Listing Text

SJ 31 NE
4/125 Kinton Manor

House. Probably C15 with late C16 addition, partly rebuilt in the mid-C19.
Timber framed, of cruck construction, with painted brick nogging. Partly
rebuilt or refaced and enlarged in painted dressed sandstone and brick.
Slate roof, partly graded. Framing: C16 wing with closely spaced studs
(and middle rail to first floor) , short angle braces and jettied gable
with brackets and collar and tie-beam truss with studs and V-struts.
Former hall house of 3 framed bays with later projecting wing to centre and
C19 additions or rebuildings to left and right. Two storeys. Brick ridge
stacks off-centre to left and right and external brick lateral stack in front
to left. Three-window front; 2- and 3-light casements, segmental-headed
on ground-floor to left Late C19 lean-to timber framed porch in angle of
wing to right with single-light window to front and boarded door in return.
Early C19 front door to wing behind with 6 flush panels. Interior: full
cruck truss between first and second bays from left, truncated above
collar; possible cruck truss between second and third bays from left.
Deep chamfered beams and chamfered joists in third bay from left. Tie-beam
truss between third and fourth bays from left (probably formerly end truss).
Eaves raised in the C19. Later alterations make it difficult to interpret
the building but the third bay from the left was probably always floored,
enlarged to the front in the C16, and the open hall was probably to its left,
although now much altered. The left-hand part of the house adjoins a former
C18 ban by what appears to be a later infill section. Alcock (1981), p. 144.
