20.9.66 Boothby Manor House

G.V. I

Incorrectly shown on OS map as Bothby Hall. Camera block of
manor house. Late C12 with C16 alterations, C17 addition, C19
minor alterations. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar quoins
and dressings, Collyweston slate roof. T-plan, the rear wing
probably a C17 addition. The camera block is all that remains of
a complex of buildings forming the medieval manor house. The
first floor hall and solar set above a vaulted 2 chambered
undercroft. 2 storey with garret, 3 bay front having external
stairs to first floor hall door, short pilaster, and chamfered
eaves course. Central chamfered doorway with corbelled lintel
with to left a square opening. To right a second blocked
doorway. These openings have relieving arches. To first floor
is a semi-circular headed and chamfered doorway, with chamfered
and reeded imposts and hood with tightly curled stops. To right
a C16 4 light window, pointed heads to the lights with concave
moulded rectangular surround and hood. To right a C12 2 light
window having chamfered surround, round heads to the lights and
slender facetted mullion with plain capitals. Above the plain
tympanum a chamfered hood mould. To the left gable a C19 planked
door with segmental head occupies the position of an earlier
opening marked by the relieving arch above. To the first floor a
C12 2 light window and to the right a second similar window,
repositioned to light the inserted staircase. To both gable ends
are a chamfered string course with tall rectangular light above
in chamfered surround. At the rear is the projecting added C17
wing now with C19 planked door and casements, and to the main
range are 2 blocked C12 openings, a buttress and fine ashlar
chimney breast terminating in a gabled square base to slender C12
circular stack with roll moulded top. In the roof a C19 2 light
gabled dormer with rendered cheeks. Interior. The undercroft
consists of 2 chambers, one of 2 bays with quadripartite
chamfered vaults, springing from splayed corbels. The other
having a barrel vault. On the first floor a magnificent C12
rounded back fireplace with massive ashlar hood having joggled
lintel supported on a pair of chamfered corbels, with above a
rolled and filleted string. In the wall to the right a
triangular headed cupboard and round headed corbelled doorway.
In the chamber beyond the C12 window has a stone seat and a C19
doorway to the rear wing. The C16 ceilings, inserted into the
open hall, have chamfered girders with ogee stops. The hall has
been divided into 2 rooms and a C19 staircase by C16 timber frame
partitions with heavy oak studs. The clasped purlin roof is C19.
The house was probably built for the de Boothby family and later
occupied by the Paynelle family. It is a rare survival of a
Norman Manor House. A new house has built nearby in c.1630, and
the Manor House has been uninhabited since early C20. Source:
