The plans provide for a tower-like extension to the rear of an existing New North Road residence, the home of George Frederick Hoerle, ammonia &c manfacturer (Of Robinson & Co.). The single cell structure, 16 feet square, is surmounted by a pyramidal slated roof with a finial. At ground level (which is on the same level as the basement of the main house, and adjacent to the wash house) are the sliding doors of the coach house. Above is a scullery which links to the kitchen of the main house. A bedroom occupies the chamber.
Over the yard, between the extesion and the existing stables the plans allow for the raising of a open shed with metal roof trusses snd glazed roofing panels to provide a washing space for vehicles.There is some modification of the drive way leading into the Back Lane, which runs parallel with New North Road ans adjoins the Edgerton Cemetery.
Edward Hughes had undertaken a number of projects for the town's chemical manufacturers.
