|Formerly Barony House, the music block at St Bees School in the West Cumbrian village of St Bees, England, is known as the Fox Music Centre. It is a rendered Victorian building with rectangular hood mouldings and label stops.|
From the side, a hood mould may have an upper surface that angles downward and includes a recessed space that serves to direct drips away from the opening.
At its lower ends, the hood mould may terminate on a column capital. It may also be finished with another moulding structure referred to as a label stop. A label stop can be a boss that is plain or decorative.
Eventually, the hood mould became a highly decorative feature, particularly important during the Gothic period. Hood moulds appear above many external arches found in Gothic structures built in much of Europe. In England, they were also used over interior arches - commonly those above nave arcades.
