The August Historic Building Calendar

Edwardian – ‘The Pastures’, Rutland

The Pastures was designed by Charles Voysey and is now listed Grade II*. Voysey was not a very prolific architect and almost all his commissions were completed between 1890 and 1914. These mainly comprised a series of individual houses in locations across England; all in his trademark style of simple rendered walls with horizontal ranges of windows set in stone surrounds and subdivided by stone mullions, under roofs of slate or stone flags, with deep, overhanging eaves.
Whilst Voysey only completed a relatively small number of buildings, his work was widely published and influenced a generation of architects, including those responsible for the garden cities of Letchworth and Welwyn built in the early decades of the 20
th century.
