The Friarage



Circa 1770 on the site of a Dominican Friary and possibly incorporating some
masonry from earlier house. Stone, stuccoed with a stone balustraded parapet with
urn finials. Hipped double span roof of large Welsh slates with two stuccoed
stacks in valley. Stone plinth. Three storeys. Entrance front of seven windows
arranged 2:3:2. Early C19 sashes with glazing bars in moulded architraves with
projecting cills. Central Victorian door with Gothic fanlight in rusticated sur-
round under prostyle Doric porch. Similar features on other elevations but
irregular back suggests more than one build. North wing, former domestic offices
and possibly older in part than main house, part rubble and part painted brick,
Victorian interior. Inside most original woodwork remains including doors and
windows with enriched architraves, elliptical arches over corridors and a good
staircase with three turned balusters to a tread, the middle one twisted, all hav-
ing crisply carved quadrooned collars with foliage to bulbs below. Dado panel-
ling. Some original plaster cornices, many restored. The Friarage was the home
of the Meynell family, prominent local recusants also active in promoting the
Stockton and Darlington Railway.
