12/3 Claypit Hall
Farmhouse. Early to mid-C17 with later additions and alterations.
Timber framed with painted brick infill (some in herringbone pattern),
rebuilding and additions painted black and white in imitation. Painted
brick plinth and slate roofs. Original house a T-plan comprising hall
range, probably in 3 framed bays, with gabled 2-bay cross-wing projecting
to west. This has C19 catslide lean-to (converted to conservatory in
C20) attached to south, C19 addition attached at right-angles to east of
hall range and lower C19 red sandstone block range (painted black and
white in imitation of timber frame) attached to north. 2 storeys with
gable-lit attic to main range. Framing: south end of hall range has
mixture of small square panels, 5 from cill to tie beam and small rectang-
ular panels, 6 from cill to tie beam, partly replaced by brick; long
straight tension brace to left. Queen-strut truss with 4 vertical struts
from tie beam to collar and projecting single-purlin ends. C19 casement
(part leaded) to attic with 3-light casement to first floor; 2 mid-C20
casements to ground floor. Similar framing to east wall of hall range
to south of C19 addition but rebuilt in brick to north; gable to centre,
cut by C19 addition, suggests that there was an earlier range projecting
to east at this point. Timber frame to north gable end partly concealed
by C19 addition; square panels to west wall. Gable end of cross-wing
has truncated queen-strut truss with straight braces from wall posts to
tie beam. Extruded red brick stack in roof slope to west side of hall
range has 4 attached and rebated shafts of star section with top rebuilt
in late C19 brick (moulded capping); internal end stack to cross-wing.
Cellar to main range. Various C19 single-storey brick outbuildings attach-
ed to cross-wing, including lean-to to north which contains present main
entrance. Interior. Inspection not possible at time of resurvey (Jan-
uary 1987) but likely to be of interest.
