Holme Eden Abbey, Warwick
Holme Eden Abbey, Warwick
Not really, just the extravagant roofline of Neo-Tudor chimneys and turrets. The house is built of attractive red sandstone. All the work of prolific architect John Dobson (with the help of local man James Stewart), 1833-37, for local cotton manufacturer Peter Dixon. Grade II* listed.
Dobson (1787-1865) developed a very large practice, almost exclusively in the north of England from his base in Newcastle. In his Biographical Dictionary of British Architects, Howard Colvin states that Dobson "designed or altered over sixty churches or chapels and more than a hundred country houses". Having returned north after a brief foray to London, he wrote that "with the exception of Mr Bonomi of Durham [he was] the only professional architect between Edinburgh and York".
