6/38 Reasby Hall
Small country house, now farmhouse. C16, C17, 1708 with
extensive C19 and C20 alterations. Squared limestone rubble with
some C19 brick to plinth, rendered gables and ashlar dressings.
Concrete tiled roof having 3 large rectangular brick stacks to
valley. Parallel ranges. 2 storey with attics, 9 bay front
having plinth, first floor band and eaves board. Off centre C20
door with to right 2 glazing bar sashes and to left 6 similar
windows. Near the centre is a recessed panel bearing the arms of
the Sanderson family inscribed with the initials "NES" and "RS"
and dated "1708", set in a rectangular moulded surround. To
first floor are 9 glazing bar sashes. 2 of the ground floor
windows have ashlar reveals, suggesting that they are part of the
C17 fenestration. The plinth stops immediately to the right of
the door, marking the addition of 2 bays to the original
structure. In the rear wall is a chamfered rectangular window,
at low level, and a buttress, which together provide evidence of
a major C16 structure of a different plan. In the left hand side
is an early C17 doorway with 4 centred arched head and moulded
stone surround. The interior retains chamfered and moulded
girders, some with shield shaped stops. The dog leg stairs have
early C18 turned balusters and moulded hand rail. The service
stair retains C17 splat serpentine balusters at the top. The
roof is of pegged butt purlin construction without ridge piece,
and has carpenters assembly marks to the principals. The spine
wall of the parallel ranges does not divide the roof.
