4/6 St. Mary's Hall
- II

Farmhouse. C15 and C16. Timber framed and plastered with peg tile roofs. The
main block is of 2 storeys and of 'H' plan form with unjettied crosswings at
each end. The rear has been infilled between the crosswing with a C20 2 storey
flat roofed extension. The fronts of the crosswings are gables and the rear has
half hips. To the south east of this main block is a 2 storey structure,
connected at the corner and with a peg tile roof, gabled to the east and hipped
to the west. The main front has bargeboards to the wings, C20 pargetting
including gable top crests and leaded light C19 casements. The off-centre door
has an early C19 pedimented doorcase with lobed continuous architrave. The
southern crosswing has a C16 stack against its exposed flank with 3 original
octagonal stacks. The north wing has a later flank stack. The main block now
appears to be mainly of the C16 with typical corner chamfers on the north
crosswing, bridging joists. The rear block is a 2 storey structure of 2 bays
with a simple but massive crown post roof. The north crosswing has a good
early C19 corner cupboard, but here set into the flank wall. Moated site. RCHM
