NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Brief History.


The Folly known as The Images was build probably c. 1835 by John Turner. Sited at the apex of the triangular garden, terminating the short vista from the house and backing on Brandlesholme Road and the converging minor, Nabbs Way. Gothic in style, having the character of miniature castle on the rear, road sides and that of bare ruined choir on the front facing the house. Front symmetrically arcaded with narrow Gothic arches. Twin circular turrets behind. Rusticated walls of one storey height to three sides of rectangular rear. (Extract from SD 71 SE 5/5.) This castle-like summerhouse has numerous gargoyles on the rim of the battlemented walls and protruding from the walls. These are said to represent the faces of Greenmount villagers to whom John turner had taken particular dislike. The heads of the gargoyles are hollow, and in wet weather water dribbled from their ears and mouths. The inside of the summerhouse was once panelled with richly carved oak. It was said that Turner, an eccentric man and his valet would occasionally go on the binge, spending days at the time locked in the summerhouse. There were various passages leading back to the main house. The passages one lined with coloured glass, opened out into rooms in which there were more stone carvings of animals and people. A most impressive one is of a man lying on a couch, gun at his side and dog at his feet. John turner devised some tricky water spouts along the approach to the house. One was a brass hose cunningly concealed in the cobbles at his front gate, one over the front door and another in summerhouse. He used these on any undesirable visitors, who were given an unexpected soaking

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Preliminary Considerations & Recent History.

Nabb House and Wing House were purchased by the current owners in 2006 and with the subsequent benefit of Planning Permissions have carried out major extensions, conversion and restoration works of the host dwelling. A Condition of the Planning Permissions was that the Listed Folly and Arcade would be restored in accordance with a Listed Building Consent Application and Permission. Prior to any restoration works being executed a feasibility study, cost schedule, business plan would be prepared to support an application for Grant Aid via the Local Authority and Heritage Lottery Funding etc. The Folly undoubtedly makes an immediate impression, demanding to be noticed. It is the purpose of this document to relate something of the history of this highly individual and somewhat unique building and describe the owners plans to secure its future. The building has been allowed, by previous owners, to decay over the years and it is now become necessary to execute temporary structural/stabilisation support work to protect the building and this will be initially undertaken, all in accordance with the Structural Engineers schedule and details prior to the proposed restoration works to be carried out by the current owners. Substantial repairs and restoration are now required to bring this garden Folly, back to its former glory, worthy of its Grade II Listing. The works will comprise of the external alterations including initial structural stabilisation works all as per Structural Engineer Details, new windows and doors within existing openings, drainage works, including restoration and repairs to the external stone work, part rendered and originally panelled interior, moulded Gothic details, window reveals etc all as per detailed schedule.

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Preliminary Considerations & Recent History.

During the works to the host dwelling being carried out a number of interesting carved stone sculptures have been uncovered in staccato locations around the site, currently and in the absence of any records, it is difficult to identify and pinpoint their original positions. It is intended, where possible, to establish the original siting of the various gargoyles and numerous original stone features and secure to agreed locations. Prior to commencement of any restoration works and upon the level of funding available a Detailed Programme of Works will be formulated and based upon a Sequence of Operations. Preliminary investigation has established that numerous elements of the original building i.e doors, windows, floor finishes, internal panelling, wall finishes, external rain water goods etc have been removed and a considerable amount of deterioration has been allowed as a result of lack of remedial works and investment by previous owners, as stated earlier. The only evidence of subsequent conversion and remedial works is the insertion of an RSJ affording strengthening to the central roof area, assumed to replace an original timber beam support. There is also evidence of random bitumen patching of the roof elements along with the building of a brick fireplace and supporting chimney breast. One of the most pleasing aspects of the proposal will be making the selection of the elements to be reinstated as there are, as far as we are aware and in the absence of any established architectural precedents or records, no defined examples or criterion upon which to determine a true representation or reinstatement of the original details.

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Preliminary Considerations & Recent History.

From the limited testimony available, it would appear that many of the internal finishes such as the richly carved oak, in particular, were indeed sourced from different parts of the country and possibly the world. They appear to have been put together in a somewhat haphazard fashion, this assumption would reflect John Turners idiosyncratic and peculiar characteristics. Again the only evidence of this and that we have been able to identify to date, is the extract from The Story of my Life by Ralph Rooney printed in the Bury Times circa May 1947. The only evidence to possibly support this theory is the part residual fragments of unfixed timber mouldings, which are assumed to have been door architraves. There is, however, insufficient material to substantiate the theory. Following the safeguarding of the building, associated arcade and walled garden, the next priority is to concentrate on the provision of the future use, maintenance and management of The Folly. Securing of its future will only be possible if the building and associated arcade etc will become welcoming, usable and an accessible focus for the family and their friends. This unique and hugely appealing singularly quirky building has survived the vicissitudes of over one hundred and seventy years. With the correct planning, detailing, Listed Building Consent and supporting Grant Aid, it will be restored to its former glory, as we owe it to those who follow to pass it on in a functional, usable state with a fresh purpose.

