SE33NE LS14 (north side, off),

9/34 Kiddall Hall
9.8.85 Farmhouse


Probably kitchen to Kiddall Hall (q.v.) with accommodation or granary to 1st floor,
now in agricultural use and a garage. Probably early C17, though retaining
earlier roof structure, with C20 alteration. Large coursed gritstone, Welsh
blue-slate and corrugated iron roof. L-shaped. 2 storeys. 3 bays. Elevation
facing hall has wing to right breaking forward. Quoins. Main-range: inserted
garage door; 2-light chamfered mullioned window above. To right 2 small chamfered
lights (one blocked) with 2-light window above near to junction with wing at right
angles. Coped gable to left. Lacks chimney but had a large stack originally.
Wing: quoins. Gable wall has former doorway blocked to window with 2-light
chamfered mullioned window above and small chamfered light to apex of coped gable
with kneelers. Rear of main range: inserted doorway with windows either side.
That to left has 3-light chamfered mullioned lintel. To right end 2-light
chamfered mullioned window. First floor has three 2-light chamfered mullioned
windows. Right-hand return of wing has 1st-floor doorway with depressed Tudor-
arched lintel and stop-chamfered surround approached by flight of 14 stone steps.
To left of door small chamfered light. To right, 2-light mullioned window. Gable
of main range, to right, has small chamfered light in apex. Left-hand return of
wing: 2 doorways with Tudor-arched lintels and chamfered surrounds have small
chamfered light set between and 2-light chamfered mullioned window to left.
1st floor has 2 chamfered lights.

Interior: main range: enormous chimney breast divides the 5-bay range into two and
three bays. Originally has several brick beehive ovens backing on to main fireplace
which has wide lintel (blocked). Stop-chamfered spine beams and floor joists.
First floor reveals roof of exceptional interest with raised crucks the blades
tenoned to the right. The intermediate trusses are supported on the side walls
with struts to the tie beam. Long purlins some 30' in length support comnon
rafters of one piece from ridge to wall plate. Wing: ground floor altered to
mistal. First floor has 2-bay roof with different angle-strut trusses the southern
principal morticed into the northern principal rafter each carrying 2 purlins.
The 2 doorways in the wing perhaps originally gave access to servants carrying
food from the kitchen the short distance across the yard to Kiddall Hall, and
would have faced directly the central doorway in the west wing leading through to
the screens passage of the hall.

If correctly interpreted this is a very rare and important survival of a late
medieval kitchen separate from the hall.
