Type and Period (4)
The Glen Residential Nursery was built as an isolated detached house in the last decade before 1850. On the OS map of 1852 it is called Glen Heworth and is shown surrounded by extensive grounds. Later in the 19th century it was enlarged to double its original size. The house was designed in a picturesque Tudor style featuring many gables with boldly projecting barge boards, the principal ones shaped and pierced, and chimneystacks of various designs; one of the stacks had three separate octagonal shafts with moulded brick bases and tops. Demolished.
