YORK ROAD (north side, off)
Kiddal Hall Farmhouse

[Formerly listed as Kiddall Hall Farmhouse, Potterton, LS14, YORK ROAD (north side, off), BARWICK IN ELMET AND SCHOLES]




Probably kitchen to Kiddal Hall (q.v.) with accommodation or granary to first floor, now in agricultural use and a garage. Probably early C17, though retaining earlier roof structure, with C20 alteration. Large coursed gritstone, Welsh blue-slate and corrugated iron roof. L-shaped. Two storeys. Three bays. Elevation facing hall has wing to right breaking forward. Quoins.

Main-range: inserted garage door; two-light chamfered mullioned window above. To right two small chamfered lights (one blocked) with two-light window above near to junction with wing at right angles. Coped gable to left. Lacks chimney but had a large stack originally.

Wing: quoins. Gable wall has former doorway blocked to window with two-light chamfered mullioned window above and small chamfered light to apex of coped gable with kneelers.

Rear of main range: inserted doorway with windows either side. That to left has three-light chamfered mullioned lintel. To right end two-light chamfered mullioned window. First floor has three two-light chamfered mullioned windows. Right-hand return of wing has first-floor doorway with depressed Tudor-arched lintel and stop-chamfered surround approached by flight of 14 stone steps. To left of door small chamfered light. To right, two-light mullioned window. Gable of main range, to right, has small chamfered light in apex. Left-hand return of wing: two doorways with Tudor-arched lintels and chamfered surrounds have small chamfered light set between and two-light chamfered mullioned window to left. First floor has two chamfered lights.

Interior: main range: enormous chimney breast divides the five-bay range into two and three bays. Originally has several brick beehive ovens backing on to main fireplace which has wide lintel (blocked). Stop-chamfered spine beams and floor joists. First floor reveals roof of exceptional interest with raised crucks the blades tenoned to the right. The intermediate trusses are supported on the side walls with struts to the tie beam. Long purlins some 30' in length support common rafters of one piece from ridge to wall plate. Wing: ground floor altered to mistal. First floor has two-bay roof with different angle-strut trusses the southern principal morticed into the northern principal rafter each carrying two purlins. The two doorways in the wing perhaps originally gave access to servants carrying
food from the kitchen the short distance across the yard to Kiddal Hall, and would have faced directly the central doorway in the west wing leading through to the screens passage of the hall.

If correctly interpreted this is a very rare and important survival of a late medieval kitchen separate from the hall.
