3/8 Old Hall


- II

House. C16-C17 with C18 alterations and additions and C20 restoration.
Coursed squared limestone rubble, ashlar dressings, C20 pantiles and stone
slates. A 2-storey building of 2 phases: to left of entrance a C17 1-bay
hall with 1 x 2 bays cross wing; C18 2-bay block to right of entrance.
Block to right: quoins to right; C20 glazed door in chamfered surround with
tie-stone jambs, left. C20 small-paned windows to right in original
openings with keyed lintels to ground floor and to the 2 first-floor
windows. Large brick stack opposite entrance. Hall and cross wing to left:
similar plinth and quoins. 4-light recessed chamfered mullion windows to
hall and cross wing; the hall window mullions replaced by a side-sliding
sash and the left light blocked; the cross wing window restored. Similar 3-
light windows to the first floor of both hall and cross wing, and a 2-light
attic window to the cross wing. Continuous dripmould above the ground-floor
windows, dripmould over first-floor window of wing. Rear: the north gable
wall of the cross wing is built of cobbles to ground floor and brick above;
the top of a corner post is exposed to left and there is a small blocked
opening in the gable. The rear outshut to hall and right-hand block is
obscured by C20 additions and alterations. Left return: recessed chamfered
mullion windows of 3 and 5 lights to ground floor (restored) and 3 and 3
lights above. Interior: the entrance opens onto the side of a large
fireplace facing the right-hand room. The room to left has a pyramid-
stopped spine beam; a similar beam is in the south room of the cross wing.
Between the hall and cross wing a wall plate is supported by 2 timber posts,
the framing is enclosed by panelling with a carved frieze of blind arcading
on the parlour side, continued on the inner door. There is a chimney stack-
and newel stair in the wing, dividing the parlour from the present kitchen.
The house would seem to have been built as a hall and 2 cross wings,
possibly completely timber framed. The timber framing was encased or
replaced in stone to west of a cross passage in the C17, at the same time as
a large brick chimney stack was built in the cross passage position. The
right wing was demolished and rebuilt with an C18 facade, possibly at a time
when the house was divided up into several cottages. North Yorkshire and
Cleveland Vernacular Buildings Study Group Report No 1479, 1977.
