12. Andrew Saint in his Richard Norman Shaw points out the influential role that the plan of Chesters played in the development of the Arts and Crafts butterfly X-plan house during the next couple of decades (p 332). However, Peter Davey in his Arts and Crafts Architecture (p 71 of the 1980 edition) writes that an 'equally probable' influence on Prior was Hector Horeau's long demolished house of 1856 which stood in Avenue Road, St John's Wood, London, near Prior's house, which had two wings set at 45degrees to the central hexagonal portion of the house
