HUNTWICK WITH FOULBY NOSTELL PARK SE 4017 AND NOSTELL 6/35 Farm building known as - "Monks Refectory" approx. 100 metres west of church of St. Michael and All Saints. GV II* Farm building of uncertain former function, but perhaps refectory or lodgings to former Nostell Priory. Perhaps C15, altered in C17 or C18, and subsequently. Coursed sandstone (some squared, some rubble), with some hand- made brick, graduated stone slate roof; with substantial retrains of timber framing internally. Long rectangular range of at least 7 bays, with rear outshut to 3 bays at right-hand (east) end. South front, 2 storeys, apparently of 2 builds, has chamfered doorways to the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th bays, the last of these with a 4-centred arched head and deeply-chamfered surround; a vertical joint to the right of this, and different (larger) masonry beyond this with a large hollow-moulded drip mould at 1st floor and the wall above slightly set back; 4-centred arched doorways with deep chamfer to the 1st and 3rd bays of this part, (the 2nd altered as a window), and between these in the 2nd bay, the head of a wide 4-centred arched former entrance, blocked and now containing a narrow 2-light mullioned window; various windows in both parts and on both levels, mostly with slightly- recessed chamfered mullions. A louvred dormer at each end of the roof. Rear: first 2 bays (west end) of large coursed blocks at ground floor (blocked slot near the centre suggesting position of former wall-post) and rubble above; a damaged 4-centred-arched doorway at this end, with deeply chamfered surround; further east, various small openings, including a 2-light window (lacking mullion), 3 slit breathers to the upper level and 4 low windows to the outshut (2 with recessed chamfered mullions). Louvred dormer, and some roof slates dislodged at this end. East gable of ramdom rubble at the lower level, hand-made brick above, with exposed end of ridge and brace in the apex. Interior: storeyed timber framing with aisle to 3 easternmost bays (where the framing is most complete but upper floor removed): wall-posts with jowels at mid-level and at the heads, supporting cross beams and tie-beams, with concave braces to the aisle-plate and empty mortices for braces to the tie- beams; 3rd frame from east end has cross beam with raised cusped and traceried decoration (probably ex situ); all visible tie-beams have stud- holes in the soffits (suggesting former partitioning at 1st floor); front wall posts missing from 1st, 4th and 5th frames from east end; king-post roof trusses with bracing to the ridge; 3 pairs of purlins. Various inserted partition walls in western half of range.
