NZ 18 NW NZ 132896
10/150 Stanton Old Hall
Strong house, late C16 incorporating medieval fabric, refenestrated mid-C17
and south end remodelled c.1700. Rubble with re-used squared blocks, dressings,
south end ashlar-faced; slate roof. West front 3 storeys, 4 bays. Rusticated
quoins to right. C20 doorway in 2nd bay cuts C17 window opening; older door in
4th bay blocked with C20 window inserted. Other ground and 1st floor windows,
formerly each of 4 lights, have C20 glazing set in C17 chamfered surrounds; some
retain king mullions. Remains of blocked C16 openings on ground floor. 2nd
floor shows bricked-up cross windows of c.1700 in first 2 bays, remainder of
wall hidden by ivy. Coped left gable with old brick stack; stone cross wall with
similar stack on line of 2nd bay; to right of this the block is roofless. South
wall 2 bays; rusticated quoins, C20 glazing in former cross windows in architraves
with scrolled pediments. Irregular east elevation with 2-light mullioned windows,
mostly blocked, and remains of medieval fireplace with heavy corbels; projecting
gabled stair turret near north end. C16 hollow-chamfered doorway on left of
turret concealed by C20 single-storey addition which is not of interest.

Interior: stone winder stair in turret, several old fireplaces including one
with large segmental chamfered arch, probably C16, and hall fireplace of c.1700.
Unusual roof trusses each with one convex and one concave curved principal.
Thicker walls and a change in masonry suggest that the north part of the main
block was a 2-storey gabled structure heightened in the C16.
