Melton Grange

  • Built / Designed For: Major J.E.W. Howey

    House & Family History: Melton Grange is a red brick house in a Jacobethan Renaissance style with crenellated parapets and Renaissance gables. The house was, until 2003, used as a hotel, which resulted in inappropriate 20th century extensions to the rear and the far right. It is today vacant and attracting vandals.

    Comments: SAVE Britain's Heritage said of Melton Grange: "The elaborate stone and terracotta dressings of the long principal facade are remarkable."
