10/38 Hammerton Hall
- II*

House, probably c.1600, with east cross-wing added C19th. Slobbered rubble with
sandstone dressings and slate roof. E-plan. 2 storeys with attic. On each side
of the central porch, on both floors, is a 6-light mullioned window with outer
chamfer, inner hollow chamfer, and hood. The left-hand cross-wing has the remains
of a chamfered surround, with a hood, now containing a modern door and window. On
the 1st floor is a window similar to those flanking the porch. The 3-light attic
window has an ogee head and hood. The gable has a coping, and the west wall has
a large projecting stack with offsets. The right-hand (east) cross-wing has
punched quoins. On the ground floor is a window of 3 large lights with chamfered
stone surround and mullions, with a hood. On the 1st floor is a window similar
to those flanking the porch, but with 3 mullions only remaining. The attic has
a blocked 3-light window matching that to the other wing and either reconstructed
or a copy. The gable has a coping. The gabled porch oversails on the 1st floor
with a cyma moulding. This floor has an ovolo-moulded mullioned and transomed
window, with 12 lights, all blocked, at the front, and 6 lights on each return
wall, with some blocked. Above is a 5-light attic window matching those to the
wings, and a gable coping. The outer doorway is moulded with a Tudor-arched
head and hood. The inner doorway is chamfered with a similar head. An early
door of studded vertical planks remains. Central range of rear has some
double-chamfered windows on each floor, mostly blocked.
Interior. At the left of the passage immediately inside the front door, now
partly covered by a later stair, is a doorway in a timber partition with ogee
doorhead, and a plank door, split horizontally and with early hinges. Other
internal walls are formed by wattle-and-daub panels in timber framing, by
vertical framed panelling, and by square panelling with plain chamfered rails
and muntins. The east cross-wing has softwood beams, but a doorway leading into
it on the 1st floor, from the central part of the house, is of chamfered stone
with a Tudor-arched head. The west cross-wing has, in its front room, a wide
chamfered fireplace with segmental head. A door leading to the rear room has
a deep hollow moulding and a Tudor-arched head. In the central section, to
the east of the cross-wing, is a spiral stone stair. A view of the house from
the rear,c.1720, appears in Buck, Samuel, Yorkshire Sketchbook, reproduced in
facsimile, Wakefield, 1979. ~ -
