Farmhouse, part now outhouse. Late medieval Core encased C17/C18, altered. Some internal timber framing, squared and rubble sandstone, pantile roof. 2 storeys, 1:4 bays, left bay lower and with rear outshut; 4-bay part being the original timber-framed house. Large quoins to rubblework of bay 1, low eaves. Left part of 4-bay range has part-glazed door flanked by casements on each floor; wall-post positions indicated by breaks in masonry. Right part of range, now an outhouse, has 2 doorways flanking a slatted casement; loft hatch over right door. Roof hipped at right end. Brick end stack at junction of roofs, brick ridge stack on right. Interior: timber-framed part has C17 axial ceiling beams to left-end bay with both front and rear wall posts surviving on right. Adjacent bay has front wall post, all others are removed. Of particular interest is the roof of crown-post form with a decorated open truss above what was a central open hall of 2 unequal bays. This truss has a double-chamfered tie-beam soffit with outer chamfer continuous down the surviving front wall post; broach-stop- chamfered crown post with curved braces down to the tie and up to the collar; curved braces to the collar purlin. Adjacent closed truss on right retains some curved-strut infill. Embedded trusses survive over the present house- part, whilst only the tie beam remains at right end of range. A Manor is not recorded at Woodall although the name appears in medieval documents as a surname eg. a grant of 1321, by William Son of Adam de Wodehall. Nearby field names of 'Hall Leys' and 'Hall Ings' shown on the 1844 tithe map together with the obvious calibre of the surviving fabric indicate that this house is likely to be of manorial status. The survival of a late medieval crown-post roof, particularly in a rural setting, is of major importance in this region. Full survey report filed elsewhere. P. F.
