Garden Wall in front of Thornley
Hall and Gateposts at Thornley


House, early C18th with C17th remains, much altered. Rendered rubble with
slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. Facade has quoins with channeled
rustication, continuous drip courses over ground and 1st floor windows, and
a cyma moulded cornice gutter. The porch is gabled with a coping and 2
balls and a chamfered outer doorway with triangular head. On the lintel
there is an inscription, difficult to read, but said by the VCH to be as
follows: 'B.O. Michael Dovghtie 1605'. Inside the porch is a cupboard
door, once in the dining room, inscribed 'EPM 1709'. The windows are
sashed with no glazing bars in plain stone surrounds with 2 rebates and a
chamfer. The ground-floor windows are larger, with 2 to the left of the
porch and one to the right. The lst floor windows probably originally had
a mullion and a transom, with 4 to the left and one to the right of the
porch. Chimneys on the gables. The left-hand gable wall has, towards
the rear, a one-light rebated and chamfered window, now unglazed and
opening into a compartment divided from the dining room, possibly associated
with an alteration in the fireplace arrangements. Under the apex is a
circular chamfered opening to the attic. The rear wall has 2 projecting
external chimney stacks, now with later Cl9th caps. Against the wall is a
later extension. Inside no C17th features are visible.
