1/22 Remains of Bellamour
Old Hall

- II

House remains. Early C17; attic storey removed circa 1840, partly
demolished in the 1960's. Sandstone ashlar with ashlar stacks, now
roofless. The house has a chamfered plinth and survives to a height
of 2 storeys in part. 4 window front: mullioned and transomed windows
with concave quarter circle-moulded members. The central former 2-
storey porch is stratigraphically later than the house; it gives access
to a Tudor arch doorway with moulded surround terminating half way down
the jambs. The right hand return retains a left hand doorway with
a cyma recta moulded dripstone, and a right hand doorway with 3-centred
arch and nail studded door. Interior. The ground and first floors
are each divided into 2 front and 2 rear rooms. Each of these 8 rooms
was heated by a fireplace with Tudor arch and ovolo-moulded surround,
served by one of a pair of central chimney stacks. The front rooms
were over cellars with blocked-stone mullioned windows towards the front.
The remains of Bellamour Old Hall were in a neglected and dangerous
condition at the time of the resurvey.
