SJ 68 SW WALTON C.P. WALTON HALL PARK

6/60 Walton Hall

II

Hall 1836-8 altered and extended 1869-70, of stone-dressed brown brick
with graded slate roofs. The garden (east) front of 2½ storeys and 2
wide bays is almost symmetrical with 2 crow-stepped gables, and
pinnacled octagonal buttresses at centre and each corner. The lower
storey has a canted bay window, right, and a square one, left, both of
stone with ovolo mullions. There are 3 windows (1-light: 2-lights:
1-light) above each bay window and a lancet to the attic in each
gable.

The entrance front (right) of 2½ storeys and 4 bays is asymmetrical:
broad, windowless, projecting gable, left; narrow 2-storey recessed
bay with windows; projecting 2-storey porch with shaped double doors
of oak (each with 11 panels) in 4-centred arched opening of stone with
semicircular stone oriel above; right bay with recessed upper storey.
A 4-stage clock tower to the right (circa 1870), with stone
clock-stage surmounted by shaped lead-roofed cupola and large
weather-vane, is linked to the Hall by a screen wall with blank Tudor
windows. The left front, much altered, contains an ornate mullioned
and transomed staircase window with leaded glazing and some stained
glass; leading is removed from most windows on all fronts.

Interior. The hall is panelled in oak, has a quasi- Elizabethan
moulded plaster ceiling and round-arched double doors of great height
and heavy treatment to the stair. Oak stair with divided return
flights. Large heavily decorated panelled doors to upper rooms. The
Brobdignagian joinery of circa 1870 contrasts with the lightly-handled
gold and white plaster panels probably of 1838 to the shaped ceiling
above the staircase.
