TM 27 NE
- Whittingham Hall

House. Dated 1653 on brick tablet in gable of late C19 porch, but possibly
earlier. Red brick, laid in English bond, with a roof of mid C20 plaintiles.
2 storeys and attics. A long central range with flanking projecting cross-
wings; another wing extends to the rear. Casement windows with square-leaded
panes, mainly of C18 date. In the left wing 2 C17 2-light windows with
moulded frames; 2 similar early windows to the rear. Central gabled porch
with 6-panel door (the upper 2 panels glazed); the upper part of the
architrave is carved and has been re-used from elsewhere. Shaped gables to
the wings with circular attic windows: the left gable and the entire right
gable end rebuilt mid C20. One flat-roofed dormer and 2 internal stacks, the
earlier one above the porch. Originally this range was a principal
outbuilding of the former manor house of Whittingham Hall which stood within
the large moated enclosure to the north. The left wing and adjoining part of
the central range still exist as a barn, used as ancillary accommodation to
the house. There is a good ground floor wooden fireplace with bolection
moulding and carved frieze.
