II*

Hall, with core of 1665, extensively added to by Goodhart Rendel in 1925-30,
with a 'U' plan house backing into the original range. The old part is of
ironstone rubble coursed and squared, with sandstone dressings, and stone
tiled roof. It displays Renaissance influence in its symmetrically arranged
2½ storey facade. 5 bays with central doorway. 3-light stone mullioned
windows on ground floor, have hoodmoulds which form a continuous string
course. 1st floor windows also stone mullions. 3 full dormers above,
with coped gables with finials, and long flat hoodmoulds to 3-light mullions.
Plinth, moulded eaves cornice and angle quoins, coped gables, and slightly
moulded stone axial and gable stacks. Additional mullioned windows in
gable walls. Goodhart Rendel's wing makes this part of a double pile range.
It is large, and its outer wings form recessed gables to either side of
this early range. They are assymmetrical: that to right, dated 1925, has
a steeply pitched and wide stone tiled roof, ironstone rubble, coursed and
squared with angle quoins. Various stone mullioned windows within this
gable, assymmetrically arranged. The masonry resembles very closely that
of the original building, but the left hand wing was made with stone from
Normanton Hall, and is differently cut and laid and dated 1926. Various
stone mullioned windows in gable end, and side elevation of 3 bays, 1½
storeys, with central canted bay window with corbelled gable above mullioned
and transomed ground floor windows, and gabled dormer with finials.
Plinth, stringcourse and eaves cornice, and decorative simple frieze over
all windows.

Entrance front is all by Goodhart Rendel, in ironstone rubble with sandstone
dressings. 1½ storeys, U-plan. Central door beneath gable has Ionic
columns and segmental,open pediment containing arms and scroll work. At
either end of it, a 4-light stone mullioned window, and to the right, a
large mullioned and transomed window, at intermediate height, with outer
king-mullions, set beneath. a gable. This gable is balanced by another
to left, and all 3 spring above the level of the eaves. Right hand wing
has higher ridge, and contains a 6-light mullioned and transomed window,
gable above left hand wing has 2-light mullioned windows and a gabled
dormer, and is coped by a acorn finials.

The house is set in a garden also laid out by Goodhart Rendel.
