The Manor Hall


Former manor house, acquired for parish rooms and hall in 1947. Manor house circa
1480, extended in 1914 with C20 alterations. Original manor wing of ashlar, top
courses above string in brick, with ashlar dressings. Slate roof hipped at left
end, gable end to right. C20 wing of random stone rubble with gable-ended slate
Plan: Manor wing with single large rooms on each floor, formerly heated by
demolished stack to centre of rear wall, with C20 staircase at right end and outshut
to rear. C20 parish hall at right angles forming overall L-shape replaced the
former entrance wing and 2-storey porch in the angle, which were demolished in 1889,
the porch and some of the internal fittings being re-erected at Westaways, West
Pilton (q.v.).
Manor wing 2 storeys. Parish hall, single storey. Manor house wing has 2-window
range of 4-centred arched 4-light mullions, cavetto moulded and with Bassett
initials to the labels of the continuous hoodmoulds. Left-hand window has small-
paned casements. 2 ground floor windows have identical architraves, labelled
hoodmoulds and relieving arches, but mullions replaced in C20. The left-hand
window had been blocked up and a door inserted, but in mid C20 a new doorway was
punched through at the right end and the window reinstated. Above the right hand
window is a square stone inset and traces of a similar lozenge to left, which
formerly contained coats of arms. To the rear, above the outshut are 2 cavetto
mullion windows of three 4-centred arched lights.
Single storey parish hall has two 3-light transomed windows flanking porch with
gable-ended slate roof.
Interior of manor house wing largely altered in C20, but late C15 plain chamfered 4-
centred arched doorway survives to rear right-hand wall to ground floor, and a flat-
arched stone chimneypiece with ogee-flanking hollow-moulded surround and herringbone
slates to the back of the hearth to the upper storey.
