GREYSTOKE BERRIER ROAD (South side) Greystoke

Layton Manor House (formerly listed as Leighton Manor House)


Probably late C16 with C19 alterations and additions. Thick walls of large blocks of red sandstone rubble; graduated greenslate roof with ashlar chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 2 bays with right-angled 2-bay extension of common roof line, and lower left C19 2-storey, 2-bay extension forming overall L-shape. Doorway in re-entrant angle has plank door in broad chamfered surround under reused carved coat-of-arms of the Layton family of Dalemain, dated 1649 (thought to have been brought here in the C19 from Dalemain). Main body of the house and contemporary extension have 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned windows under hoodmoulds, and 3 small firewindows, 2 of them blocked. Gable wall at front has blocked doorway under 2-light chamfered stone-mullioned window. Right return has sash windows in C19 surrounds. C19 extension has 2-light windows under hoodmoulds. Left return has Tudor-arched stone porch. Interior has broad segmental-arched stone fireplace. This house belonged to the Halton family until sold to the Duke of Norfolk in 1785, who in turn sold it to the Hasell family of Dalemain. Known as Greystoke Mid-Farm in the C19. See, M.W. Taylor, The Old Manorial Halls of Westmorland & Cumberland, 1892, pp.310-11; Transactions Cumberland & Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society, new series, xliv, pp.93-8. Although referred to as a Manor House this building seems to have never served that role.
