THRESHFIELD MAIN STREET
9/112 The Manor House.
House. Late C17, rebuilt mid-late C19. Coursed gritstone and ashlar.
Formerly 3, now 2 storeys, 3 x 3 bays. Quoins. South front: central
projecting storeyed porch, probably rebuilt from the earlier house. It has
heavily moulded jambs and a triangular head under the moulding to the
doorway; oversailing first floor with square recess and 4-light mullion and
transom window returned with 1 light to left and right; a wheel window with
inner and outer circle of 6 lights above; 2 moulded courses and a small
segmental window in the gable. Flanking ground-and first-floor 4-pane
sashes in projecting surrounds; the facade to left and right of the porch
has blocked openings to ground, first and second floors. Left return: the
C19 main facade has central glazed door in plain surround with cornice and
scrolled plaque with house name; flanking ground and first-floor 4-pane
sashes; end stack left and to ridge, right, in line with windows.
Interior not seen at resurvey. The south front of the late C17 was
probably gabled, with mullion and transom windows flanking the porch; the
entrance porch probably had the wheel window directly above the doorway
(cf. East Riddlesden Hall, Keighley, and Manor Farmhouse, Hartwith,
Nidderdale.) and the remodelling was probably done when the main facade of
the house changed to the west in the C19.
