10/85 Oughtibridge Hall
Farmhouse. Probably C16 core, encased in stone later, altered C19.
Some internal timber framing, coursed, squared gritstone, crosswing to
left partly rubble gritstone and brick, coated stone slate roof.
H-shaped plan with crosswing to right extended forward, an additional
gabled extension projects from right return with a single-storey lean-to
to its rear in angle with wing. 1½ storey hall, 2 storey crosswings,
5 bays, Farmyard front: crosswing to left has exposed timber wall posts
to each side. Board door to right with gritstone lintel, to left a small
casement and stone steps to stone landing and first floor door, another
very small casement adjacent to head of right wall post. Vertically
boarded gable. Central hall block: plinth. Blocked quoined doorway to
left, now window. Another blocked doorway, now window, to right in
square-faced surround, to its left a C20 casement. Upper wall
weatherboarded, 2 C20 single-pitch roofed dormers at eaves, truncated
ashlar ridge-stack to left. Crosswing to right: plinth, large quoins.
Central French window with adjoining casement lights all under single
lintel, to first floor a large C19 2-light window with central mullion
and casements. Left eaves lower, plain kneelers and gable copings.
Projecting stack to right with moulded string, renewed shaft. Extension
projecting to right: rendered, C20 casement to ground floor, single
chamfered light above, gable copings. Rear: largely altered. Central
block: Plinth. C20 door to left with flanking casements and overlight.
Another blocked doorway to right with former 4-light double-chamfered
mullion window now with 1 mullion and casements, dripstone. Upper wall
weatherboarded, similar eaves dormers to front. Interior: hall block
has large transverse beam supporting 2 spine beams to its right. Springing
from the wall adjacent to this tranverse beam is a curved moulded brace
which continues into the chamber above and describes a complete arc beneath
the tie beam, the spandrels infilled with studs; presumably a form of
decorative open-hall truss. Left cross-wing upper floor, now disused,
retains vertical stud infill to side walls and gables, 2 interior sets
of wall posts with principal-rafter trusses showing evidence of infill.
Windbraces to single purlins. Right cross-wing retains timber framework
now largely obscured. Weatherboarding to upper walls of hall block said
to conceal timber studding and early windows, Farmbuildings attached to
left crosswing not of special interest.
