4/110 End sections of 2 out-
8.4.86 buildings at Kiveton
Hall Farm each having
twin oeil-de-boeuf and
facing Kiveton Lane


End sections of 2 outbuildings. Probably c1700. For the Kiveton Park estate
of the Dukes of Leeds. Rubble limestone and red brick, stone slate and pantile
roofs. Each of 1 storey and 1 bay. Both end walls have a stone plinth with plinth
band surmounted by quoined brick panel having twin oeil-de-boeuf blind with keyed
ashlar surrounds; C20 casement inserted above plinth of right-hand outbuilding.
Both have eaves cornices beneath hipped roofs, that on left with stone slates
and pantiled returns, that on right with stone slate eaves courses to pantiles.
Interiors: contemporary roof structures of principal-rafter truss form. Most
significant remains of the layout of Kiveton Park built from 1698 and associated
with the architect William Talman. Oeil-de-boeuf openings are not regarded as
part of the vocabulary of Talman and measured drawings of the house by James Gibbs
show the house is not drawn from Talman's work. Rear sections of each outbuilding
and attached farmbuildings of later date not of special interest.

John Harris, William Talman: Maverick Architect, 1982, pp 25-26 and plates 14
and 17.
