The Manse of The Point in View, Summer Lane. 1825. Built as the Manse for The Point-in-View, and repeating some of the stylistic features of the latter. Stucco facade with hipped tiled roof. End chimneys. 2½ storeys. The front elevation has a symmetrical design, sashes with diagonal latticed glazing. Flank diamond-shaped first floor window. Centre porch. The Manse faces the Chapel and Almshouses of The Point in View (each surrounded by a garden) within the same small field. The Point-in-View of the Misses Parminter who built the main building in 1811 was to help Jewish converts to Christianity (and they were to be preferred to others as pupils and teacher ). Trees on the estate were not to be cut down; 'till Israel returns and is restored to the Land of Promise'. The whole complex is thus of major significance, not only architecturally but also historically and as a socially innovative group. Date listed: 15th June 1978.
