SD 95 SW (east side)
Paget Hall (No 15)


House, early C17. Rubble with stone slate roofs. Now a T-plan, but possibly with
only a rear wing originally; a heavy C19 restoration has effaced much detail.
Main block is of two storeys with a large attic, and of 2 cells, either side of
a central stair. Smaller two-storey wings to South and North. The main gable
ends are the principal fronts, each with four-lights stepped chamfered stones
mullion windows to the attic. These are original but the remainder are C19:
one of 5 lights to the ground floor, and two of three lights to the first floor
on the west, and one of 6 lights and one of five lights on the east. Other
original windows are one of two lights, now blocked, on the South face at first
floor left, and one of three lights to the rear kitchen wing. All have hood-
moulds. Three stacks. Inside: the west ground floor room has a good
elliptical-arched chamfered fireplace, the east ground floor room a
Tudor-arched, fireplace with two stones in the head. Between these rooms a
stair of C17 appearance, but possibly C19 make. The attic of the main range has
four good upper crucks, arch braced to a collar and with a short king strut into
which the principals are jointed. This carries the ridge piece and short
longitudinal braces.