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Design and Access Statement 1. Use.
1. 1.This planning design and access statement [PDAS] has been prepared to accompany the application for Listed Building Consent in respect of the proposed re-roofing, structural and internal reinstatement works in relation to the existing Grade II listed building known as the Folly and the adjoining area/room with the vaulted roof.

2.

Amount of development.

2.1 Detailed and Listed Building consent is sought for the re-roofing, structural works, replacement of the missing widows and doors inclusive of internal reinstatement works, works in connection with the rear enclosed walled garden along with external terracing/landscaping to the front of the Folly. 2.2 The structural/reinstatement proposals are fully contained within the confines of the existing building. 2.3 The proposals will include the conversion of the building to provide ancillary accommodation for the host dwelling. 2.4 The design is based upon sustainability build principles and the proposals will include fixing of existing stone carvings and features to locations to be agreed on or within the vicinity of the Folly. 3. Layout 3.1 The application for Listed Building Consent relates to the need to ensure the Folly does not fall into further disrepair, following years of neglect of the previous owners and to allow the building to make a significant contribution to the host dwelling. 3.2 The proposals will have the minimum impact on the surrounding premises. 3.3 The proposed intension, in the absence of any succinct record drawings and details to faithfully, as far as possible, 3.4 reinstate the building to habitable accommodation thus ensuring longevity and reflecting, in part, the original accommodation it afforded. 3.5 The design approach has been strongly influenced by the discussions held and the guidelines given by the Planning and Conservation Officers.

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Design and Access Statement
4. Scale. 4.1 The Folly is located within the grounds of the established host dwelling Nabbs House/Wing House which has had the benefit of substantial extension and conversion over the past 12-18 months. 4.2 The only access is from the host dwelling via the existing vehicular pavement cross over into the courtyard. 4.3 The premises, is a detached dwelling contained within substantial and mature gardens. 4.4 The proposed extension will have no affect on the Arcade or Listed Wall. 4.5 Nabbs House/Wing House is owned by the applicant, currently there is an application for works in connection with the existing listed wall and boundary wall/fencing treatment. 4.6 The proposals with endeavour to reflect the character of the existing building supplemented only the necessary structural works in accordance with the Structural Engineers details. 4.7 Essentially the views of the Folly will be maintained from Brandlesholme Road. 4.8 The access in and out of the Folly can only be gained from the host dwelling as this affords security to the building. 4.9 The proposals will include for the introduction of new services will provide an essential element in the maintenance and the ongoing use of the building. 4.10 The proposals are intended to maintain and reflect the whimsical use of the original use of the Folly. 5. Landscaping

5.1 The proposals do not affect any of the mature nature of the established shrubbery, landscaping and trees. 5.2 The proposals are part of a continuing improvement of the current landscaping with the provision of new planting etc. 5.3 Consideration is to be given to the extent of the external hard landscaping which, to a degree, will be influenced by the root configuration of the existing mature trees and shrubbery. 5.4 The intention is to landscape the rear enclosed garden with a percentage of terracing relieved with selected areas of planting and grass and possibly the incorporation of a fountain feature.

10

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Design and Access Statement
6. Appearance 6.1 The existing building is to remain and it intended to carryout the remedial works without any notable visual difference to the overall appearance and character of the building with exception of the reintroduction of metal framed casement windows and distressed polished ledged and braced boarded hardwood doors. 6.2 Consideration, under advisement, to pointing the external stonework. 6.3 The Folly can be partly viewed from Brandlesholme Road. 6.4 The proposals will include for external illumination to the perimeter of the building with inset floor mounted LED light fittings and inset wall mounted or post mounted LED spots incorporated within the soft planting areas. 7.

