The following building shall be added to the list;

CHARLEY OAKS IN CHARNWOOD SK 41 SE 8/10002 Charley Hall and attached outbuilding range and walls II

Country house. C15/C16 or earlier monastic origins with considerable C18-early C20 alterations and additions. Granite and slate rubble, part stuccoed, and small section of red brick. Stone and brick dressings. Swithland slate roofs with stone and brick ridge and end stacks. Complex irregular plan incorporating an L-plan range of monastic origin with large additions to north-east. Mainly 2 storeys and attic, the large neo-Tudor range dated 1890 is on the far left of the front. 2-window range of stone mullion and transom windows with casements in the timber-framed attic over. Projecting gabled porch with double doors in round-headed arch. Single-storey former ballroom extension to right dated 1904 has large bay window. Behind is a range with 2- and 3-light casements and dormers and part of C16 mullioned window. This range has thick walls and is likely to be of medieval origin. To right of this a range of similar period, which was raised late C19 and has casements and the outline of a large blocked window. A brick range to far right. Extending behind these last ranges an outbuilding wing with various stable doors and windows. The inner wall has a 2-centred arched doorway and remains ofmullioned windows, all blocked. To rear of the main ranges are further mullion and transom windows in the 1890 range and glazing-bar sashes and casements in the other ranges. Extending to rear from the house is a single-storey section which continues as a high rubblestone wall bending round to near the outbuilding wing. Extending from the 1890 range another wall with gateway in Gibbs style but incorporating dressed stone from early mullion windows. INTERIOR. In the main part of the house the middle range has a curved-principal roof probably C16. Below this on the ground floor is a blocked 4-centre arch, corresponding on the other side of the range to the C16 window. The 1890 range has margin stained glass and contemporary fireplaces and fittings. The outbuilding range has massive beams and joists to one section and one cruck truss. HISTORY. Charley Hall incorporates the remains of an Augustinian priory which was founded mid C12 and amalgamated with that at nearby Ulverscroft in 1465. It is likely that significant fragments of walling survive from periods before the priory's dissolution in 1539.
