11/59 Hormead Hall


Manor house. C16, hall floored and house renovated in C17 with kitchen
wing at NW, rear wing altered and dormers added in C20. Timber frame
plastered, with steep red tile roofs. A long 2-storeys house facing S
with cellar under E end. S front has 3 windows and a half glazed door in
a trelliswork porch. 3-light small paned casements. Canted bay. 2 large
hipped dormers at eaves give more light to the 1st floor partly in the
roof. Tall red brick chimney a third from E end with separate octagonal
shafts and moulded caps in line across ridge, and 2 similar shafts to
rectangular external W gable chimney. Internally the W room has lower
floor level and axial joists suggesting it was added possibly in C17.
Central part of 3 bays, now a passage and hall, has 2 cross beams and
paired axial beams staggered in line, of a floor inserted in the former
open hall and service bay. There is an edge-halved scarf joint in the
front wallplate, and a tie beam across the W face of the chimney put in
when the tie-beam of the open-truss of the hall was cut back to the
wallplates. At the NE corner of the hall an old door with moulded jambs,
3-centred doorhead and carved spandrels leads to the E parlour with
cellar below. This has a fine stone moulded fire surround with
4-centred arch and spandrels carved with heraldic shields probably of
John Delawood and his wife Katherine. The tall chamber over the hall has
an C18 iron basket grate. A moated site. Centre of Redeswall Manor.
(RCHM (1911)102 No. 2: VCH (1914)69, 72).
