6/31 Chippenhall Hall
-- II

Manor farmhouse. C16 and C17, in 3 or 4 phases. Timber framed and plastered,
with colourwashed brick to the ground floor of the facade. Pantiled roof with
glazed black tiles at the front. 2 storeys and attic. A central hall range
with flanking cross-wings; to the rear of the left cross-wing is a former
dairy range. 4 windows, C19 and mid C20 3-light casements: the later windows
are on the first floor and have square-leaded panes. C19 hood moulds. C19
doorway with inset 4-panel door, rectangular fanlight, pilasters, frieze and
cornice. Axial stacks to each cross-wing and an external stack to the rear of
the hall range. The left or parlour cross-wing is C16 and has good exposed
timbering with some closely-spaced studding;-part of the forwardmost bay has
been lost; the stack in the rear bay is a later insertion. The early C17
former dairy range was originally detached: it now has 2 bays but originally
extended further to the rear; evidence for large diamond-mullioned first floor
windows, now infilled with later studding; queen post roof. The remainder of
the house is early-mid C17, in 2 phases, with much of the structure exposed.
Good early-mid C17 dog-leg stair with turned balusters and square newel posts
with ball finials. The hall has a re-used heavy bridging beam and 2 ovolo-
moulded doorways, one of which probably once gave access to a stair. The
stack in the right wing is partly composed of unfired brick (cf. Holly Tree
Farmhouse, Cratfield).
