Details

TYLDESLEY PEEL LANE SJ 69 NE (south side) 6/55 Peel Hall 18/7/66 II House. C16 and C17 but largely rebuilt in C18 and early C19. English garden wall bond brick (now painted) with slate roof. H-shaped 2-storey plan with large C19 wing added to rear left. Projecting stone plinth reused from earlier building. Continuous first floor brick band. Symmetrical elevation with 4 bays and central entrance which has fluted Ionic columns and a flat hood. The gabled crosswings in bays 1 and 4 are hidden behind a stepped C19 parapet. The most unusual feature is the Colonial-style loggia created in C19 between the crosswings by supporting a bold parapet on 2- storey high cast-iron fluted Ionic columns, a feature which reappears at the rear. Out of the 4 windows on each floor only 1 retains a 16-pane sash, others have segmental or flat brick arches or stone lintels. 4 C20 bow windows to right. Interior: chamfered beams some with stepped stops. Vaulted cellar. 6-panel doors. Staircase with double-square newels with sunk panels and cappings, massive moulded handrail and turned balusters on closed string. Moated site, the history of which goes back much longer than the present structure. The earlier building was owned by the Canons of Cockersand.
