Clock House (Headmaster's house of SE 1535 22/693 Bradford Grammar School)

II

2. Clock House was the principal residence of an estate dating back to the early C17 and probably the C16. It was acquired by Bradford Grammar School in 1936. In appearance the 2-storey sandstone "brick" house is late C18 but the structure incorporates older features from the C17. The south front of 5 bays has chamfered ashlar quoins, plinth, a weathered stringcourse which is probably C17, moulded cornice and parapet with coping. The latter is arched up in centre over an ashlar framed circular opening partially glazed, which is presumed to have contained the clock from which the house derives its name. Set below is a sundial dated 1657 and bearing the initials of John Crabtree, a Manningham yeoman who purchased the estate in 1636. The windows on this front have squared ashlar surrounds, later C19 sashes. Moulded jamb late C17 doorway now blocked, carved frieze with head. Above the doorway is a date stone of 1699 with the initials of Thomas and Elizabeth Crabtree. The gable ends have saddlestones, small shaped kneelers in situ on north side. In the centre of the gables are small 3-light chamfered mullion windows, rounded heads to lights, the centre one taller, diminutive panelled spandrels. Drip moulds stepped up over. These probably date from the late C17. Mid C19 alterations with 2-light windows. Castellated porch to east gable end with round-headed window above. Rear wing of 1895 with tripartite pedimented window. Stone slate roof to main house; large ashlar chimney stack with arcaded panels centred on ridge.