8. Planning History, Policy and Government Advise 8.1 The emphasis of PPS1 is on planning for sustainable developments balanced against the need to protect and enhance the quality of the natural and historic environment in both the rural and urban areas. 8.2 It is implicit that the proposals embrace all such elements of the policy. 8.3 The original Planning Approvals are or have been fully implemented and it is anticipated that an application for Listed Building Consent is being prepared for a further submission in relation to the Arcade. 8.4 There are no trees affected by the proposal. 8.5 In an effort to maintain those elements under the existing listings being of particular interest and offer the greatest contribution to this part of the local area. 8.6 The proposals, where possible without compromising the integrity of the existing building, will be built to full compliance with Part M standards. 8.7 A series of meetings with both the Planning and Conservation Officer at which the initial considerations were discussed at length and this has significantly influenced the proposals. 8.8 The submission is fully supported by both the research, consultations and the preparation of detailed drawings and schedule of proposals.

12

NABBS HOUSE FOLLY - THE IMAGES - WF 149 Design and Access Statement
9. The Amount of Development 9.1 The proposals are for a conversion of the existing ground floor level of an existing property known as the Folly. 9.2 The proposal is to be fully contained within the constraints of the existing total building footprint. 9.3 The proposal provides the opportunity to bring back into use an existing unique building of both local and national importance which will arrest any further deterioration. 9.4 The floor space of the proposal does not exceed that of the original building cartilage. 10. Layout & Planning Related Considerations 10.1 The proposed upgrading will enhance the appearance of what is a listed building that has allowed to fall in to disrepair. 10.2 The application site has mature landscaping comprising trees, hedgerows and planting which will not be affected by the proposals. 10.3 There are a number of mature trees on site which will not be affected by the proposal. 10.4 The proposed re-roofing will be fully contained within the confines of the existing parapet walls at all levels. 11. Concluding Comments 11.1 The proposals will make a significant contribution to the host dwelling and to the area in which it is located.

Reference -ProposedIt has been assumed that the original windows were lead glazed panes contained within metal frames. Metal windows in old buildings are principally made from one of three materials, wrought iron, cast iron or mild steel. Their historical development reflects advancing technology. Individually-crafted wrought iron frames with leaded glass date from the mid-16th century onwards and are of the fixed or opening casement type. Factory-made cast iron windows appeared in the mid-19th century, the sliding sash version becoming popular. Components have a deeper profile and had a more repetitive appearance than wrought iron. Mild steel were produced extensively from the First World War to the 1970s. Synonymous with the dominant design and construction techniques of the time, there exist a wide variety of styles and can still be bespokely manufactured to echo most of the traditional designs. The proposal is to agree a design of leaded glazing, complete with opening lights all to be contained within a architectural bronze extruded system of metal frames and to be located within the existing rebates of the stone reveals. Fixing and weatherproofing method to be agreed in conjunction with manufacturer. The frames are designed for the use on historic buildings, where Part Lof the Building Regulations is not a requirement. The proposed system offers the ability to double glaze with a range of glass from 3mm Crown Antiqued Leaded Glass a 10mm cavity and internal leaf of float Laminated or Toughened Glass.

-ExistingWhilst there is no substantial evidence of original hoppers or rainwater goods there does exist below ref: G 01, a cut out of the perimeter stone horizontal feature course and some localized water/metal staining on the immediate areas of stone wall. This would suggest, along with the indication of fixing locations, of possible rainwater down pipes. However, the apertures that exists in location G 02 would appear to concur with the assertion that John Turner devised some tricky water spouts along the approach to the house, one was a brass hose cunningly concealed in the cobbles at his front gate, one over the front door and another in the summerhouse. How they were operated is the subject of conjecture and will require further consideration. The feature turrets appear to be in sound structural condition and with the exception of some water ingress and removal of ivy, there appears to be no major remedial works to both the turrets and external walls ref G 03, other than possible pointing and cleaning along with roof repairs which are addressed later in the document.

Rear door or window ref D 04.

The question remains was the original aperture intended to be a door or full height window ? The vertical stone mullions would suggest a door as they match the detail of the similar aperture to that of the entrance door on the front elevation. The close proximity of the adjoining door aperture would appear to negate the need for a second door, however, with idiosyncratic nature of the builder/designer nothing can be discounted. The square headed door opening could very well have been a later insertion and possibly not part of the original concept design. The theory is possibly supported by the fact that all other door and window apertures have Gothic head arches along with the fact that the internal stone leaf appears to have been disturbed and sections of the random stone are either missing or repaired with infill/cut stone inserts.

Currently there exists a somewhat corroded steel I beam which we assume has been either introduced or has replaced an original timber beam affording support to the stone slab roof construction. It has been assumed that the corrosion has occurred as a direct result of a combination of water ingress and interstitial condensation.

