Gatehouse and walls. Late C16. Red brick (English bond) with ashlar
quoins and dressings. A pair of octagonal turrets, each with ogee-
moulded cornice and stone dome, flank a rusticated semi-circular gate
arch with raised key and strapwork parapet. Each turret has an inserted
2-light chamfer-mullioned window with straight hood mould looking towards
the gateway approach. To the rear of each turret is a Tudor-arch doorway
with sunken spandrels. Attached lengths of coped walling enclose the
north-east and north-west sides of the main courtyard at Hamstall Hall
(q.v.). The gatehouse is in the centre of the north-west wall. The
north-east wall is terminated at the south-east end by a tower (q.v.).
Adjacent to the tower are indications of former buildings ranged along
the inside of the walls. These include the remains of 2 early C16
windows, a bay window of 3 and the other of 4 light, both with basket-
arch lights and ogee-moulded mullions and surrounds. Interior. Nesting
boxes have been cut out of the walls to convert the gate turrets to
dovecotes. Scheduled as an Ancient Monument. I.M. Ferris, 'A Survey of Hamstall
