Il suo lavoro è basato su un ingegnoso spazio aperto, detta "Great Hall" o "sitting hall", situato subito dopo l'ingresso, da cui parte una grande scala che porta ai piani superiori. Questo divenne il modello di casa di campagna per famiglie più prodotto nell'ultimo decennio del XIX secolo. Fu anche coinvolto numerose architetture di tipo ecclesiastico: restaurò infatti anche la St. John's Church (Leeds), e progetto la St. Margaret's church (Ilkley) e la "Chiesa di Tutti i Santi" di Leek.si dice che avesse dovuto imbarcarsi sul titanic,ma che sfortunatamente perse la nave
