HARTFIELD Bolebroke Castle
(formerly listed as
TQ 43 NE 5/90 26.11.53
C16. Red brick (English bond). The east front has 4 small gables of 3
storeys each and one large gable at the north end of 4 storeys. The latter
has kneelers, the south one corbelled with an octagonal finial above, the
north one meeting an octagonal buttress carried up from the ground and
terminating in a round finial. Diamond or lozenge shaped finial above the
apex of the gable. The return of this gable on the north side is similar
but a modern bay window has been built out in front of it. Windows on
the east front in stone surrounds with stone mullions and in 5 of them
also transoms. The south front has a similar gable with a ball finial
above the apex but no finials above the kneelers. Windows as on the east
front in stone surrounds with stone mullions and in 5 of them also transoms.
The south front has a similar gable with a ball finial above the apex but
no finials above the kneelers. Windows as on the east front. Late C17
L-shaped west wing of red brick and grey headers. Modern additions to
the north and south of this.
The inside has apparently been modernised but in a room facing west, presumably
the original kitchen, is an enormous fireplace with a depressed stone arch.
