SE23SE TEMPLE CRESCENT, Beeston Hill 714-1/10/541 (North side (off)) 07/10/85 The Manor House, Cad Beeston (Formerly Listed as: BEESTON HILL No.8, Cad Beeston) (Formerly Listed as: BEESTON HILL No.9, Cad Beeston)


House, now offices. Early C15, with early C19 additions to NW. The whole group restored 1985. The original timber-framed structure surviving is of 2 bays, composed of a high (restored) stone sill wall, the principal posts set originally on stylobates. Deep curved braces from the principals support the wall-plate, no longer at eaves level because the pitch of the roof has been reduced. The much-restored walling above the stonework is infilled with a horizontal timber (bressumer) and short vertical studs. Wooden glazing bars re-use earlier mortices and peg holes. A very large har-hung oak door (post-1985) has been set in on the right, with a corresponding door on the rear suggesting a cross-passage. INTERIOR: a 'period' staircase has been built inside the entrance and there is much replaced timber; wall posts are chamfered on the inner face; spine beams supporting the upper floor (?C17) have scarfed joints above the S end wall fireplace. The upper floor is reached from the staircase in the S-facing bay and the roof is open. The trusses are the C15 form recorded in York buildings: a cambered tie beam, central crown post held by downward-curving braces and carrying the collar purlin which extend the full length of the range and on which the collars and common rafters rest. The medieval hall was open to the roof; the roof pitch was probably altered when a floor was inserted. Attached former terraced cottages, now offices, have some re-used timbers in roof; stone walls and rendered brick, Classical door surround with cornice and blocking course, 2 tripartite sashes to each floor. HISTORICAL NOTE: the C12 manor of Beeston was held in 2 parts, William Paynel owning Cad Beeston; by the C15 the de Rome family was in possession, Peter de Rome being Lord of the Manor in 1425. Dendrochronology has provided a date of AD1420 for the timbers.

Now offices of Bradlor Developments Ltd. (Beeston Local History Society: Beeston, Rediscovered Heritage: 1992-: 60).
