Details

SJ 68 SW WALTON C.P. WALTON HALL PARK

6/60 Walton Hall

II

Hall 1836-8 altered and extended 1869-70, of stone-dressed brown brick with graded slate roofs. The garden (east) front of 2½ storeys and 2 wide bays is almost symmetrical with 2 crow-stepped gables, and pinnacled octagonal buttresses at centre and each corner. The lower storey has a canted bay window, right, and a square one, left, both of stone with ovolo mullions. There are 3 windows (1-light: 2-lights: 1-light) above each bay window and a lancet to the attic in each gable.

The entrance front (right) of 2½ storeys and 4 bays is asymmetrical: broad, windowless, projecting gable, left; narrow 2-storey recessed bay with windows; projecting 2-storey porch with shaped double doors of oak (each with 11 panels) in 4-centred arched opening of stone with semicircular stone oriel above; right bay with recessed upper storey. A 4-stage clock tower to the right (circa 1870), with stone clock-stage surmounted by shaped lead-roofed cupola and large weather-vane, is linked to the Hall by a screen wall with blank Tudor windows. The left front, much altered, contains an ornate mullioned and transomed staircase window with leaded glazing and some stained glass; leading is removed from most windows on all fronts.

Interior. The hall is panelled in oak, has a quasi- Elizabethan moulded plaster ceiling and round-arched double doors of great height and heavy treatment to the stair. Oak stair with divided return flights. Large heavily decorated panelled doors to upper rooms. The Brobdignagian joinery of circa 1870 contrasts with the lightly-handled gold and white plaster panels probably of 1838 to the shaped ceiling above the staircase.
