AKENHAM
TM 14 NE
8/3 Akenham Hall
9.12.55
- II
House, formerly manor house. Late C18, with a rear range of mid C17 with
fragmentary mediaeval core. 2 storeys, 3 windows. Timber-framed and pebble-
dashed on a tarred brick plinth. Hipped plaintiled roofs with internal
chimneys of red brick. A complete C18 facade in the Gothick manner: sash
windows with pointed arched heads; the upper sashes have thick glazing bars in
the form of intersecting tracery (a similar but smaller window over the
entrance has an ogee head). C18 entrance doorway: 6-panelled door and an
entablature on pilasters, the open pediment has within it a semi-circular
fanlight with curved bars. The rear range has typical C17 plain framing and 2
ovolo-mullioned windows. Within the left-hand cell are a pair of posts and
other fragments from an open hall, but this building was otherwise destroyed
during the C17 reconstruction. The front range has modest but quite complete
late C18 joinery.
