7/124 Old Hall Farmhouse


Farmhouse, early C17 (said to be of 1602, but possibly c,1630). Remodelling
of C18, and rear extension of c.1970. 2 storeys and attics. Half H plan; the
centre range of one window is unusually narrow. Timber-framed and plastered.
Plaintiled roofs; both cross-wings are hipped (possibly an C18 alteration).
To rear of the right hand wing is an original chimney of red brick with 3
detached square shafts. A matching chimney at left-hand wing has a rebuilt
shaft. Good original dormer in rear roof slope with ovolo-moulded mullioned
window. Late C18 casements with transomes; hinged boarded external shutters
at ground storey. Central entrance doorway of c.1970, in the mid C18 manner;
6-panelled door with architrave and pediment. In the narrow centre range is a
good early C17 dogleg staircase with carved and pierced newel finials and
widely-spaced turned balusters. Lighting the stairs is an ovolo-moulded
mullioned and transomed window. The parlour has moulded plaster cornices; and
a pair of fitted oak cupboards flank the window, forming a bay. The chamber
above has a similar arrangement but the cupboards are in wainscotting. In the
kitchen wing to right is a large segmental-arched fireplace, and cable-pattern
plaster on the ceiling beams. Slender close-studding. 2-tier butt-purlin
roof, the upper tier wind-braced. The house has many minor items of joinery
and ironmongery which contribute to its character.
