Appraisal

An appealing element in the landscape that forms part of an interesting group of structures associated with Jamestown Court (15402544). This structure was intentionally built to look like a romantic/picturesque Gothic ruin in the landscape, a common feature associated with country estates in Ireland during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century.
