MARKET DRAYTON C.P., GREAT HALES STREET (south side), Nos. 14 (Ryland House), 16 and 16A

(Formerly listed as No 14 (Ryland House)


Pair of houses, latterly one, now divided. Early C18 with mid-to late C18 and probably mid-C19 alterations and additions. Red brick with painted sandstone ashlar dressings. Rendered side and rear walls lined as ashlar. Hipped plain tile roof. Two storeys and attic over basement. Plinth, stone plat band, stone frieze and modillion cornice above first floor and dentil brick eaves cornice to attic (plat band and cornice returned up to stacks). External brick end stacks (left-hand truncated) and brick ridge stack at rear. Three bays; depressed-arched glazing bar sashes (with thick bars) , moulded architraves and moulded stone cills. Central straight-headed first-floor window has lugged architrave with scrolled shoulders, egg and dart enrichment to reveals and raised keystone with scrolled motif. Pair of attic glazing bar sashes with exposed boxes. Central blocked doorway with inserted small-paned window, and stone doorcase consisting of lugged moulded architrave, narrow pilaster strips, console brackets with acanthus ornament, frieze and segmental pediment. Right-hand return front: plat band and cornice returning to stack. First-floor plat band to right. Two glazing-bar sashes, central first-floor glazing-bar sash and ground-floor glazing-bar sashes (one tripartite), all with exposed boxes. Rear: painted red sandstone plinth and plat band. Three bays; glazing bar sashes (ground-floor with segmental heads) with exposed boxes. Four stone steps up to boarded door to right. Later wing (No. 16) adjoining to south-east. Mid-to late C18. Red brick with plain tile roof. Two storeys. Plat band and dentil brick eaves cornice. Two first-floor plate-glass sashes with painted stone cills and wooden lintels and central ground-floor plate- glass sash with painted stone cill and lintel and straight joints beneath (probably former doorway). Early C18 door (probably former front door from No. 14) to right with 6 raised and fielded panels and early C19 doorcase consisting of moulded architrave, panelled pilaster strips, frieze and shaped brackets supporting flat hood. Three curved sandstone steps up to door (possibly also from No. 14). C20 half-glazed door to left with rectangular overlight and painted stone lintel. Interior of No. 14 (Ryland House): much altered in C19. Rear entrance hall has c.1700 fireplace with bolection-moulded stone surround. Right-hand rear room with c.1700 bolection-moulded dado panelling and C19 Jacobean- style fireplace and overmantel. A number of bedrooms have fireplaces with late C18 cast-iron basket grates. C18 moulded cornices in some rooms. C18 doors with 6 raised and fielded panels and panelled reveals. Many windows with moulded architraves and panelled internal shutters. The interior of that part of No.16 which occupies the front of No. 14 was not inspected but is reported to contain some early C18 panelling. No. 14 (Ryland House) appears to have been altered in the C18 by the addition of an attic storey (see straight joints in right-hand return front suggesting former 2-span roof). It was also probably extended to the rear (see straight joints and break in plat band). The house has been divided and partly incorporated with its neighbour (No. 16) at some time in the C19. It was probably then that the doorway was blocked and the door and steps reused in No. 16. The interior layout was also altered. Listing NGR: SJ6768134081
