SO 8609/8709 (part of)
8/41 New Hall
House on corner. Mainly C17 but some much older fabric. Dressed coursed lime-
stone, stone slate roof. L-plan with two gables both to Bisley Street and to
New Street, and a cross-gabled wing; gables are coped, small stack to right
gable and brick stack to left gable. To Bisley Street is two-and-a-half
storeys, chamfered mullion casements with leading and stopped hoods, 2-light to
gables over 3-light. At ground floor, left, window shares stepped hood with a
blocked doorway, and right has a square bay with hipped roof, possibly a former
shop front. To New Street also two fill gables, double chamfered mullion
windows to stopped hoods, 2 over 3 over 3-light all leaded; centrally a further
3-light, probably original door position. Return left from Bisley Street has
two single light casements over a C20 door, left and a 2-light wood casement; a
small gable to stair, left, has 2 over 3-light casements. The L is infilled
with a single storey unit. Plinth to main fronts. Interior: ground floor room
in south-east corner a 4-compartment ceiling formed from deep chamfered beams,
also a large square stone fireplace with moulded surround; the adjoining room
has one heavy beam and a stone fireplace of late mediaeval type with haunched
lintel, moulded and with moulded stone overmantel. First floor over south-east
corner has smaller square stone fire opening similar to that below, here is also
visible part of an arch-braced cruck truss which is cut through by the chimney
breast but is completed to the collar above; the arch brace is moulded, and it
is probable that this part was originally an open hall. Much of the roof
structure has been renewed, but in some areas the early rafters are pegged to
the diagonal ridge piece, staggered each side of slope. Cellar under part of
New Street front includes a stone half-barrel vault which appears to abut a
former external wall; one whole corner is enclosed in an unexplained way. The
building is clearly a Hill House which has undergone substantial changes; it is
said to date from 1410 and was a Wool Hall in 1429. A clothier lived here from
1580. Much modification must have occurred when New Street was cut through in
C15, and again substantial works were undertaken in the early C20, when the two
fireplaces on the south gable wall appear to have been reset, and this arm of
the building cut down in size.
