1/156 Nether Hall


Large country house, formerly manor house. Late C16 or c.1600 with
remodelling of early C18, 1875 for Edward Green MP and again in 1901 by Philip
Webb. Red brick: the earliest work visible at rear and in cross-wings is in
narrow bricks in English bond. Both the main gables and the hall range were
refronted in early or mid C18 narrow bricks in Flemish bond; bay windows and
extension of 1875 in larger bricks with limestone dressings. Parapet gables
of C18 to crosswings with gable finials of moulded brick perhaps of C16
origin. Parapets of 1875 with dentilled cornice to main range. Plaintiled
roofs: 6 major internal chimneys of red brick: 3 at the rear have shafts of
late C16/early C17 brick, 2 others are probably C18, and that to right is of
1875. All chimneys have pilasters and heavy oversailing caps in the C17
Kentish manner, which were probably added in 1875. 2 storeys and attics. 5
window main range: two forward-projecting crosswings with added bay windows.
All windows to main elevation of 1875 in the Jacobean manner: moulded mullions
and transomes and frames all in freestone, steel casements, the upper lights
in some cases having decorative leaded glazing. At each crosswing is a large
2-storey splayed bay with curved parapet gable and ball finial. Over both of
the ground storey windows is a crest with motto and over the upper window at
each wing is a shield with initials EWG for Edward Greene. Central entrance
doorway with C18 rusticated quoins of gauged gault brick: 12-panelled door of
1875. The west elevation has a probable C17 garderobe tower with a moulded
band at 1st floor: converted to one of a pair of bay windows in 1875. The
north elevation has been the entrance front since 1875: narrow brick of late
C16/early C17. Remodelling by Philip Webb 1901: 3 weatherboarded gables with
decorative bargeboards; each including a small-pane casement flanked by
pilasters. At lower storeys are small-pane sashes with segmental heads, also
by Webb. Entrance porch of 1875: open archway with shafts and half-capitals,
flanking carved floral panels, deep cornice and flat roof (an added gablet by
Webb). Panelled inner walls and doorway. Interior: - not examined, but
believed to be entirely remodelled in the Jacobean manner in 1875 with
extensive oak panelling and other joinery. The rear wing added 1901 by Webb is
in the parish of Pakenham (District of St Edmundsbury) and is included in the
list for that parish as Item 2/100.
