

Built on the river bank and all that remains of the salmon coops. Thought to have been influenced by the gatehouse of Wetheral Priory and the salmon coops belonging to that Priory. The Rev. Robert Graham consulted Mr Howard of Corby Castle on the laying out of the landscape garden at Netherby. See Country Life, 14 January 1954 p.92.
