23/32 Blackburn Hall
GV II* *
Manor House. Part-medieval, remodelled and enlarged 1635. For
Elizabeth Hutton of Marske-in-Swaledale who married into the Blackburn
family. Rubble with crude quoins, stone slate roof. Cross-wing thought
to be medieval with main range of 1635 at right angles to right, giving
L-shaped plan. Outshut in angle contains stairs. 3 storeys. Chamfered
mullioned windows under dripmoulds of pediment form. 1635 range has
two 3-light windows on first floor, on ground floor one 2-light window
and on right a doorway with chamfered stone jambs, 4-centred arch head
and boarded door. Kneeler and ashlar coping on right. 2 ridge stacks,
at left end and centre, the latter inscribed '--1635'. Front gable end
of cross-wing has a 3-light window on each floor and chimney on apex.
Rear elevation of 1635 range has a 3-light window and added canted bay
on ground floor and 2-light window on first floor. Right hand gable
wall of 1635 range has a mullioned window on all floors. Left return of
cross-wing has 5 mullioned windows and plain doorway with C18 4-panelled
door. Interior: entry to 1635 range leads behind fireplace which has
roll-moulding on arris and 4-centred arch with keystone; in spandrels
'EH' and 'B 1635'. Cambered beams to first floor. Stone stairs in
straight flight in outshut. The earlier range is thought to be of
medieval date, and probably the lodgings for the canons of Bridlington
Priory who administered the church. The house became the Nether Hall of
West Grinton Manor, which was acquired by the Blackburn family of
Richmond and Swaledale in the C17. 'NYCVBSG Report', No 662.
