7/46 Stockwell Manor
- II*

Large detached house. C15 or early C16 (but with an earlier window incorporated
into the fabric in the C16 or C17), extensively remodelled in the C19 and early
C20. Coursed volcanic trap rubble, some cob, partly plastered, under hipped and
gabled-end thatched roofs. Formerly a 3-room, cross-passage plan house, with a
large 2-room lower end wing, the junction of these 2 elements altered by C20
remodelling. Big external lateral stacks heat Hall and lower end, and a former end
stack (now axial) heats parlour; the higher end was extended in the C19 and another
end stack erected; lower end wing with 2 end stacks; all stacks (excluding a late
C20 boiler stack) with brick shafts. 2 storeys throughout.
Exterior: main range: front: the hall and parlour were refenestrated in the mid C19
to form an almost symmetrical 3-window range, the upper windows under large gables,
those to either side tripartite hornless sashes, 6:12:6; the middle window with a
12-pane hornless sash. One tripartite hornless sash window (4:12:4) to either side
of porch with canopy, dentilled, on console brackets, with pilasters and panelled
reveals. The right-hand end of this main range has been extended further in the
C19, with two 4-light casement windows to first floor, one to ground, with a French
Rear: 2 dominant external lateral stacks, that to the lower end with 3 little
inglenook windows, under hipped thatched roof; that to the Hall with 3 set-offs and
a small side-window. Two 2-light casement windows between: large 2-light casement
window with glazing bars and transom (probably early C20) to stairwell. The C19
extension with a round-headed doorway under broken pediment and architraves, two
1st floor 2-light windows, 2 below.
Lower end wing: front: symmetrical 3-window range; 2- and 3-light casement windows
to 1st floor; one 3-light casement window to either side of glazed door with heavy
surround. The junction between wing and main range marked by a projecting porch,
with Arts and Crafts detailing, which gives into entrance hall that is set back
from the line of the wing.
Rear: Two C19 2-light casement windows to lst floor, 1 single light and one 2-light
window below.
Interior: plank and muntin screen divides Hall and parlour, chamfered with pyramid
stops and mason's mitres; 3 massive chamfered cross beams with step stops, one set
over but slightly forward of screen and representing a parlour jetty. Parlour with
chamfered and stopped cross beam, and C17 panelling (including some leather panels)
apparently brought from elsewhere. Former end wall contains 2 medieval windows,
both timber; that to ground floor, formerly of 4 lights but with only one surviving
mullion, tightly cusped trefoil heads, with original sill, C15; the window to the
1st floor of 2-lights, and with intersecting tracery; clearly placed here from
elsewhere, but the chamfered surround looks C16 or C17; the original could be C14.
Roof to main range: 4 jointed crucks over lower end, Hall and parlour; Hall (of 2
bays) smoke-blackened trusses, ridge-piece and some battening; lower end less
heavily sooted; the parlour roof is clean. Lower end wing with plank and muntin
screen dividing the 2 rooms, with arched door lintel, chamfered; (it is possible
that this was brought from elsewhere).
