Village hall. 1895-6 by Richard Norman Shaw for Robert Martin. Snecked
dressed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; machine-tiled roof with
overhanging bracketted eaves, gable-end parapets and ashlar ridge stack
with moulded capping. Cruciform plan with main range aligned north/south
and having small wings to west and east and also east porch. Single storey
with dormers and chamfered plinth. Windows all have leaded lights. Main east
elevation: main part to south of wing has a 6-light chamfered mullioned window
with a king mullion and transom on the right side of the porch. There are
three flat-roofed dormers with moulded cornices and 6-light wood mullioned
windows with a transom; the outer lights are canted. The east porch has a
shallow-pitched gabled lead roof with a segmental headed gable-end parapet,
each end of which is swept upwards and which is surmounted by a ball finial.
There is a moulded plinth and impost band and a wide round-headed moulded arch-
way interrupted by large alternating voussoirs in the manner of a Gibbs surround.
There is a small rectangular light in the left side of the porch. To the north
of the wing is a 2-light chamfered mullioned window and a doorway with a 4-
centred head. The east wing has a large 6-light chamfered mullioned window in
its gable end with a king mullion and a transom. On the lintel of the window
is written, "ERECTED BY ROBERT MARTIN IN THE YEAR 1896", and there is a blank
square datestone in the gable apex. At the south gable end is a central buttress
flanked by tall 3-light mullioned windows divided into nine lights by two transoms.
In the north gable end is a rectangular light and also a 6-light window similar
to those in the east elevation; above in the gable apex is a 4-light and a 2-light
mullioned window. (Saint, A: Richard Norman Shaw, London, 1976; BoE, p 233).
