SD 5192 NW KENDAL HIGHGATE (West side)

7/57 Nos 80 & 80A



Gatehouse to Hospital. 1659 date on (mid C19?) copy of panel, in frame over central passage arch, is incorrect; late C17 drawing (by Machel) shows date was 1663. Initials T.S., for Thomas Sandes (dealer in Kendal cottons and mayor 1647-48), were on the original but a K (for Katherine, his wife) has been added and the coat of arms (combining those of Sandes with the Shearman dyers') is an embellishment. Wet-dashed rubble; eaves cornice to taller, central block. Graduated slate roofs; rendered mid and end chimneys. Symmetrical: 2 storeys, 5 bays (1:3:1). Central block has wide, semicircular-headed passage arch with single window to either side and 3 above; the wings have a single window to each floor. Ground floor windows are 3-light and 1st floor 4-light; all wood-mullioned with square-leaded panes. Plank door to either side in passage; on north side is an iron-lidded alms box, initialled T.S., set in a niche with 2 inscriptions above: REMEMBER THE POORE (sic) in low relief (C17) and Remember the Poor Widows, carved in Roman lettering (C18?). Interior not inspected; R.C.H.M. (1936) reports initialled and dated decorative plaster panel (T. & K.S. 1661), part of scrollwork frieze, and some original panelling to 1st floor.
