NORTH ELMSALL HALL LANE
SE41SE
(north side)
9/46 The Old Hall
GV II
Part of former manor house; now store. Probably early C17 or earlier, in 2
builds; altered. Magnesian limestone rubble with quoins, roofs of pantiles
(patched with slate), and stone slate. L-plan formed by 3-unit main range on
north-south axis and facing west (south gable to road), with 3-unit wing
attached to rear of south end. All 2 storeys, but rear wing lower. The west
front of the main range has a continuous dripmould (interrupted by inserted
waggon doorways), and,a blocked doorway with cambered lintel in the centre,
but is otherwise altered at ground floor; at 1st floor the centre and right-
hand bays have king-mullioned double-chamfered windows of 2 + 2 lights, and
the 1st bay has remains of a similar window; pantiled roof with ridged coping
to south gable. The south gable wall has a reduced window at 1st floor and a
blocked 4-light attic window, both with hoodmoulds. The south side of the
rear wing has 2 transomed 4-light windows at 1st floor (in centre and near
right-hand end), and a small 2-light double-chamfered mullioned window below
the second of these, and various altered openings including an inserted
doorway at 1st floor approached by external steps. The east gable has a
transomed 4-light window at 1st floor. The rear (north side) of this wing
has 5 chamfered doorways with cambered lintels; 1st and 4th altered as
windows, the 2nd with replaced lintel; and a similar doorway in the centre of
the upper floor. The rear (east side) of the main range has, inter alia, a
wide doorway of similar design, and a projection which may have been an
external chimney. The present north end of the main range (which formerly
continued in this direction) has a large C 17 segmental-arched chamfered
fireplace and a cambered doorway to its left, all within an exceptionally
large segmental arch with chamfered surround, which appears to be a medieval
fireplace; and above the centre of this, a small rectangular chamber
fireplace.
Interior: altered, but contains large chamfered beams of high quality.
