Brook Hall) )
­ II

House. Circa 1500 and C17, altered in C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed
with interlocking concrete tiles. C17 4-bay range facing NW, with axial stack
in second bay from right end. Behind right end, C18/C19 single-storey service
range with axial stack. At left end of main range, 2-bay crosswing projecting
forwards, c.1500, with early C17 external stack at left side, the whole forming
a Z-plan. 2 storeys with attics. Ground floor, 3 C20 casements and one metal
sliding French window. First floor, 3 C20 casements. C20 door. Roof of main
range half-hipped at right end, roof of crosswing fully hipped. The crosswing
survives from a medieval hall house, of which the remainder has been demolished,
much of the timber being re-used in the present main range. The crosswing has
jowled posts, close studding partly exposed internally, a chamfered binding beam
with mitred stops, a cambered central tiebeam with 2 arched braces, and a
crownpost roof with axial bracing. The main range has chamfered axial and
transverse beams with lamb's tongue stops at both floors, and plain joists of
square section. The clasped purlin roof is almost wholly constructed of re-used
rafters from the roof of the medieval hall house. 2 large wood-burning hearths
back to back, much altered in the C20. At the E corner of the stack is a brick
inscribed with the letters I.W., but half concealed by plaster. If the other
half has a date, this is likely to be the date of construction of the original
chimney, and therefore of the main range. RCHM 8.
