6/51 Yockenthwaite Hall
with attached
10.9.54 outbuilding and
garden wall and
gate to front


Large house with attached outbuildings and front wall and gate. Mid-late
C18. Coursed squared gritstone, ashlar dressings, graduated stone slate
roof. 2 storeys, 4 bays with attached lower 2-bay outbuilding to left.
House: raised quoins; 6 fielded panels to door, bay 3, in eared architrave
with pulvinated frieze and modillioned pediment; casement windows in sawn
stone surrounds throughout; moulded eaves cornice; gable copings; banded
stacks to each end and to ridge between bays 1 and 2. Range to left: board
door with plain shouldered surround, window to right (ground and first
floor) and inserted garage doors left. Low garden wall to front of 4 to 5
courses of gritstone, with flat coping; railings replaced. The gate is
probably C19, reusing fine wrought ironwork probably contemporary with the
house; it has C and S scrolls with leaves and a flower motif. Interior of
house: central narrow entrance hall, large stair hall at rear of 2 straight
flights, ramped handrail and plain balusters, panelled reveals to
staircase window. Ceiling cornice to entrance and stair hall, and to main
ground-floor room, left, which has a fine pine and plaster fireplace in
Adam style with fluted pilasters, plaque with lion and vine scroll in
relief, black marble inner surround with multicoloured stone fan, a cast-
iron basket grate with flanking panels decorated with classical masks,
bucrania and tripods with figures. The dado rail is of carved moulded
wood. The rear rooms of the house are the large kitchen (left) with stone
fireplace and cast-iron range, and the larder or dairy to right of stair
hall, with recesses and meat hooks. The door surround is very similar to
that at Buckden House (q.v.).
