Statement of Special Interest
Further door into Rosehill from outer left of Rose
Court, to E, with which it was formerly adjoined as one
property until the 1900s. The design of Eskhill, to
north, may well have been influenced by that of
Rosehill, as they share a 3-storey, 5-bay form, and
recessed window panels, but the piend roof and wider
pile of Eskhill give visual evidence of its later date.
