Opposite one of the entrances to the Park is Baston Cottage, an elegant building in the Gothic stile of architecture. It is the property of Decimus Burton, Esq. There are some extensive pleasure grounds here, which are laid out with great taste. Immediately adjacent to Baston cottage, are the Calverley Nursery Grounds, in the occupation of Mr. William Piper, which always afford a most delightful lounge to visitors, and are well worth seeing. The building of the new town appeared to act as a powerful stimulus, for while this was going on the Windmill Fields in the neighbourhood of Calverley were covered with cottages, and much of the adjoining land was also built upon. Several detached villas have been erected, as well as a row of houses, called Park View, pleasantly situated, which command an extensive prospect. Adjoining these is Grove Hill comprising a number of genteel residences and first-rate lodging-houses, which are eagerly sought after during the season.
