Grade 2 * listed building, Burton Closes Drive.
Country house, now residential home for the elderly.The earliest part was designed as a summer residence,and built c1845-48 for John Allcard,a banker and stockbroker, to a design by Paxton and Robertson.
A moderate sized ,2 storey hall, with interiors by Pugin et al,"a virtual epitome of Early Victorian visual taste" as Pevsner described it, the building was transformed c 1856-58 by T.D.Barry, of Liverpool, a work which involved some dismantling and rebuilding.. There were more additions in 1888.. Some demolition began in 1949, and parts of the interior were stripped. The building became flats, and then a residential home.

Listed Buildings :: SK2168

A listed building in the UK is one which is on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.
A listed building may not be demolished, extended or altered without special permission from the local planning authority (who typically consult the relevant central government agency, particularly for significant alterations to the more notable listed buildings).
For a building to be included on the list, it must be a man-made structure that survives in something at least approaching its original state. Most structures on the list are buildings, but other structures such as bridges, monuments, sculptures, war memorials, and even milestones and mileposts may also be listed. Some structures can also be classified as Scheduled Ancient Monuments rather than Listed Buildings.
