The Moot House
- II
House. Mid- to late C18 with C17 remains. Rendered brick with slate
roof. Two storeys with attic. Symmetrical facade, added in C18 to
earlier building, has one-bay pedimented cross-wings on each side of
recessed one-bay centre. Windows sashed with glazing bars. Wings have
Venetian windows on ground floor and tripartite windows with sill band
above. All have columns as mullions and pilaster reveals, with fluted
necking. Within the pediments are Diocletian windows. The right-hand one
is blind, as the pediment is carried up in front of the earlier roof line as
a screen. In the centre on the first floor is a window with architrave and
round head. On the ground floor the two wings are joined by a bowed porch
supported on two columns, with engaged columns as responds. The door, of
nine raised and fielded panels, has a pilaster doorcase with a fanlight
above a fluted frieze. Chimneys at left, and behind ridge to left of right-
hand wing. In the rear wall there is a Venetian window similar to those at
the front. Interior: dog-leg stair in three flights has open string, stick
balusters, and swept handrail. Rear room of right-hand wing has a beam with
chamfer stops of C17 type and a C17 built-in cupboard.
