Description
Detached single-bay (two-bay deep) double-height gable-fronted boathouse, extant 1818, on an elongated half-octagonal plan. Now disused. Pitched (gable-fronted) corrugated-iron roof on collared timber construction with pressed iron ridge, rooflights, and cast-iron rainwater goods on cut-limestone eaves with downpipes now missing. Coursed rubble limestone walls on coursed or snecked limestone battered base with hammered limestone flush quoins to corners. Square-headed opening with no fittings surviving. Abbreviated square-headed window openings to side elevations with hammered limestone lintels framing remains of timber fittings. Set on mud flat in grounds shared with Westport House.

Appraisal

A dilapidated boathouse contributing positively to the group and setting values of the Westport House estate.
