TL 97 NE HEPWORTH NORTH COMMON

1/9 Reeves Hall (previously
14.7.55 listed as Green Farmhouse)

GV II


Former farmhouse, now a residential school. Mid C16 and C17. 2 storeys: 3-
cell main range in 5 bays, jettied along front, formerly with a cross-entry,
now with a lobby-entrance; 2-cell secondary range on north-east, with internal
chimney-stack. Timber-framed and rendered, with black glazed pantiled roofs.
The internal chimney-stack of the main range has a rebuilt shaft in Jacobean
style with recessed panels. The jetty is supported by small solid brackets.
Small-paned casement windows to both ranges. 6-panel door, with raised
fielded panels. The interior has good framing exposed: the 2-bay central room
has very heavy main cross-beams with a 3" chamfer and triangle stops, and a
plain cambered fireplace lintel. A blocked original doorway in the front wall
indicates the former cross-entry, and a single post in the end wall has
housing for the 2 service doorways. On the other side of the stack, the
parlour has a boxed-in beam, and a fireplace with a 4-centred brick arch: a
similar, but smaller, fireplace is in the principal bedroom. On upper floor,
one original window with diamond mullions in situ, and evidence for others.
Trusses with cambered tie-beams and cranked braces. Roof, originally hipped,
but later gabled, with plain square crown-posts braced to the collor purlins
only. The later extension has some reused timbers; main beam with ovolo-
moulding; roof with clasped purlins. This was one of the 2 manor houses of
Hepworth.
