TL 63 SE FINCHINGFIELD BRENT HALL ROAD (north side)

3/4 Brent Hall 2.5.53 - II

House. Early C17, altered in C18 and C20. Timber framed, plastered with facade of red brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red clay tiles. 3 bays facing S, with original external stack on right return wall, and C18/C19 axial stack left of centre. Rear wing of 3/4 bays from left side, with original external stack at right side. C18 extension in rear angle, the roof parallel to that of the main range, and single-storey lean-to extension in angle behind it. C20 single-storey extension to left of rear end. 2 storeys. 2-window range of C18/early C19 sashes of 20 lights, the lower ones with hood moulds. Both original stacks are in English bond with grouped diagonal shafts, the front one rebuilt at the top. The front range has chamfered transverse beams with stops of unusual type, broached with the points squared off. In the right upper front room there is a hearth with depressed arch, plastered. The mantel beam of the rear stack is chamfered with lamb's tongue and bar stops. Jowled posts. The walls of the rear wing have been raised approx. 1.5 metres in the C18. There are historical records that Brent Hall was destroyed by fire in 1652, but it is difficult to reconcile this information with the stylistic evidence of construction in the early part of the C17; presumably the destruction was not total, which way account for the unusual plan. RCHM 12.
