ATHERINGTON SS 62 SW 6/8 Little Hall -

- II

Farmhouse. C16 with possibly earlier origins, remodelled and extended c.1600. Rendered stone rubble and some cob. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Lateral front hall stack with brick shaft, brick stack at left gable end and axial brick stack to rear wing. Overall L-shape on plan, the range to east probably originally in open hall house of 5 bays, remodelled in C17 to form almost symmetrical through-passage plan with parlour to left and hall to right. At the same time, a right-angled extension of 2 storeys was added to rear right end of hall. 2 storeys. East front has 2 window range. C19 casements, 4 lights to left, 3 lights to right, 6 panes per light. Slate canopy to C17 doorway with elaborately carved rams horn and scroll-stopped durns to ovolo-moulded door surround. Original framed and ledged plank door with scratch mouldings to the ledges, cover strips, old door handle and lock. East front has a 3-light timber ovolo mullion window above leanto with slate roof, with C17 chamfered and stopped surround to inner door. Gable end has 4 light king mullion window, ovolo moulded, on each floor, the ground floor window has stone dripmould. A short extension wall extends from the west side incorporating a weathered C17 chamfered door surround and 4-plank door giving access to rear courtyard. Interior: ovolo-moulded door surround with large bulbous stops to the durns between hall and rear wing. Partially cased in stop-chamfered door surround to base of stair in rear wing. Chamfered bressumer and T-shaped chamfered ceiling beams to hall. Upper storey has a narrow stop-chamfered door surround to chamber over parlour, and chamfered door surround with large scroll-stops to the durns between chambers over hall and rear wing. The latter chamber has a C17 moulded plaster cornice with fragment of decorative foliated plasterwork frieze in the corner near the stairs, the frieze in fact continuing into the cupboard over the stairs. There is no access to roofspace, but 4 pairs of raised crucks, 2 of which certainly are jointed, the other 2 boxed in, curve deeply into the chamber walls of the east range, suggesting this may originally have been open to the roof, while 1 of the 4 trusses over the rear wing also have short curved feet.
