2/41 Banqueting House in
grounds of Batley Hall


Presumed to be a banqueting house or garden house. C.17. Brick
with plastered, mullioned and transomed chamfered windows. Stone
slate roof. 2 storeys. Small single cell building with lean-to
stair turret to rear (west). 2 course string between floors and
corbelling at eaves which continues across gables. East and south
elevations each have central arched doorway with flanking pilasters
with moulded brick volutes, though badly eroded, and brick capitals
at string level. Corner pilasters on south side. East doorway is
flanked by cross window to left and single light with transom to
right. South doorway has single light with transom to each side.
At 1st floor level of both main facades is central 6-light mullioned
and transomed window both with flanking pilasters but with capitals
on south side only. 2 bays of distinctive raised brick diamond
patterning in sunk panels to each side. The same patterning occurs
in panels below windows, though some have been blocked at later date.
6-light mullioned and transomed window on north side.

Some original plastering to windows survives, though in poor repair.
Much of the brick detailing is very badly eroded.

Roof timbers appear to be original. Roof and stairs of turret
gone. Most windows now blocked.

An unusually elaborate treatment in unusual materials.
