Description

ARTHINGTON CRESKELD LANE
SE 24 SE
LS 21 (west side)
6/91 Creskeld Hall
6.2.1952
- II

Large house. Of various builds, mostly C19, but with nucleus (kitchen wing
and chapel) which may be late medieval in origin, much altered. Irregular
plan round a small courtyard with kitchen wing forming the west range and
former chapel the north range. Two storeys; entrance front on each side has
inter alia, a C19 two-storey porch in Jacobean style, with crosswindow at
1st floor above the door, gable coping with ball finial and kneelers;
otherwise, the exterior is of less interest.

Interior: kitchen wing contains large kitchen with massive stop-chamfered
lateral beams, slightly smaller but otherwise similar secondary beams, and
stop-chamfered joists; a large projecting chimney breast with chamfered
segmental-headed fireplace; and an inserted panelled partition wall (probably
C19). Former chapel, altered as billiard room and now of less interest.

History: in 1240 Hugo de Creskeld granted the manor to the Abbots of
Kirkstall. Item formerly known as "Kirkskill Hall".
