TQ 99 SW
7/82 Lambourne Hall
House originally a 2 bay hall late C13, with C14, C15, C17 and later alterations
and additions. Timber framed and plastered. Red plain tiled roofs. The east
face with external left part plastered chimney stack, polygonal attached shafts
to central western range and stack to west of rear southern range. Of complex
plan and many builds. Mainly 2 storeys or 2 storeys and attics. The present
front (east) of 2 storeys and attics with gambrel roof. Flat headed dormer to
right of external chimney stack. 3 window range of small paned vertically
sliding sashes to right of this chimney stack. C20 part glazed door, red tiled
porch on brackets. Right single storey range with a C20 glazed door, central 2
light casement and vertically boarded double doors to right. The left return
has a 2-window range of small paned vertically sliding sashes and single attic
window. To east is a 2 storey porch originally jettied, now underbuilt at
sides, the rear range has a dormer window, forward east range with C20 gabled
porch and C20 glazed window. Red brick faced double range to south. Internally
the wing to the west was a 2-bay hall of late C13 date, the westernmost bay of
which has a later double roof, the bay to the east retains its original roof
with a crown post with moulded base and capital and thick braces to a collar
purlin supported on an end crown post adjoining the crosswing. The whole roof
heavily sooted and the base of a smoke louvre opening extant. Circa 1480
intruded brick chimney stack probably preceding the intrusion of the first
floor. The wing to the east was originally a 4-bay crosswing with an off-centre
narrow bay possibly leading to an external kitchen to the east. The frame of
this wing is still in place up to the original roof plate level, from that level
upwards attics were added under a gambrel roof probably during the C17 with the
incorporation of a contemporary staircase running from an arched opening with
imposts and keystone moulded in plaster. That the hall and crosswing were built
within a short time span is supported by the fact that although the frames are
separate neither exhibit an external wall or weathering. There is the
possibility that the wing is a replacement of an earlier wing, but the remaining
frame has sufficient archaic detailing to suggest this is not the case. Collar
purlin scarf is simple splay with undersquinted abuttments. RCHM 4.
