19/202 Manor House
Manor house. c.1740 for Seventh Earl of Westmorland, extended 1895. Squared
coursed limestone with ashlar facade. Collyweston slate roof. Double depth plan;
Palladian style. 2 storeys with attic. Main front of 3 bays under large pediment
defining the gable end of the range. Centre bay breaks forward slightly. Central
6-panel door, with glazed toplights, has moulded stone surround with cornice
above. Flanking 6-paned sash windows with plain ashler surrounds. Window frame,
to left of entrance, is C18 with some original glass. 3 blank panels and broken
pediment above. Central, first floor, 6-paned sash window has moulded stone
architrave and is held in the pediment. Flanking bays each have sash window to
ground and first floor with broad unmoulded architraves, those on the ground
floor have round heads enclosing blind tympana. All sash windows are 6-paned
with the exception of the ground floor right which is a C19 two-paned sash
window. Cills of all ground floor windows are linked by a raised band. Moulded
cornice at head of first floor windows also defines main gable pediment. Central
sash window to attic has segmental head. Pediment to centre bay, at apex of
gable, is also defined by moulded cornice. Large ashlar stack at apex. Late C19,
single-storey one-bay extension to right has no windows to this elevation.
Elevation of extension, to right, has sash windows and door, with ashlar
surrounds. Side and rear elevation of main range have cross casements under wood
lintels and flat stone arches. Centre bay of rear elevation breaks forward
slightly. Late C19 extension to rear. Interior: spine beams and large open
fireplace in kitchen, now blocked. The Seventh Earl of Westmorland whose
principal residence was Apethorpe Hall (q.v.) held the manor of Woodnewton in
the mid C18. The Manor House was probably used as a dower house as there is only
one principal bedroom off the main staircase.
