SX74NE The Manor House
House. Probably C16 or earlier, remodelled and extended in C17 and restored
in C20. Slate rubble. Slate roof with gabled ends and hipped roof to
porch. Stone rubble axial and gable-end stacks with slate weathering to
Plan and development: The original house was probably a 2-room plan in the
main front range; its lower end to the right (south east) and (the hall)
heated from an axial stack at its lower right end backing onto a passage.
The lower end has been reduced to an outshut and the passage turned into a
small heated room behind the hall stack. This was probably part of a C17
remodelling which involved the addition of a 2-storey 1-room plan wing with
a gable end stack behind the high end. The main range seems to have been
extended by another room at the high end and a cross passage between with a
2-storey porch added to the front. The stair turret in the rear left hand
corner of the hall is either an original feature as part of the C17
remodelling built when floors were inserted if the house were originally
open to the roof. Alternatively the lower end to the right of the axial
stack might have been an addition (with an access passage built in front of
the stack), the house having originally a 2-room plan front range with a
central 2-storey porch, a gable and stack heating the right hand room, an
unheated left end room and rear parlour wing. The outshut on the left side
of the rear wing is a later addition. The partition between the hall and
left end room have been removed and the house was extensively restored
recently when the floors and roof were rebuilt.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front, right of centre is blind
2 storey hipped roof porch to left of centre, projecting front wall on right
and single storey outshut on left end. All late C20 2 and 3-light casements
with glazing bars, timber lintels and slate cills. Doorway in porch has C20
door. Rear elevation has projecting wing to right with gable end stack,
similar C20 casements and C20 porch in angle.
Interior: Hall and former passage, and left end room now one large room.
Hall fireplace with new lintel, but with 2 ovens, one stone-lined, the other
a cloan oven. The ceiling beams have all been replaced in main range.
Rising from rear of former hall a stone newel stair. Rear wing has gable
end fireplace with dressed slate jambs and ovolo-moulded timber lintel with
bar stops, and with dressed slate string above the fireplace. the cross-
beam is chamfered and has been step stops. First floor and roof structure
not inspected, the roof is said to have been replaced.
