SO 91 NW BADGEWORTH BENTHAM
4/22 Bentham Manor
Large house. Possibly C13-C14 (see later) but may be in fact C17
in date. Large blocks of coursed squared and finely dressed
limestone, randomly coursed in places; stone slate roof; C20
coursed squared and dressed limestone stacks and 2 brick stacks.
Brick and timber framed porch. Rectangular plan with a projecting
timber-framed porch. Two storeys and attic. Six-windowed entrance
front. C19 two and 3-light casements some with transoms, mostly
with horizontal glazing bars, some with leaded panes. Two-light
stone-mullioned casement lower right. Three hipped dormers.
Central 6-panel door with 2 fielded panels and 2 glazed panels set
within a round-headed timber-framed surround. C13-C14 flat-
chamfered pointed arch within the porch at the centre of the
entrance front. The rear elevation has fenestration similar to
that of the entrance front but includes some blocked windows and
some single-light windows with flat-chamfered surrounds. Gable-end
and axial stacks. It is uncertain whether the C13-C14 archway is
insitu, but earthworks to the rear of the house suggest that this
house does lie on an early site. Interior not inspected, exterior
inspection only possible from the road.
