20/24 The Hindmarsh Hall


Village Hall. Originally early C18 granary, altered in mid C19. Street
front squared stone of near-ashlar quality; other elevations large rubble;
cut dressings. Welsh slate roof. C19 remodelling in plain C13 style.

Gable front to street. Central pair of pointed moulded doorways, left with
boarded double doors, right with C20 glazing, flanked by small inserted
windows. 4 short lancets above, and 2 taller lancets in gable, all with
leaded glazing. Coped gable on moulded kneelers has corbelled-out gabled
bellcote with pointed arch and moulded finial. Returns each show 2 stepped
buttresses, 2- and 3-light late C19 windows (central window on left return
set in older blocked arch) and 5 lancets higher in the wall; stepped-and-
corniced stack on left return. Rear gable end shows 2 lancets high in wall.
Right return and rear gable end also show blocked granary openings to 4 floor
levels; those to 1st floor have rough relieving arches above lintels.

Historical notes. Probably the earliest of the surviving Alnmouth granaries;
there is some evidence that it was converted to a corn exchange before
remodelling as an Anglican chapel in 1859; after the parish church was built
in 1876 it served as a village hall.
