Derby House


Formerly known as: Old Manor Court House SCHOOL LANE
House, or wing of former house. Dated 1633 at 1st floor;
altered. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, slate roof,
brick chimney.
2-unit plan at right-angles to street. 2 storeys with basement
and attic, a gabled one-window facade, with a high chamfered
plinth, and a moulded dripband over the ground floor.
The centre of the basement steps up over the top half of a
blocked square-headed doorway with chamfered reveal and
Tudor-arched lintel, to the left is a small chamfered blocked
opening, and to the right an inserted doorway with C20 door;
the ground floor has an inserted vertical-rectangular window
(with C20 glazing) in the remains of a blocked mullioned
window, probably formerly similar to the window at 1st floor,
which has 6 lights with a chamfered reveal, ovolo-moulded
mullions and a moulded hoodmould; and at attic level is a
blocked 2-light double chamfered mullioned window.
On the centre of the dripband is a stone plaque carved with
the Stanley crest of eagle-and-child, and the date "1633".
The right-hand return wall is mostly covered by an adjoining
building, but part of blocked 2-light mullioned windows are
exposed on both floors.
The rear gable wall has a 5-light mullioned window at 1st
floor (like that at the front), a stone plaque above this with
the Legs-of-Man, the initials "ILS" in the top left corner,
"1633" in the top right-hand corner, and initials in the lower
corners "RC" and "IC"; an attic window like that at the front,
and in the apex a square stone with an egg-shaped recess.
INTERIOR: 4 stop-chamfered lateral beams on each floor;
partition which is probably timber-framed; principal rafter
roof truss with angle braces and wind-braces to the purlins.
