723-1/2/20 Ancillary building within the moat
of Fingrith Hall Farm


Ancillary building of uncertain original purpose, now
agricultural, within the moat at Fingrith Hall Farm (not
included). C17, altered in C18/early C19. Timber-framed,
mainly weatherboarded, some red brick in Flemish bond, roofed
with handmade red clay tiles.
Main range of 5 bays facing SW, early C17, 2-bay cross-wing at
left end, late C17. C20 open lean-to along rear of main range,
roofed with corrugated iron. All of 2-storeys, but the
cross-wing is higher than the main range. 0.33m brick walls at
left side of cross-wing up to first floor, of which 2 are
blocked. One slatted high window. Other small areas of
brickwork, and brick partitions.
INTERIOR: chamfered binding and bridging beams with lamb's
tongue stops. Unjowled posts, straight braces inside studding,
slightly cambered tie-beams, raking struts to clasped purlin
roof. The first floor of the main range forms one undivided
space, which may have been used originally as a manorial court
hall. Probably the ground floor was always in agricultural
use, or stables; it is now much sub-divided by later brick and
other partitions. The floor has been raised in the 3 right
bays. The cross-wing has unjowled posts, thin studding with
primary straight bracing, and a joggled butt-purlin roof with
angle ties.
