(South west side)
21/315 Tyrell's Hall (No. lo)

Manor house. Mainly C18 but external appearance is now early C19 following
an extensive remodelling by Thomas Nash of Cockett and Nash, architects of
Royston, Herts. in 1825. North east end is probably C16. Part timber framed
and part gault brick with the principal entrance front now on the north side,
stuccoed. Hipped, early C19, slate roof with internal and end stacks of
similar period. Two storeys. Symmetrical facade of four flush frame, twelve
pane hung sashes on either side of taller central window of fifteen panes.
Below is a central doorway with open modillion pediment on engaged Tuscan
columns. Panelled door with fanlight and radial glazing bars. A lower
service wing adjoins with two storey canted bays flanking the doorway in the
end wall. Stuccoed and roughcast walls with slate roof. The garden front is
of gault brick and has a range of five recessed hung sashes, shuttered, and a
central glazed doorway flanked by full length hung sashes. The site is
partly moated. The early C19 alterations to the house, the lodge, bridge,
Gothick summer house and garden shelter (q.v.) reflect the taste of the
Woodham family at the time. A bath house of similar period is now ruinous
(1985). Plans and elevations for the proposed alterations to the house by
Cockett and Nash are deposited in Cambridge Record Office. The original
scheme shows that the main front was on the south side. The drawings also
show that the bays at the east end of the service/office range were an
alteration to the proposed scheme. Tyrell's manor was acquired by William
Woodham in 1759. The Nash-Woodham family also owned Docwra's Manor, Shepreth
