UTKINTON C.P. HALL LANE SJ 56 SE (South Side) 8/30 The Bailiff's House 10/3/53 GV II

House: early C17 but extensively renovated late C20. Partly tooled ashlar, partly rubble sandstone. Kerridge stone-slate roof and small stone chimney. Long rectangular plan. 3-storey 5-bay front in ashlar. Slightly protruding base. Ovolo-moulded 2-light windows on ground and 1st floor, smaller 2-light windows with ovolo-moulded mullions stopped at top and bottom. 3-storey, 6-bay south front is in rubble with large quoins. Similar windows though some partly restored, and one copied. At the centre is an added gabled porch with a reset moulded stone doorcase and a modern door. At the right end is a flight of stone steps parallel to the house and an inserted doorway at 1st floor.

Interior: no original features survive except for roof trusses of tiebeam with pairs of diagonal struts.

This is an unusual building with a very regular fenestration. It must have had a special function, perhaps as the forest courthouse or as the home for an officer of Delamere Forest.
