Listing Text

TM 27 SW
5/1 Athelington Hall (formerly listed
29.7.55 as Athelington Hall and farm)
Farmhouse. C17, in 3 phases forming L-shape plan. Mid C20 addition to left.
The core of the house is an early C17 parlour cross-wing; this now comprises
the right hand cell of the front range. The rear wing is probably an early-
mid C17 replacement for earlier work. In later C17 the present stack was
inserted and the front range extended beyond it to form another room. Timber
framed with C20 panelled plasterwork. Roof of double Roman tiles except for
one slope of rear wing which has clay pantiles. 2 storeys and attic. 2
windows, mid C20 single-pane casements. Lobby entry with mid C20 gabled porch
and door. Internal stack, the shaft of mid C20 date. Right gable end has a
projecting tie beam supported on consoles and carved with a repeated design of
foliage. The cross-beam at first floor level is also richly carved and
supported on broader but flatter consoles. Below these consoles the corner
posts have a vertical band with carved motifs. Internally there is remains of
further decorative work on the opposite gable end. To the rear, part of a
carved console and corner post; also remains of a window with ovolo mullions.
A carved cross-beam at first floor level is mostly concealed. In the gable is
a collar carved with an intricate geometric design based on linked rectangles;
original panelled plasterwork with herringbone infill. Both the parlour and
chamber above have cross-beamed ceilings, the remainder of the structure
concealed. In the rear wing the main components of the frame are visible.
Roof of parlour block concealed; the later C17 addition has 2 rows of
diminished stepped butt purlins. Rear wing has butt purlin roof. Remains of
medieval moat.
