G.V. II*

House, dated 1715. Thin coursed hammer dressed stone, ashlar dressings and
quoins, stone slate roof. 2 storeys and attics. Double-pile on plan.
5-bay symmetrical facade, the central 3 bays of which break forward slightly
with quoined angles under a pediment the gable of which is treated in the same
way as the gables to east and west with copings and shaped kneelers. Plinth,
cavetto moulded string course continues over ground floor windows. Central
doorway is approached up 3 semi-circular steps and has lintel with depressed
Tudor arch inscribed "I M F", composite jambs with a decorative moulded surround
(cyma, step, roll and step moulding). Over door is oval sundial the surrounding
spandrels of which are engraved "I F", "I M",
"1 7", "1 5".
All are double chamfered mullioned windows with tall lights. Central bays have
2-light windows to each floor. Outer bays have 4-light windows to each floor.
Left hand return wall has gable stack. Rear has 5 linear divisions. 1st has
2-light window. 2nd, doorway with basket arched lintel, composite jambs and
chamfered surround. Set between, at 1st floor, is former taking-in door (now
window) with same details. 3rd, 4-light window with same over. 4th, tall
cross-stair-window. 5th, 4-light window lacking 2 mullions, opened to form
doorway. 1st floor has 4-light window. Right hand return wall has 2-light
window with 2-light flat faced mullioned window over to 1st floor to right of 2-
light chamfered mullioned window (blocked). Small attic light. One other stack
to ridge. Interior preserves 3 fireplaces with flat segmental lintels. The
original plan appears to have a central housebody flanked by parlours with rear
kitchen and back parlour between which is the stair which has a pulvinated
closed string; square newels, turned balusters and is a quarter-turn flight with
a landing. Beneath the stair are steps down to the cellar; this has 2 tunnel-
vaulted ranges lit by mullioned windows suggesting that it is original. The
house is important in that it represents a departure from the traditional forms
showing Georgian influence but still retaining double chamfered mullioned
windows. The rear taking-in door indicates that this was the home of a
prosperous clothier or wool merchant and part of the upper chambers at the rear
were no doubt used' for textile manufacture or as a warehouse. RCHM (E) Report.
