Front garden wall with 3
doorways attached to
east front of Kershaw
- House
Garden wall with 3 doorways. Dated 1660, partly rebuilt. Coursed squared stone.
Wall, enclosing rectangular garden, has doorway in east wall, opposite main
entrance to Kershaw House (qv), and 2 in west wall flanking house. Wall is approx
3 metres high with quoins and 2 courses of roll-moulded coping. Doorway in west
wall, to south of house, and facing west has stop-chamfered quoined, ogee-headed
surround, the lintel having incised panel with date. South wall curves in S shape
and has a chamfered arched light in south-east bend. Doorway in east wall, facing
east, has round arch rising above wall and stop-chamfered moulded surround. The
north wall and its return to the house, partially crenellated and with doorway to
north of house, are rebuilt. Kershaw House belonged to James Murgatroyd in the
first half of the C17. In his will of 1653 James bequeathed the house to his
youngest son, Thomas, who re-edified the house and whose initials with the date
1650 are over the main doorway. It has been suggested that the date 1660 on the
south-west doorway indicates the completion of his work. 'Antiquarians at
Midgley. Kershaw House, Brearley Hall and Luddenden Church', Halifax Antiquarian
Society, Vol 1, 1902, Saturday 10 May.
