CHIPPING NORTON WEST STREET (west side) The Manor House



House. Early C16 core with later additions and much restoration and alteration in the C19. Built of coursed rubblestone, stone dressings, some stone quoining and gabled stone tiled roofs with moulded stone stacks. Original house set on an E/W axis at right angles to the road with projecting wings to the N and S and further additions to the W forming an irregular T-shaped plan. The garden facade to the S has a further projection which may have been a 2 storey entrance porch with room above. Two storeys and part attic. The roadside E facade comprises the gable end of the original house and the flanking 2-storey one-bay wings. On the ground floor in the S bay is a round-arched 3-light mullioned window with hollowed spandrels under a flat head with a square label. This is similar in style to the fenestration of the Guildhall and is of c1520. Above this is a C19 3-light ogee mullioned window. The attic window beneath the central gable is an original 3-light chamfered mullioned window recut in the C19 and below this on the 2nd floor is a surviving hood mould to another mullioned window which has been lengthened and completely refenestrated. The remaining fenestration is C20 leaded glazing. There are several original late C16 2 and 3-light mullioned windows on the S front including a wood mullioned window to the SE attic and on the W front at ground level is an earlier double chamfered mullioned window. A small deeply splayed round headed window set in the N front which lights the staircase is probably a Perpendicular window, a hollow spandrel of which is just discernable on the W jamb. Inside the first floor room on the SW of the original house has 2 walls of late C16 oak panelling on a squared pattern with a gouged frieze.
