16/107 Welton Hall
Farmhouse and ruined tower. House dated 1614 but originally a C13 or C14 hall house. C16, C17 and C19 alterations. Tower C14. Squared stone, including Roman stone, and random rubble. Welsh slate roofs. Tower to right with 2- storey L-shaped house attached. Tower roofless; 2 storeys and tunnel-vaulted basement. One C14 first floor window with cusped head; other windows square- headed with chamfered surrounds. Ground floor masonry is of one build with wing to left. This was hall range and has a blocked C14 window in gable end. Later, probably C16 building partly covers gable end of hall range.
Entrance front is on left return. Doorway dated WW 1614 under hoodmould. It has angular flattened Tudor arch and finely-moulded surround. Square inset panel above with moulded surround. Above and to the left 2- and 3-light windows with hoodmoulds and ovolo-moulded mullions. Rear of front wing projects to left and has 3- and 4-light windows, one blocked, with plain chamfers and without hoodmoulds. Two 2-light similar windows to stair projection on right of door.
Garden front has to left a 5-sided, 2-storey mullion-and-transom bay window with ovolo mouldings and moulded string above each floor. Right of this a 2-bay section with early C19 door and 16-pane sashes in flat raised surrounds; but there is also one small original C14 window above door to left and another blocked beside it. On left return a massive external stack, originally on corbels at 1st floor level but extended to ground and given crow-stepped top in C16 or C17.
Interior of hall range to left of tower has, on 1st floor, a blocked C14 doorway with pointed arch and continuous chamfer; also a large blocked C14 window with segmental head on gable end below smaller window visible from outside. These indicate a former 1st floor hall. Square stone newel stair has doorways with chamfered surrounds and broach stops. It continues up into roof space and suggests vanished 3-storey wing. Ground floor of hall wing has large C17 fire- place with flattened Tudor arch, moulded surround and triangles in spandrels. Old beams.