-ExistingExisting stone arch ref G 17, as with ref G 10, there is evidence of repairs that have been executed in the past in an effort to arrest any further structural instability. The structural engineer in conjunction with The Conservation Officer to agree the extent and method of works to be undertaken. Further it is unclear as to whether the stone reveals to the arch was originally rendered as part of the internal finishes or left exposed as a detail. Penetration by water over the years is one of the commonest and potentially one of the most damaging failures that can occur in old buildings; it can damage the external stone wall construction by virtue of the twin processes of constant saturation and drying; to cause decay and washing out mortar from the joints; to soak timbers and steelwork leading to dry rot, wet rot and corrosion of all metal elements of construction; to encourage frost damage and to stain the surface and provide ideal conditions for the growth of numerous types of vegetation. Repairs must commence with the stopping the water ingress and penetration. There are generally considered to be two situations where this applies i] direct water penetration by driving rain and groundwater ii] the porosity of the construction.

Existing external wall construction

Consideration is being given to re-pointing the external wall of varying stone construction. Whilst recognising that premature pointing could result in damage; visually disturbing and can be harmful to the actual fabric it is intended to protect. A full assessment will be made to identify i] if the mortar has weathered back to a depth equivalent to the joint width or is very loose. The re-pointing as necessary will be carried out in a selected lime mortar for the following reasons:It is porous and will absorb moisture from the surrounding stone; any salt or frost damage occurs in the lime, thus protecting the surrounding materials. It allows the walls to breathe; moisture will evaporate as rapidly as it enters. Refer to item G 41 pages 60 & 61.

-ExistingIt has been assumed that the tight joints between the coursed stonework to the main elevations has been weathered back to at least a depth equivalent to the joint width, as such it is difficult to ascertain as to whether the original joints flush, keyed or struck joints. Generally the assumed lime mortar used is more permeable than the stone, concentrating frost and salt action in the joints. Irregular weathering means only localised repointing would be required. Repointing is not justified simply because the mortar is soft. A weak hydraulic lime binder was preferred historically for pointing, but, if unavailable, purer local, non hydraulic lime was used [ sometimes with brick dust or pozzalan to compensate]. Currently no floor finish are legacy of the original floor finish has been identified, however, it has been assumed that the original stone flagged floor has been removed by previous owners. There exists a fluctuation of floor levels with no discernable reason both structurally or for any apparent significant ergonomic requirement.

Reference -ProposedIt is intended to remove any weather-struck cement pointing where identified assuming that following a trial, this can be achieved without further damage. The reason for this is that cement pointing leads generally to faster deterioration of stone as they become the most permeable part of the wall and as such suffer greatest frost and salt reaction. Identification of the mortar jointing will be best observed from a sheltered area i.e under eaves. When the mortar mix and jointing has been identified a sample are will be agreed and trialled for agreement with the Conservation Officer. If joint type in doubt a flush or nearly flush joint is frequently appropriate. A binder [assumed to be lime and not cement] and aggregate [assumed sand] are to be selected to ensure the existing mortar is matched in colour, texture and strength. In most instances, existing mortar can be adequately assessed from visual inspection coupled with local knowledge. Consideration is being given to the alternative methods for the reinstatement of the internal floor, in both the logical and ecological methods to include the use of original, natural materials such as straw due to the unique way in which it deals with moisture.

Reference -Image-ExistingOver many years of neglect, various attempts have been made to patch the existing stone roof construction, non of which have been successful. The result of the lack of addressing the problem, has been constant water ingress and this has resulted in the growth of vegetation, which has further exacerbated the problem along with interstitial condensation. It has been assumed that this ongoing problem has been the major factor in that the interior finishes have either deteriorated beyond redemption or by the deliberate removal of many of the original features i.e. richly carved oak panelling.

Reference -ProposedFollowing the site visit of the specialist conservation roofing contractor the following are the initial recommendations for the re-roofing of the main roof and turret zones:Due to the constraints of the existing building profiles, the uneven shape of the walls the most suitable covering would be lead. It is recommended that consideration should be given to the construction of a sub structure on suitable tanalised timber joists built either into the existing parapet walls or onto wall plates so as not to afford any additional loading onto the existing roof structure complete with appropriate decking laid to falls on tilting fillets. It is proposed that the new timber roof support construction should be located approximately 150mm below the perimeter parapet coping and then the new horizontal DPC to be installed below the existing coping, which would act as a cover flashing to the roof upstand.

Currently and it the absence of any details to support the fact that they may or may not have been suitable vertical rainwater goods, we propose to adopt what was considered to be the original roof water disposal by the use of lead chutes/spitters. However, whilst lead appears to be the most suitable medium our concern relates to potential pilferage and the consequential damage the building as the roof areas are not visible to the perimeter prevailing levels, consideration should be given to alternative high performance felts.
