1/20 Churton Hall



Hall, 1569 (?), oak framed, replaced in brick at rear, with grey slate
roof, probably formerly thatched. Externally restored with much
framing renewed; internally the plan is altered. 2 storeys, E-shaped.
The central portion has heavy timbers, 1 cross-rail and narrow panels.
Inner walls of cross-wings have chevron braces and the gables have
lozenges and concave lozenges (probably confirming painted date on
porch). Front of right gable is slightly jettied; upper part of
central portion is rendered. Projecting 1-storey gabled oak-framed
porch right of centre has arched entrance of oak with rose; split
balusters in open sides. Above the porch are 2 armorial bearings on
octagonal plaques: to left a shield has white chevron band with 3
daggers or above and 3 below, to right white horse's head in circle.
Massive lateral sandstone chimney, left; against left end is a small
slate-roofed brick leanto, probably C19; 2 brick ridge chimneys.
Porch has painted board WB 1569 EB; massive door of 3 oak boards on
heavy wrought iron hinges. A pair of small 4-pane casements above
porch; 2 replaced casements to each storey left of porch; wall right
of porch unpierced; one replaced window to each storey in each
Interior: Altered ingle-nook in left parlour - an oak hood-beam now
in main ceiling suggests that lateral chimney was a C17 extension. 2
heavy chamfered main beams of oak in rear parlour of right cross-wing.
Oak boards are visible in bedroom over left parlour. 2 C17 panelled
oak doors upstairs. Roof timbers look C19.
