5/42 The Hall
(formerly listed as Well
5.5.52 Hall)


House. Early C14, C17 and c18. Rubblestone and ashlar, rendered with
graduated stone slate roof. Plan: to left, original C14 hall house with
vaulted undercroft, of 3 storeys, 2 bays by 3 bays; set back to right C18
three-storey, 4-bay wing. Quoins. To left-hand bay of C18 wing a 6-panel
door with 2 top panels glazed. Bay to right and to far right have
tripartite sashes with central 4-pane sashes. Above to these bays are
sashes with glazing bars and above again are 6-pane sashes. Bay above door
and to left of right bay have blind openings to each floor. 2 ridge stacks
and end stack to right. Medieval house has two 16-pane 2-light side-sliding
sashes to ground floor. First floor has 2 tall sashes with glazing bars and
Gothick pointed-arched heads set in original C14 pointed-arched openings
with continuous hoodmould. Second floor: central side-sliding sash with
glazing bars. Hipped roof, side wall stack. Rear: medieval hall has deep
moulded first-floor string course. To side is a thin blind chamfered
rectangular opening to rear staircase. Interior: C18 wing has early C18
dogleg staircase with thick turned balusters, up to attic storey, probably
reset. Medieval wing has 3-bay vaulted undercroft with chamfered ribs
supported on round piers with octagonal capitals and moulded corbels.
Moulded 4-centred arched fireplace to north. To east end is a tunnel
between end wall and outside wall. This supports a staircase above,
possibly original to the building. On the first floor C18 rooms were
inserted where the large hall was. In the third storey can be seen the
heads of the two C13 windows. On the wall of the right return can be seen a
blocked C13 window similar to the other two but complete with its central
mullion and tracery in the head of the window. The roof trusses to this
part are C17. The hall probably dates from 1342, when a Hospital of St
Richard was founded at Well. It was probably housed in the building until
the present almshouses were built in 1758.
