Listing Text

TM 15 NW
- Ubbeston Hall (formerly
9-12-55 listed as Church Farmhouse)
- II

House, formerly manor house. A mid or late C15 3-cell open hall house with a
mid C16 extension at the north service end. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
plastered with good early C18 cable-pattern pargetting in panels with ribbed
borders; over the entrance is a panel with the raised plaster date 1721 over
initials RG.; now fixed to the bakehouse chimney is a triangular panel with
raised plaster motifs, removed from the external gable. Thatched roof with
axial and gable C17/C18 chimneys of red brick. One C20 eyebrow dormer.
Mainly C19 small-pane casements. Battened and boarded arched C20 entrance
door at cross-entry position, with open thatched gabled porch on posts. An
open hall of 2 bays: the open truss has a cambered tie-beam with wide arch
braces and an octagonal crownpost with moulded capital and base, and 4-way
plank braces. Both end walls have tension-braced close-studding. Complete
smoke-encrusted roof, with original plaster between rafters. Twin service
doorways with chamfered 4-centred arches. The service cell has an additional
bay, giving in total, 4 small service rooms. Both end cells have unchamfered
joists, and gabled crownpost roofs. A chimney was inserted, backing on to the
cross-passage, in c.1600 and an upper floor placed over the hall, with ovolo-
moulded beams. A cross-wing was added in C16, containing a probable dairy
with cheese room over, and a 2-bay bakehouse. The latter is open to the roof
(of wind-braced clasped-purlin form); one of the cross-entry doorways
survives, with a 4-centred arched head. An internal end fireplace with later
bread oven.
