7/16 The Grange and attached wall
House. Probably mainly late C17 or early C18 with earlier range at right-angles
to rear; later additions and alterations. Roughly coursed limestone rubble,
regularly coursed to front alternating with limestone blocks forming banded
stonework; slate roofs with C20 sprocketed eaves to front. Main range a T-plan
with contemporary parallel gabled range in angle to rear on left; earlier range
attached to rear of short rear section of main range. 2 storeys and attic. 3
large C20 wooden mullioned and transomed windows with leaded lights and C19
chamfered wood lintels. Central entrance; C20 glazed double doors with outline
of former gabled porch above. 3 contemporary hip-roofed leaded dormers in roof
slope. Integral end stacks with dripstones and red brick tops, rendered to
right. Earlier rear range has 3-light leaded casement on ground floor and large
wooden mullioned and transomed window (also C20) directly above to garden side;
integral end stack with top rebuilt in C20. Wall: attached to front right corner
of main range. Probably early to mid-C19. Regularly coursed limestone rubble
with embattled parapet and sharply pointed arch to left. Approximately 20 metres
in length. Interior. Front part has chamfered cross beams to ground-floor rooms,
2 to right now knocked into one. Chamfered ceiling beams also to first floor.
Earlier rear range has massive deep-chamfered cross-beam ceiling with chamfered
joists and ring-beam, possibly late C16. Huge infilled inglenook fireplace with
moulded wood lintel to gable end and remodelled inglenook fireplace at junction
with main range. High ceiling with 2 boxed cross beams on first floor. Roof
structure visible in attic: double-purlin roof in 3 bays with 2 doubled collar
trusses. The fact that the principal rafters rise directly from the wall tops
and do not rest on the cross beams of the floor below suggest that this range
was originally open to the roof at first-floor level. This and its somewhat
unusual character suggest that it may have been built as some kind of communal
hall or meeting-place. C20 gabled addition in angle to right between main range
and earlier rear range and C20 flat-roofed extension to latter are not of
special architectural interest.
