Listing Text


6/22 St. Clare Hall



House, formerly manor house, C15 and C16 in 3 phases. 2 storeys. Timber-
framed and rendered, the C16 block jettied at 1st floor level along the front.
Plaintiled roofs with axial and gable chimneys of red brick. Early C19 small-
pane sash windows and entrance door, panelled, with the upper section glazed.
The early C16 main range contains a 2-bay hall with a parlour to left. The
cross-passage entry has a screen of tall-panelled oak wainscotting, and the
parlour contains fragments of similar work. The main range has a plain crown-
post roof, augmented before c.1600 by principal rafters with arch-braced
collars and butt purlins. The C15 crosswing to right is of 2 unequal cells;
the crown-post roof later converted to clasped-purlin type. The rear mid-C15
wing has 2 bays of a formerly 3-bay solar at 1st floor level; the 2 damaged
crown-posts have fine moulded capitals and arch-bracing to the collar-purlin;
the closed truss has deep rising braces up to a crown-stud. The moated site is
of the house of the de St. Clare family; the present C15 structures were built
later, possibly for Roger Jerveys (d.1493).
