8/54 Wighill Manor Farmhouse,
(previously listed as
2.9.52 Watson's Manor Farmhouse)


House. c1791 with remains of c1580. Coursed squared limestone, graduated
stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays. Central 6-panel door, with top two
panels glazed, in a reused late C16 classical surround. The doorway has
Tudor arch with architrave and cornice; flanking fluted Corinthian columns
with strapwork decoration to bases (partially buried) support an entablature
with dosserets and cornice. Above the door is a plaque with armorial
bearings; 2 shields in cartouches are placed on the cornice. The remainder
of the facade is C18 and later: 4-pane sash windows throughout, with
splayed vousoirs to flat arches; the ground-floor windows longer than those
to first floor. End stacks rendered. A 1926 copy of a painting of Wighill
Hall in 1791 is in the posession of the present owners; a note on the back
reveals that the present farm stands on the exact site of the 1580 hall
built by Sir Robert Stapilton and pulled down in c1791. A new hall was
built on higher ground and in 1811 Granville Anson Chetwynd Stapylton sold
the estate to Richard Fountain Wilson.
