SE 26 SE (west side, off)

1/51 Outbuilding approximately
10 metres north of Newton
Hall Farmhouse


House or oven house, now outbuilding. C16 and later. Large gritstone
blocks and coursed gritstone rubble, graduated stone slate roof. Single
storey, of 2 bays, with a cellar below the eastern bay. South face:
inserted doorway with board door and wooden lintel obscured by single-storey
passage from the house. 2-light recessed chamfered mullion window to right;
similar 2-light window lights the cellar, far right. A very large stepped
external stack to left gable with a stone gutter and water spout on each
side approximately 2.5 metres above the ground. Corniced shaft and 2 flues.
Right return (east gable): 5 steps up to central board door, inserted into
former 3-light recessed chamfered mullion window; flanking chamfered cellar
windows partly obscured by ground surface. A small stone shield is built
into the apex of the gable. North face: the doorway to right of centre is
segmental-arched and has chamfered quoins and large lintel. An inserted
doorway, now blocked, far left with 2 quoined straight joins indicating the
position of a chimney stack to left of centre. An irregularly shaped panel
of brickwork to right is pierced by a segmental-arched window. Interior:
the western stack serves a large cambered-arched fireplace with joggled
voussoirs and the remains of a brick-lined oven in the north-west corner; 2
set pots are built into the fireplace. The building is divided by a timber-
framed stud and plaster partition with steps down to the cellar at the south
end. A large stone in the north wall of the room over the cellar may be the
lintel of a fireplace; the wall is thickened and contains a flue. The 2
roof trusses stand on tie beams set on wall plates; the principal rafters
are linked by a thin collar and the 2 tiers of purlins are trenched into the
backs. The large stack was probably a free standing structure against the
gable wall of a C16 timber-framed building. The stone walls replaced the
timber framing in the early C17 and a second chimney was built to serve the
eastern room. The flue is clean and it is thought to have possibly been as
hiding place. The size of the west stack in proportion to the rest of the
building suggests that in the C17 the building served as a bakehouse or
kitchen to Newton Hall; the timber-framed structure may have been a much
larger building but no evidence for this survives. North Yorkshire and
Cleveland Vernacular Buildings Study Group Report No 104 (1975).
