Listing Text

10.9.54 Farnhill Hall

Manor house of C15 much altered C16 and C19. Rubble with slate roofs, hipped at right
hand end. Now of 2 storeys but originally composed of a one-storey hall with chamber
block and kitchen block at either end, in a single range. Ends of hall marked by 4
turrets, 2 on each front. The hall was lit by paired tall trefoil-headed lights, 2
pairs of which survive to right hand side of the dorway. Doorway is early C20 Gothic
but defended by a small gabled machicolated dormer. The right hand block as a blocked
2-light round-headed window to ground floor and a blocked doorway facing the hall roof
which may have served lost battlements.
At the rear the windows are all C19 or early C20 with slightly arched heads, mostly
The interior (not seen) is said to contain a large elliptical-headed fireplace and
woodwork of early C20 by Robert Thompson of Kilburn.
Although much altered, this is a rare survival of a fortified manor house built in a
single range, of which more remains to be discovered, and the building merits a high
grade in consequence.
