(north side)
6/34 Light Oaks Hall
House. Early C17. Brick with stone dressings and slate roof.
2 bays and 2 storeys remain of a former 3-bay house. The
left gable was rebuilt and the rear added to in C20. Bay 1
has a 10-light double-chamfered stone mullion window with
king mullion on each floor. Bay 2 has a similar 5-light
window on each floor. All have hoodmoulds. In between is the
original studded door in a heavy chamfered surround with
obtuse-angled lintel. The most notable feature of the
elevation is the use of lozenge pattern decoration in black
brick headers over the entire first floor. Bold projecting
chimney stack to right gable-end. A small wing projects to
the rear of the right bay and a C20 extension to rear of
left bay. Despite the loss of a bay to the left, the
elevation is of exceptional quality. Interior: the main
door opens directly into the house-part which has C17
panelling throughout. The panelling includes 3 armorial
panels and a fourth with combined arms and a date of 1657. 3
heavy ovolo-moulded beams with stepped stops. C20 fire
surround and overmantle. Victoria County History of
Lancashire, 1907.
