SK5639 : The Tower House, Park Row, Nottingham

taken 4 months ago, near to Nottingham, Great Britain

The Tower House, Park Row, Nottingham
The Tower House, Park Row, Nottingham
The basic house dates from c.1830, probably designed by PF Robinson and built by William Paterson for the fourth Duke of Newcastle as part of his early 19th century development of the Park Estate. Altered c.1860 by Thomas Hine, and c.1880 by Watson Fothergill. Listed Grade II. The whole of the tower appears to be by Fothergill. Although he did not normally work with stucco, the top storey is clearly in his idiom, as is the oriel window and the front door LinkExternal link . Hine's work is not obviously defined.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
