Cononley Hall

C18, divided into 3 in 1908. The original part to the west is of coursed rubble with
stone slate roof. Three storeys. Quoins and coped gables with kneelers. The windows
have been altered and those with straight chamfers are recent replacements, but the
south (entrance) facade retains one 5-light transom window to first floor and one
5-light to second floor, and the north facade one 5 -light transom window to first
floor and one 3-light transom window to second floor; all these windows have
hoodmoulds and are double chamfered with an ovolo inner chamfer. Other windows retain
only similar reveals. The C18 house is of hammer dressed stone with a hipped slate
roof. Quoins, sill bands to ground and first floor cut modillion cornice and 2 central
chimneys. Three storeys and 3 bays. Windows with stone architraves sashes with no
glazing bars. Tuscan stone doorcase with engaged columns and pediment over arched
doorway with modern door. The return facade is of 5 bays with a pediment on consoles
over the central window of firt floor. At rear, part of wall is of ashlar and
incorporates a reset lintel with the letters RSESS arranged around the date 1628.
Interior. In the older part is a very large segmental arched fireplace with moulded
surround. In the newer part are a rich modillion cornice to the south-east room (now
subdivided) 2 doorcases with Adam style friezes, and an open string stair with 3
turned balusters per tread, curtail and moulded rail.
