squared limestone and gritstone with brick to left; C17 red brick, Flemish
bond, with ashlar quoins to right. Pantiles. 2 parallel gabled 2-storey
ranges: the range to left of 2 bays with recessed entrance bay to left; the
range to right of 2 bays. Left range: C20 small-paned side-sliding sash to

shield in relief, below it there are the remains of an inscription in Gothic
lettering "..? deo" and another shield. C20 brickwork to gable with
irregularly pitched sides and stack. Range to right: C20 sashes with

return: the walling with inserted brick panels in position of ground- and
first-floor fireplaces (left) and a first-floor fireplace, right; side wall
stacks of reused stone. Interior not inspected at resurvey but reported to,
contain moulded ceiling beams. The Gothic lettering is similar in character
to the early C16 work of Abbot Huby at Fountains and several other sites
(Brimham Hall, How Hill Tower), his motto being 'Sol Deo Honor et Gloria'.
The Roundell family owned land in Knaresborough and Scriven in the medieval
period. Their arms (or, a fess gules between 3 olive brances vert) may be
those on the weathered stone. Speight refers to the house in the early C20
as 'reputed to have been the homestead of the Slingsbys of Scriven Hall;
there was then a coat of arms over the main entrance and 'a great portion
pulled down'. Included for group value.
