of West Hall Fold


Group of houses now 3 dwellings. C17 and C18, partly with C15 core.
Internal timber-framing; sandstone, partly coursed, partly rubble;
brick to part of rear; Welsh slate and stone slate roofs. Irregular
H-shaped group. West Hall: 2 storeys with attic. Three 1st-floor
windows with lower 2-storey wing to front right and additional single-
storey single-window bay to right end. Single-storey block to rear of
centre forms link to a 2-storey building which has lean-to and gabled
additions to its rear and forms 2 dwellings.

West Hall: large quoins. Quoined doorway with panelled double door and
4-pane overlight. Flanking windows have projecting sills, 24-pane sashes
and flat arches; similar windows to 1st floor. Rubble-walled wing to
front right is of earlier character: small casements in return walls;
door in right return; gable with ledge and 2 blocked openings beneath
truncated brick end stack. Ashlar gable copings and renewed brick end
stacks to main house. Bay to right end has stone slate roof; adjoining
farmbuilding to right (not of special interest).

Rear of West Hall: partly brick-walled; truncated stone buttress at
junction with lower end-bay.

Building to rear: rubble-walled; openings mostly altered. North-facing
gable has irregular quoining embedded in lower wall; brick gable with
exposed head of wall post and fragment of roof truss. Stone slate roof
with end stacks.

Interior of West Hall: C18 part has contemporary central staircase;
pedimented niche. in left ground-floor room. Attic with 3 hybrid roof
trusses: curved principals with apexes triangulated in the form of
king-post trusses. End wall of single-storey bay retains wall-posts,
straight braces and cambered tie-beam; heads of another pair of wall posts
with tie beam exposed at mid-point of bay; king-post trusses of light
scantling visible in roof void.

Building to rear: not fully inspected. Encases a timber-framed structure
of which 2 bays appear to remain. Original roof structure with cross-braced
crown posts: one truss remaining intact has cambered tie beam; middle truss
of same type now obscured by stack; end truss mutilated. A very rare
survival of its type in this region.
