Hyning Priory

(Formerly listed as St Bernard's Priory)

Country House. Central block 'newly built' in 1809 (Warton Manor Court Book),
with mid C19th right-hand wing and mid C20th left-hand wing. Sandstone ashlar,
with stuccoed wings. Dressings of left-hand wing of artificial stone. Slate
roof. Central symmetrical block of 3 bays and 2½ storeys has end stacks and
chamfered quoins. Porch of artificial stone with carved coat of arms. Ground
floor windows are tripartite sashes with glazing bars, with pilasters as jambs
and baseless Tuscan columns as mullions. 1st floor windows similar but with
plain stone surrounds. Central window over porch sashed with glazing bars in
plain stone surround. Attic windows have plain ashlar reveals and fixed
lights with glazing bars. Outer windows blank, with cornice and parapet above:
central window has semi-circular head under small pediment. Flanking wings
have hipped roofs with overhanging eaves on square brackets. Right-hand wing
has a tripartite sashed window with glazing bars in plain stone surround on
both floors. Left-hand wing has tripartite sashes which are mid-C20th copies
of windows in the central block, with Tuscan columns and pilasters. To the
left of this wing the facade of an original pavilion survives, probably one of
a pair which once flanked the main block. It has a large blank tripartite
window with plain stone surround, a string course with blank Diocletian window
above and a cyma moulded coping to the pediment. Interior much altered in the
mid C20th, with re-used panelling in the left-hand wing and a stair with open
string, barley-sugar balusters and the ground-floor newel treated as a
Corinthian column.
