In the entry for the following building:-


4/207 Ongar Park Hall and
boundary walls

- 11.4.84 II

the description shall be amended to read:-

House, C15, C17 and late C19. Timber framed with red brick additions
and alterations and parts rendered or weatherboarded. Roofs of clay
plain tiles. Complex plan form all of two storeys, but wide variety
of eaves lines. The earliest surviving part of the complex comprises
a 2-storey block sited north-south with gabled plain tile roof,
rendered to the west and with white weatherboarding on the east side.
A tall, central, cruciform stack breaks through roof, west of the
ridge. The west elevation has a recessed 3-light casement, on first
floor with 6 horizontal panes. The ground floor has simple boarded
door and small window. The north elevation has mixture of C19 and C20
casements. To the north of this block is a small, black-weatherboarded
outbuilding with half hipped plain tile roof. Attached to the NE
corner of this is a single storey gault brick outhouse with clay
pantiled mono-pitch roof, short stack, iron, small pane, 2-light
casement and boarded door. To the south of the earliest block is a
taller late C19 structure with plain tile roof, gabled to the south
and hipping down to the north. This is substantially of red Flemish
bond brickwork but its NE corner is of white painted weatherboarding.
The south elevation has a tripartite double hung sash and a single
double hung sash, on each floor, all with single vertical glazing bars
and all with slightly arched heads. Substantial red brick stack on
ridge line. The east elevation has a casement with top lights on first
floor and double hung sash with single central vertical glazing bar,
on ground floor. To the west of this late C19 block is a lower 2-
storey block with continuous cat-slide roof to the north. The west
elevation is of rendered brick with parapet, 3 windows and gable end
stack. The rendered south elevation has tripartite double hung sash
windows on each floor and a single double hung sash over entrance door
with heavy stucco hood on foliate consoles. The single storey rear
(north) elevation of this range has external wall stack, a single
double hung sash with small panes in upper half, 2 small windows and
plain door. Inside, remnants survive of a, formerly, three bay timber
frame of probable C15. This has steep, arch wall braces and comprises
a 2-bay chamber, probably open to the roof with single bay chambers
at the south end. The original roof form involved hips with gablets
at each end and remnants survive, including posts and collar purlin
of a former crown post roof. A large C16 stack substantially fills the
northern bay which has traces of roof blackening within. To the north
of this is an extension bay of the C16 with internal arch wall braces
and 'open framed' tie beams against the earlier work. The wing to the
west has an integral attic and is of good quality C17 framing.
Substantial brick garden walls east and west. Surviving remnant of
Ongar Park Manor, and, early work, may be part of former Manor House
or, more likely, a substantial detached kitchen, once belonging to
this complex.
