Lane Head House
SE 23 NW 6/634


Probably built as the steward's house for Esholt Estate, circa 1710-20. A fine
substantial house of 3 storeys regularly coursed grit stone with a 5 bay south front.
Extended circa 1800 and with 1911 rebuilding of west front. Apparently originally
of 2 storeys heightened mid C18. Chamfered quoins to ground and first floors, quoin
pilasters to top floor. Moulded sill courses and deeply moulded modillion bracket
eaves cornice. Hipped stone slate roof. Tall cavetto corniced chimneys. Tall
windows to ground and first floors with architrave surrounds and central doorway of
similar proportions in same surround with cornice. The top floor has square windows
in architraves, the central one with scrolled head and keystone and shallow apron
carried down to sill course. Late C18 glazing bar sashes. The east return is of
2 original bays with circa 1800 extension with large square surround windows, glazing
altered. Modern ground floor extension. The extension has been altered in
conversion to flats. The design of the south front relates to Esholt Hall itself
and possibly the same person, Joseph Pope of Farnley, was involved.
