1/119 Bradley Hall Golfclub House
Manor house, now golf club. 1598 probably by the Akroyds as an addition to a house
of 1577 for Sir John Savile. Dressed stone, with stone slate roof. The existing two
storey range, of considerable length, has been obscured by later accretions. Only the
gables return anything of the original building. The north gable has spectacular
5 sided bay window of 2 storeys, semi-octagonal in plan with cross windows on the front
and canted sides and one light on the square return sides. Each light is slightly
rebated and has a hollow chamfer. Hoodmould over ground floor bay window continues
over 10-light mullioned and transomed window (6 lights blocked) which has chamfered
surround and hollow chamfer to each light. Over is a 5-light similar window with
hoodmould South gable has tall blocked windows with hoodmould over to both floors, and
small doorway also blocked and obscured by later stack. Rear wall appears to be blind
but has at one time had a cart entry. Two small stacks to ridge.
A much disfigured but important survival of work by the Savile masons. Fragments of
a rose window and a datestone of 1598 also survive loose in grounds. L. Amber; 'The
