    Intro

    After seeing asterisk's interesting post on the interesting selection of buildings next door, we had a little wander around the area to see what was going on. Interesting post either way but to be honest I always wondered why it was named after a hall when we couldn't really see any kind of older architecture inside the perimeter fence. Then of course our attention turned to this and we found this to be a lot of fun.

    History

    As described by developers:

    "Estimated 20th Century origin; three storey building; rendered and painted façade; exposed timbers to the first floor; gable roof with intersecting gables; decorative ridge tiles; several chimney stacks; predominately flat roofed dormers; yellow brick with red brick detailing to the ground floor; flat roofed entrance porch with parapet; white surround around front door.
    This building is adjacent to Bullwood Hall prison. The Bullwood Estate was built on land sold in “1894 … [by] Mr. Offin of Turrett House, Hockley” (Vingoe, 1999:79). This building is of local importance and is considered to merit inclusion on the revised list."

    It is being retained for use as 3 separate flats. The house society dealing with the Bullwood area will sell these individually. The floor plan is as shown:
