8/30 The Bailiff's House
House: early C17 but extensively renovated late C20. Partly tooled
ashlar, partly rubble sandstone. Kerridge stone-slate roof and small
stone chimney. Long rectangular plan. 3-storey 5-bay front in
ashlar. Slightly protruding base. Ovolo-moulded 2-light windows on
ground and 1st floor, smaller 2-light windows with ovolo-moulded
mullions stopped at top and bottom. 3-storey, 6-bay south front is in
rubble with large quoins. Similar windows though some partly
restored, and one copied. At the centre is an added gabled porch with
a reset moulded stone doorcase and a modern door. At the right end is
a flight of stone steps parallel to the house and an inserted doorway
at 1st floor.
Interior: no original features survive except for roof trusses of
tiebeam with pairs of diagonal struts.
This is an unusual building with a very regular fenestration. It must
have had a special function, perhaps as the forest courthouse or as
the home for an officer of Delamere Forest.
