ELLESMERE RURAL C.P. OTELEY T-shaped outbuilding approx. 10m east of Swiss Cottage GV II

Outbuilding. Circa 1826 to 1842 for Charles Kynaston Mainwaring with later additions and alterations. Red brick; rusticated sandstone ashlar to tower and rear; lean-to slate roofs with fishscale bands to pyramidal roof of tower. T-plan. Single storey with corbelled eaves cornice to tower. Left range has segmental-headed cast-iron window to front and similar narrower window to projecting range with triangular pointed window to right return. Right range has late C19 casement to left, C20 casement to centre and boarded door to right; stone stack in roof slope to centre. Tower, projecting to rear, has doorway with shouldered lintel and latticed oriel above with shouldered lintel. Triangular pointed doorway to right on first floor. Gabled lucarnes and pointed finial to pyramidal roof. Charles Kynaston Mainwaring was a keen amateur gardener and he travelled extensively on the continent. It is believed that he was personally responsible for much of the design of the garden at Oteley and for the features therein. His house, Oteley Park, built for him in an Elizabethan style on the site of an earlier building between 1826 and 1830 and extended in 1842 was demolished c.1960.
