4/46 Pipe Hall


Muniment room, now outbuilding. Late C18 - early C19. Red-brown brick,
Flemish bond, graduated stone slate roof. 2 storeys, 1 bay street frontage,
and 2-bay unfenestrated entrance front facing west with a lower 2-storey,
3-bay range to right. Entrance front: paired flights of 7 stone steps to
door with 6 fielded panels and a divided fanlight. Doorcase composed of
fluted pilasters and open dentilled pediment. Projecting dentilled eaves,
hipped roof, rear stack. Lower range to right has board door to ground
floor left, small-paned windows and external steps to right return. Left
return (to road): a 16-pane sash in flush wood architrave with flat
stretcher arch to each floor. Interior: a fine C18 staircase is built into
the south-west corner, to right of the entrance. It is of 2 straight
flights with turned vase-and-column knopped balusters; at the half landing a
6-panel door opens into the first floor of the lower 3-bay range; at the top
of the stairs the opening into the upper room is screened by a panelled
partition. The building has a large half cellar with brick shelving and
remains of a large fireplace; the upper rooms have plain stone fireplaces.
There is no ground-floor access between the 2 ranges but the external
staircase to the right of the 3-bay range opens into the upper, now
unpartitioned, room which is also reached from the staircase of the front
range. A large fireplace to ground floor, left, and a small plain stone
surround to right. The name Pipe Hall is thought to have come from the
building's use as a repository for deeds and records in metal tubes. The
building is unusual for the lack of fenestration and the inclusion of
fireplaces, supporting such a purpose. The rear range may have been a
stable and hayloft, but in the C19 - C20 the ground floor was a bakery, with
large fireplace and oven.
