II Substantial Victorian mock Gothic castle with turret, towers and battlements, gatehouse and stable block. Mid C19. Dressed stone and rubblestone, stone slate roofs. Front facade reads from right: three storey square embattled tower with two arch-headed windows and lancets. Main two storey range has three large arch-headed windows with four slightly shorter windows over, all with rusticated sills. String course continues round three storey turret with false staircase lancets next to five storey tower with lancets on each floor. Over entrance to rear courtyard is three storey tower with lancets and machicolation; all are embattled. To left a stable block with rusticated battlements and arch-headed doorways and windows to stalls for shire horses. An embattled tower with machicolation balances the facade at the end. Rear forms intimate courtyard with outbuildings.

Built by the Shaw family, millowners of Holywell Green and of remarkable similarity to the towers in Shaw Park (q.v.). It housed the bailiff who bred the shire horses for Brookroyd Mills and was latterly known as Redman's, the name of the bailiff to the Shaw Estate.
