4/20 Amberley Court


Hall house, now farmhouse. Early C14, hall horizontally divided
in C16 and cased in C18. Sandstone rubble plinths, rubble cased hall
range, timber-frame with wattle-and-daub and brick infill, plain tiled
roofs, external stacks to north-west side of hall range, north-west end
of solar wing and south-west side of solar wing. H-plan: 2-and-half
hall range aligned north-west/south-east with three-bay service wing
to north-west, and matching three-bay solar wing to south-east. Two-
storey cross-wings; hall now one storey and attic. Four windows to
south-west elevation: gable end of service wing to left has one mid-C19
casement to ground floor; hall range has evenly spaced late C20 casements:
two to ground floor under segmental heads and one in each of two cormers;
solar wing has a 2-light C19 casement to ground floor and a 2-light mid-
C20 casement to first floor; two entrances to left and right hand side
of hall range: the first in a late C20 glazed porch; the second in a
C20 ledge door under a plain tiled hood. Interior: only part of spere-
truss and some of foiled roof trusses visible at time of resurvey (October
1984). An exceptionally important example of a hall house. About 10 yards
to the south-west is a C12 or C13 stone cylindrical font bowl without
decoration removed from Amberley Chapel (qv). Twenty yards south-east of
this is a gabled sandstone finial, probably C14, with trefoiled heads to
each of three faces, possibly removed also from Amberley Chapel in the
restoration of 1865. (RCHM Vol II, p 137, plates 94,168, 169).
