Description

The monument consists of the remains of a late sixteenth/early seventeenth century house. Foxhall Newydd was begun in 1592 by John Panton, but the house was never completed. It was a 3 storey stone-building with attic and basement, but is now a ruinous shell, with walling to almost full height, but without roofs or floors. It has a long cruciform plan with a short central stair projection opposite a entrance projection. There are projecting lateral fireplaces to each side, stone mullion windows with internal voussoirs, two full height bay-windows and a gabled-dormer roof line.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of settlement and domestic activity. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. A house may be part of a larger cluster of monuments and their importance can further enhanced by their group value.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
