Hay Hall
(Reynolds Tube Company
SP 18 SW 13/5 25.4.52
A sub manor of the Esle family. Originally, probably a C15 open hall with
cross-wings at either end. This was ceiled and refaced in brick and stone
in the C16. What was originally the back of the house but is now the front
was rebuilt soon after a fire in 1810, and the house was restored and further
altered for its present purpose in 1948. Entrance facade. Brick; tile roof.
Two storeys plus attic; 5 bays, the centre 3 advanced somewhat. Ground floor
with a broad segment-headed window, a tripartite sash window with dripmould,
the modern door beneath a dripmould incorporating a shield and another tripartite
sash and broad segment-headed window. First floor with a sash with blank
pointed arch above, 3 sashes (of 4-, 3- and 4-panes wide) beneath dripmoulds
and another sash with pointed arch above. Rear facade. Partly of brick with
diaperwork and partly of exposed timber-finding with plaster infill. Six
bays, the second and the fifth and sixth projecting somewhat and the first
projecting yet further. Bay 1 is wholly of circa 1948. Bay 2 is the original
2-storeyed timber porch, gabled and now with a modern door set in the blocked
entrance arch. Bay 3 has a round floor broad tripartite segment-headed window
with, above, a renewed mullioned window and a transomed window whose gable
projects above the eaves. Bay 4 is represented by a tripartite window with
leaded lights. Bays 5 and 6 have stone quoins left and right and 2 much renewed
4-light window with a 3-light window with leaded lights in the small gable
above. On the left-hand return, an original 2-light C16 window with leaded
lights. The right hand return is of 3 gabled bays with, between the bays,
on the left, a broad chimney and, on the right, a 2-storeyed gabled projection
