Whittingham Hall

Manor house, subsequently farmhouse, now house. Probably earlier C17, much
altered. Roughcast handmade brick on stone plinth, slate roof. Three
bays, with projecting porch-cum-stairturret in centre, 2 small turrets at
rear, various additions to left end and rear. Two storeys; wide 2-storey
gabled porch has modern glazed and panelled door offset to right, inner
porch with wide Tudor-arched inner doorway of oak, the lintel with an apex
nick continued as an incised cross, studded board with ornamental strap
hinges; stairlight windows on 2 levels, the 1st offset left and the other
above the door, both sashed. All other windows are 12-pane sashes: to left
2 on each floor, to right one at ground floor and 2 above; in right gable
one on each floor. Left gable has an extruded chimney stack, and continued
to left is a large single-storey extension. Rear: middle bay flanked by
narrow full-height gabled turrets (perhaps formerly garderobes), 3rd bay
has rear-wall chimney; most of rear covered by large 2-storey lean-to.
Interior: 1st bay has very large beam at end wall, like a hearth
bressummer, and timber-framed partition wall with wattle exposed; ground
floor room in 3rd bay said to have honeycomb-pattern coffered ceiling of
carved beams, now concealed; dog-legged staircase with closed string,
fielded panel newels, moulded handrail, panelled dado, but lacking
balusters; roof of 5 kingpost trusses with curved struts, the east part
apparently double-tiered, with a ceiling above the lower tie beams, which
are chamfered.
