4/162 Thornley Hall 13.2.67 (formerly listed as Thornley Hall, Garden Wall in front of Thornley Hall and Gateposts at Thornley Hall)


House, early C18th with C17th remains, much altered. Rendered rubble with slate roof. 2 storeys with attic. Facade has quoins with channeled rustication, continuous drip courses over ground and 1st floor windows, and a cyma moulded cornice gutter. The porch is gabled with a coping and 2 balls and a chamfered outer doorway with triangular head. On the lintel there is an inscription, difficult to read, but said by the VCH to be as follows: 'B.O. Michael Dovghtie 1605'. Inside the porch is a cupboard door, once in the dining room, inscribed 'EPM 1709'. The windows are sashed with no glazing bars in plain stone surrounds with 2 rebates and a chamfer. The ground-floor windows are larger, with 2 to the left of the porch and one to the right. The lst floor windows probably originally had a mullion and a transom, with 4 to the left and one to the right of the porch. Chimneys on the gables. The left-hand gable wall has, towards the rear, a one-light rebated and chamfered window, now unglazed and opening into a compartment divided from the dining room, possibly associated with an alteration in the fireplace arrangements. Under the apex is a circular chamfered opening to the attic. The rear wall has 2 projecting external chimney stacks, now with later Cl9th caps. Against the wall is a later extension. Inside no C17th features are visible.
