6/2 Upp Hall
Country house. Late C16 or C17, restored and extended c1896.
Red brick with steep old red tile roofs. The older front range

service end of a house which originally extended to the N beyond
the hall (possibly an older building subsequently demolished).
The house faces W and the N room (the hall now dining room) has a
rear lateral chimney and ovolo-moulded beams. It was probably
entered by a screens passage on the S, in line with the
present front entrance. To the S a kitchen (reception) with a
wide fireplace at its S end, and a further large unheated service
room to the S of it (drawing room). To the E of this room a rear
service room, and to the E of the hall a staircase wing. W front
has a moulded brick floor-band and eaves band with 3 long, 6-
light, mullioned and transomed windows to each floor and 2 large
gables with linked gable parapets, circular recess in apex over
3-light mullioled window. Floor band steps up over entrance door
below left hand gable. Battended door in 4-centre arched wooden
frame under label and brick pediment. Small 3-light window over
door. 2-storeys canted bay window on right hand return added
c1909. Extension 2-storeys in brick and tile with 3-light
casement windows and gable parapets. Hipped dormers to attics to
rear. Interior has exotic fittings - in dining room panelling
