11/306 Lordington House
Large house. The remaining part of a house of 1623, possibly built on the foundations of an earlier house of c1500 which belonged to the De La Pole family and in which Cardinal De La Pole was born. Some Tudor brickwork remains in the external walls but the house is otherwise of 1623 with C18 roof and window openings, 1845 kitchen wing and was extensively remodelled in 1895 by Admiral Sir Phipps Hornby who demolished part of the building and it was refenestrated and the main door replaced in the mid C20 by Geoffrey Jellicoe. Built of flint with red brick quoins and window dressings, some C16 and C17, hipped tiled roof and brick chimneystacks. Two storeys attics and part basement with four windows and two dormers facing south and three windows and two dormers facing east. L-shaped building. Ogee-shaped dormers added in 1895. Twelve pane sashes are mid C20 replacements, as is Queen Anne style doorcase with curved hood in south wall of long range. Brick stringcourse. The principal internal feature is the main staircase constructed c1895 with C19 newel posts but reusing early C17 components which may have been salvaged from the demolished wing. These comprise five carved finials of heraldic beasts and monsters sitting upright and holding shields, a lion, a dragon, a bear, a unicorn with a crown and chain and a griffin. The heavy handrail is moulded and closed below by single pierced carvings of scroll ornament, swags of fruit and drapeJ:y which have been positioned upside-down. The topmost panel is a cherub which was originally designed to be set at an angle. The Drawing Room oak panelling is of early C18 style with inbuilt alcoves but is probably of c1895. There are some late C19 marble bolection moulded fireplaces and a mahogany water closet. The roof is C18 with collar beam, staggered purlins and pegged rafters. The cellars contain a C17 chamfered beam. There is a servants staircase of c1845. A drawing of 1791 shows Lordington House before the south wing was demolished. [See Pevsner BOE Sussex p312.
