SP 1903-2003
14/212 Southrop Manor
Large manor house. Part C12, mostly mid-late C17; early C18 re-
fronting, early C19 additions and 1926 alterations by Norman
Jewson. Random rubble limestone, largely roughcast rendered;
ashlar chimneys; stone slate roofs. Mostly 2-storey with attic;
main range runs east to west with wings at each end. South front:
altered by Jewson from C18 sash-windowed facade. Roughly central
pedimented doorway with eared architraves and pulvinated frieze;
C20 glazed door. Oval windows with moulded architraves flank
doorway. Fenestration mostly recessed chamfered mullioned
casements with hoodmoulds, 3 + 3-light with king mullion to ground
floor left, 3 cross windows to right. Seven 2-light upper floor
casements, all with leaded casements. East front: 2 moulded
parapet gables to left. Mixed fenestration, canted bay window to
ground floor, left of Tudor arched doorway in mullioned and
transomed screen. Various other 2, 3 and 2 + 2-light casements,
all C20 restored. West side: 2 gables, right to end of main
range with slit at base reputedly providing means to pass food to
priests' holes in cellar below this part of building. Gable to
left has 2 and 3-light recessed chamfered mullioned fenestration;
single gabled roof dormer. North side: various additions to main
range. Early C19 court room addition to end of east front with
hipped roof and two 12-pane sashes with hoodmoulds. Interior:
round arched Norman doorway to dining room with chevron order and
jamb shafts, was repositioned in 1926 alterations. Fine
plasterwork frieze by Jewson depicts Cotswold animals and leaf
patterns (c.f. similar work at Cotswold Farm, Duntisbourne Abbots
CP). Drawing room contains mid C18 marble fireplace moved from
Lechlade Manor. Other rooms have C17 panelling, not in original
positions. South west corner of house appears to be C12 in origin
with set of later priests' holes in cellar. Underground passage
(now closed off) leads from cellar to church chancel.
