GV II

House, now 2 dwellings. Largely C18 and early C19 with possible earlier origins. Flemish bond brick of 2 periods, the earlier with burnt headers; painted local volcanic trap rubble to the rear; slate roof; stacks with brick shafts. Plan: double- depth main range 3 rooms wide with a rear right wing at right angles. The earlier rear range was re-used as the services to a later house: this was built in at least 2 phases, an early C18 phase in the centre, extended or rebuilt in the c. early C19 at both ends. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 8-bay front dividing between the 2 properties as 6:2. Roof with deep coved eaves, hipped at right end, gabled at left. The Old Palace, to the left (west) has a C19 4-panel front door with an overlight in the third bay from the left with a guaged brick flat arch and a shallow, gabled trellis porch. The 2 ground floor windows to the left left and the right hand window have segmental brick arches and are glazed with 16-pane c.early C19 sashes. Blocked first floor window in the fourth bay from the left. 3 left hand first floor similar sashes, the windows with flat arches. The 2 right hand bays of the left hand house have early C18 flush frame 12-pane sashes with thick glazing bars, the ground floor windows with guaged brick arches. The right hand house has a C19 panelled front door and a porch matching the Old Palace, blocked first floor window above; 16-pane early C19 sashes in the right hand bay. The rear elevation has a lower roofline, timber sashes and casements with glazing bars. Interior: Ground floor of the Old Palace only inspected. This retains early C19 features including panelled doors and a marble chimney-piece. The stone rubble rear wall of the main block retains the stub of a right-angled wall: these may have formed part of the Bishop's Palace shown as approximately on this site on a copy of a map associated with a mid C16 terrier.
