2/56 Hall Famhouse

- II

Farmhouse. C17 and early C19, with later additions. 2 storeys. Part white
brick, part timber-framed and encased in white brick: part pantiles, part
plaintiles. The main range of the house is early C19, L-shaped in form, linked
to the older part of the building on the west, and partly enveloping it on the
north. The north side has a brick dentil cornice and 2 tripartite windows to
each storey with small-paned sashes and segmental arched heads to brick
surrounds: central doorway with plain semi-circular arched surround: 6-panel
door, with raised fielded panels and applied egg-and-dart decoration both
inside and out. Above the door a single small-paned sash window. The east
(garden) front must originally have matched the north side, but the doorway has
been blocked, the window above is false, and the windows on the north-east side
have been replaced by a 2-storey flat-roofed canted bay, early C20: sash
windows without glazing bars. On the south side, a single-storey 5-sided bay
circa 1870 has been added, with similar large-paned sash windows. The older 3-
bay timber-framed range, faced in white brick on the south side, and with a
long 1½ storey lean-to in red brick with pantiled roof on the north, has a
range of irregularly spaced mid C19 2-light casement windows with wooden hood-
moulds in Tudor style: some mid C20 replacement windows. Only some main beams
visible inside: this range was probably the whole of the earlier farmhouse.
