Formerly known as: Old Manor Court House SCHOOL LANE UPHOLLAND. House, or wing of former house. Dated 1633 at 1st floor; altered. Coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, slate roof, brick chimney. 2-unit plan at right-angles to street. 2 storeys with basement and attic, a gabled one-window facade, with a high chamfered plinth, and a moulded dripband over the ground floor. The centre of the basement steps up over the top half of a blocked square-headed doorway with chamfered reveal and Tudor-arched lintel, to the left is a small chamfered blocked opening, and to the right an inserted doorway with C20 door; the ground floor has an inserted vertical-rectangular window (with C20 glazing) in the remains of a blocked mullioned window, probably formerly similar to the window at 1st floor, which has 6 lights with a chamfered reveal, ovolo-moulded mullions and a moulded hoodmould; and at attic level is a blocked 2-light double chamfered mullioned window. On the centre of the dripband is a stone plaque carved with the Stanley crest of eagle-and-child, and the date "1633". The right-hand return wall is mostly covered by an adjoining building, but part of blocked 2-light mullioned windows are exposed on both floors. The rear gable wall has a 5-light mullioned window at 1st floor (like that at the front), a stone plaque above this with the Legs-of-Man, the initials "ILS" in the top left corner, "1633" in the top right-hand corner, and initials in the lower corners "RC" and "IC"; an attic window like that at the front, and in the apex a square stone with an egg-shaped recess. INTERIOR: 4 stop-chamfered lateral beams on each floor; partition which is probably timber-framed; principal rafter roof truss with angle braces and wind-braces to the purlins.
