5/154 Crossrigg Hall

G.V. II*

Large house designed c1864 by Anthony Salvin; additions and alterations by J.H.
Martindale c1915 match the original style. Squared, snecked hammer-dressed
rubble with string course and quoins on chamfered plinth. Original masonry of
local pink sandstone, additions in yellower stone. Graduated slate roofs with
dormers; gables have stone copings with ball finials to apex and kneelers.
Corniced ashlar chimneys, some projecting; moulded cast-iron gutters.
Asymmetrical plan, mostly 2 stories. Wing was added to north side with the
embattled tower, dated 1915, built to conceal water-tank. Large mullioned and
transomed stair window has segment-headed lights. Original carriage porch was
re-used in 1916 with side arches widened. Canted bay window was added to west
elevation, and full-height bay window on left of south elevation, c1915.
Majority of windows are 2- or 3- light with moulded mullions and, in some cases,
transoms. Some of the larger ground-floor windows have a wider central light
which has a semicircular head springing from the same level as the transoms to
the flanking lights. In 1915, the domestic wing adjoining the east end was
enlarged; the original single storey buildings flanking the entrance to the
small yard to its rear were for storage. Salvin's interior has been preserved
and the original detailing has been matched where extensions made it necessary.
The main 'Jacobean' stair was carved in 1915, but Salvin's original stair was
re-used in the tower.
