2/18 Kirk Deighton Hall



Rectory, now private house. Late C18 with mid C19 alterations including the
addition of the third storey. Coursed limestone and gritstone, purple slate
roof. Plinth and rusticated quoins. 3 storeys, 5 bays, 2:1:2. Central
glazed double doors under a closed porch with Tuscan columns, deep
entablature and cornice. Flush wood architraves, projecting sills and
incised lintels to all the windows; those to the ground floor are 4-pane
sashes; the first floor has sashes with glazing bars; the second floor has
9-pane unevenly-hung sashes. Shallow blocking course with moulded coping
and a projecting band at eaves level. Hipped roof. Banded end stacks, of
stone to left, of white brick to right. 2-bay single-storey range attached
to right, not of special interest. Interior not inspected at resurvey but
said to contain a fine original staircase. Rear wing, now a separate house,
has keyed lintels to windows and C20 alterations. In 1794 the patronage of
the living was sold by Colonel Thornton to the Rev James Geldart who became
rector in 1795 and was succeeded by his son and grandson. The church (qv)
was extensively rebuilt in 1849 and these two dates may cover the period of
building at the Rectory.
