AIREBOROUGH LAYTON ROAD SE 23 NW LS 19 (south side), Rawdon 8/12 Layton Hall 19.10.1962 - II

Manor house, now house. Probably late C16, extended in C17; altered (and probably partly demolished). Coursed squared sandstone with quoins, stone slate roof. Irregular plan, now F-shaped, of which the left half and central wing (formerly west crosswing) is the earlier. Two storeys; 3-bay C16 range on east-west axis, with projecting wing to front (north side) of 3rd bay; single-bay continuation of main range to the right, and similar projecting wing overlapping west end of this. Central wing has C18 plain doorway to left (single-storey porch in course of erection at time of survey), a blocked doorway and 2 inserted windows to the right, at 1st floor recessed mullioned windows of 2 and 3 round-headed lights, and gable coping with kneelers; left re-entrant wall of this wing has lintel of Tudor-arched doorway (altered as window), and a canted addition in the angle; to the left the main range has a deeply-recessed mullioned window on each floor (5 lights at ground floor, restored, and probably formerly similar above, altered), and to left of these a recessed square window at intermediate level. Left gable wall has inter alia a Tudor-arched chamfered doorway (now covered by addition which is not included in the item). Added main range to right has two 2-light windows on each floor (restored), re-entrant of right wing has 2 similar windows at 1st floor (on different levels), blocked openings at ground floor; gable of this wing has mullioned windows of 4 lights at ground floor, 3 lights above, (restored), and gable coping with kneelers. Chimneys at left gable, right-hand side of each wing, and on ridge at junction of main range. South front (to garden) has coupled gables at the junction of the builds; that on the right, (which is the south gable of the earlier wing), has recessed mullioned windows of 6 round-headed lights at ground floor (sill probably lowered) and 4 similar lights above; that on the left has two 2-light windows on each floor, all with chamfered mullions; copings to both gables, and a stone spout between them. Modern addition to this side of main range, with catslide roof.

Interior: altered at various periods, but earlier main range has 3 king-post roof trusses of exceptionally large scantling, all with V-struts, longitudinal bracing to the ridge, and carpenters marks of long diagonal strokes "I" "II" and "III" respectively; large blocked square mortices and double mortices in the tie-beams suggesting former use as wall-plates. Otherwise the principal features of interest are 2 stone fireplaces in the former outer side wall of the C16 crosswing; that at ground floor large, rectangular, with moulded jambs and rising stop, and that in the chamber above smaller and Tudor-arched.
