3/86 Kirklinton Hall

10.9.74 II

House. Core possibly of c1661 (using stone from nearby Levington Hall) for
Edmund Appleby, with extensive extensions of 1875 for the Kirklinton-Saul
family. Calciferous sandstone coursed rubble, with dressed stone and ashlar;
roof mostly removed, but graduated slate where it remains, stone chimney
stacks. 2 and 3 storeys, numerous bays in roughly E-shape. Core of 3 storeys,
5 bays with rendered front and 3 storey, 4 bay wing of coursed rubble facing
road. Central entrance renewed: round headed doorway flanked by twin Doric
columns on supporting plinth. Ground and first floor sash windows with
architraves and entablatures with pulvinated friezes. Left-hand window of
ground floor attached to a door. Second floor has square windows with wooden
casements, similar entablatures and friezes with shaped gables and modillion
eaves cornice, all added in 1875. Wing facing road had sash windows (now mostly
removed) and gable ends treated to match the Jacobean style additions. 1875
additions are 2 storeys with attic in ashlar. One wing matches that facing
road, the other is a very large L-shaped block added to it. The matching wing
has shaped gable ends, an escutcheon in the gable and shell niches above ground
floor entrance and first floor triple window (imparting to each a Venetian
window flavour). The short piece of the L which corresponds to the earlier
house, is 3 bays with projecting right-hand side and cornice above ground and
first floors. Shaped gable dormer with finial in centre. The long part of the
L has 5 symmetric bays and one at the south-west end. 3 window ashlar bow in
centre with balustraded parapet. Triple windows to second and sixth bays,
single to first, third and fifth. Shaped gable dormers to second, fourth and
sixth bays, first, third and fifth have plain segmental hoods. Rear of north-
west wing treated similarly in coursed rubble with central ashlar projection
flanked by 3-window bays. Empty and dilapidated at time of survey, roof being
stripped of slates.
