Coledale Hall
(Formerly Listed as:
Coledale Hall)


House and stable range now office and house. 1810 for Henry
Fawcett (MP for Carlisle); 1846 internal alterations for
George Mould (railway contractor) by Mr Withnal. Flemish bond
brickwork with light headers on chamfered calciferous
sandstone plinth (all dressings of this material partly
painted); raised V-jointed quoins and cornice with solid
parapet. Graduated greenslate roof with coped gables; original
end brick chimney stacks.
2 storeys, 3 bays with single-storey, single-bay set-back
right extension, lower left single-bay link wall with carriage
archway and 2-storey stable range now No.96. Central panelled
door with fanlight in prostyle Ionic porch. Sash windows with
glazing bars under flat brick arches in brick reveals on stone
sills. Right gabled extension has C20 door within a gabled
wooden porch with shaped bargeboards. The rear is more
impressive than the front; central panelled door with side
lights under patterned overall elliptical overlight. Flanking
bowed bay windows with glazing bars in stone surrounds. Upper
floor sash windows with glazing bars in stone architraves.
INTERIOR is particularly fine. Hallway has fluted Ionic
columns and (1846?) cantilever stone staircase with patterned
wrought-iron balusters and moulded wooden handrail. Panelled
doors, some in panelled reveals and in moulded wooden
architraves. Hall and principal ground-floor rooms have
elaborate moulded plaster ceilings; modillioned cornices,
roundels and radiating sectional panels; black and white
marble fireplaces, one with carved details. Panelled internal
shutters to each window. Alcove with segmental arch on console
The house name comes from Richard Coledale, a merchant who
lived here in the reign on Henry VI, but it had been called
Harrington Houses. See Carlisle Journal (1810) for laying of
foundation stone of present house; Carlisle Journal (1846)
records the internal alterations. Became St Mary's Home for
Friendless Girls in 1926 and now Health Authority Office. Left
link wall and stable range, now No.96, are only included to
preserve the carriage archway, which is contemporary with the
facade of Coledale Hall.
