12/87 Great Mitton Hall (previously
listed as Mitton Old Hall)

House, c.1600. Rubble, pebbledashed towards south-west, with steep
slate roof. 2 storeys with attic and cellar. Original windows
mullioned with outer chamfer and inner hollow chamfer. The south-west
wall has a single-storey gabled porch near the centre having a re-used
outer doorway, probably C14th, with pointed head and with a roll moulding
with fillet. Above is a coping with finial. To the right is a gabled
single-storey extension with the remains of the hood to a blocked
window on the 1st floor. To the left is the line of what appears to be
a demolished wing, implying that the porch is an addition. At the left
is an enlarged 3-light window with hood. On the 1st floor is a 5-light
window with hood. The left-hand gable has a chimney with brick cap Gable
copings, the left-hand one with finials. The left-hand (north-west)
gable has a hood remaining on the 1st floor and an attic window with
hood and with one light remaining. The right-hand gable is buttressed and
has a mullioned cellar window, a 14-light mullioned and transomed ground-
floor window, a 7-light 1st floor window and a 5-light attic window.
The north-east wall has a turret at its left-hand end, gabled with a
coping and finial. Chamfered lights at intermediate levels suggest that
it may once have contained a stair. It has a 2-light window with hood
on the 1st floor and a similar blocked window to the attic. Its right-hand
return wall has a wooden door surround with triangular head, probably
re-set. A Buckler drawing of 18O9 shows a doorway in the left-hand
return wall, now blank. Near the centre of this facade is a gabled
dormer with blocked window and hood, and with a small chimney cap. At
the right on the ground floor is an original window with one mullion
remaining. Above is a 4-light window with hood, with a 3-light window
to its left. There are a number of blocked window openings, but the 4
remaining windows are C19th with chamfered stone surrounds. The door has
a chamfered stone surround with hood. Interior not accessible at time
of survey but said to contain no features of particular interest.
