1/27 Worsley Court
House (formerly
listed under
29/7/66 Worsley Road)

Court house, now public function suite. 1849. For the 1st
Earl of Ellesmere. Timber-framed structure with slate roof.
The consciously picturesque massing centres round a large
hall with various lower wings all of 1 storey. Projecting
stone plinth and vertically studded framing which has
decorative square panelling in the numerous gables. The tall
gable of the hall is flanked by smaller gabled wings which
project forward. Between them a loggia and balustrade form a
porchway to the studded door which is off-centre and has a
Tudor-arched moulded surround. Windows are generally of 3 to
6-lights with ovolo-moulded timber mullions, leaded
casements and some with transoms. The gables have decorative
barge boards and finials. Projecting wing to left with large
stone chimney stack. The right of the hall has a massive
projecting stone chimney stack which is terminated at the
top by a pyramidal roof to a tower-like feature in an
Italianate style. Adjacent to it is the principal window
which is a 6-light gabled oriel with mullions and transoms.
The library which adjoins to rear is not included in this
entry. The revival of timber-framing in 1849 is a
particularly early occurence and is one of a handful in the
Worsley area.
