Listing Text


4/162 Thornley Hall
13.2.67 (formerly listed as Thornley Hall,
Garden Wall in front of Thornley
Hall and Gateposts at Thornley


House, early C18th with C17th remains, much altered. Rendered rubble with
slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. Facade has quoins with channeled
rustication, continuous drip courses over ground and 1st floor windows, and
a cyma moulded cornice gutter. The porch is gabled with a coping and 2
balls and a chamfered outer doorway with triangular head. On the lintel
there is an inscription, difficult to read, but said by the VCH to be as
follows: 'B.O. Michael Dovghtie 1605'. Inside the porch is a cupboard
door, once in the dining room, inscribed 'EPM 1709'. The windows are
sashed with no glazing bars in plain stone surrounds with 2 rebates and a
chamfer. The ground-floor windows are larger, with 2 to the left of the
porch and one to the right. The lst floor windows probably originally had
a mullion and a transom, with 4 to the left and one to the right of the
porch. Chimneys on the gables. The left-hand gable wall has, towards
the rear, a one-light rebated and chamfered window, now unglazed and
opening into a compartment divided from the dining room, possibly associated
with an alteration in the fireplace arrangements. Under the apex is a
circular chamfered opening to the attic. The rear wall has 2 projecting
external chimney stacks, now with later Cl9th caps. Against the wall is a
later extension. Inside no C17th features are visible.
