7/53 Thorpe Manor

- II

Manor house, now house. Perhaps C16 or earlier, but remodelled and enlarged
in C17; altered in C19. Roughcast on sandstone, Welsh slate roofs. Now
approximately square plan formed by 2 parallel ranges with later addition on
levels round the whole, the bands stepped over former openings; large coupled
gables on east, south and west sides. Main entrance now into addition on
north side, which has door at its right-hand end, under modern open porch;
to left of this, two 2-light double-chamfered mullion windows, similar window
above the porch, and in right return wall similar windows of 3 and 2 lights.
Double-chamfered stone mullioned windows otherwise survive only if the west
side: 3 and 3 lights at ground floor, 4 (lacking one mullion) and 3 lights at
1st floor, and 3 lights in each gable (outer lights of both blocked); left
end of this wall has 2-light cellar window; right-hand end has doorway at 1st
floor. Fenestration of south and east sides altered for replacement by
sashes, and further altered, and now irregular, but steps in band suggest
formerly multiple-light windows at 1st floor at left end of both these sides;
and gables on south side have straight dripmoulds to former windows. Ridged
coping to all gables, carried across low linking parapets. Ridge chimneys.
Interior: much altered, but south range appears to be earliest build, and
contains some muntin-and-rail panelling at ground floor; 3-bay roof of this
range is of common rafter construction, and contains an axial longitudinal
member which may be a cellar purlin.
