Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

A converted late 19th century subsidiary building to a now demolished farm group, which includes a fine and relatively rare example of a 17th century archway. Possibly the pedestrian part of a double arch, or possibly repositioned from elsewhere. It is a nine-block granite arch with shouldered springer stones, chamfered and moulded architrave, and carved keystone.

There is a coursed granite roadside wall, dropping where it passes a stream, with iron railings as clairvoyee for views from the road. In the garden a 19th century hand-made brick wall borders a stream - with twisted brick plinths and grotto-type niches decorated with shells and glass, including a 19th century statue, brick duck house and single-span bridge. Links to the site of La Chapelle de St Etienne.
