1/18 Old Hall

- II

House. Early C17. 3 storeys. Timber-framed and rendered; 2-span roof, the
western half plaintiled, the eastern with pantiles. 2 identical chimney-
stacks are set externally on the east wall : Tudor brick; stepped sides,
rebuilt shafts; possibly incorporating garderobes on the upper storey. A
rendered and pantiled single-storey lean-to addition along the east side
enclosing the bases of the chimney-stacks. Ovolo-moulded cross windows to
both ground and first storeys; ovolo-moulded mull ioned windows to second
storey. The interior retains some original panelling. A high-quality
structure, possibly intended as a hunting-lodge. It is said to be a fragment
of a much larger house built by the Barrow family, the last of whom, Maurice
Barrow, died in 1666, but there is no structural evidence of this, and the
present building seems complete in itself.
