3/48 Stockbridge House 28.8.1953 - II*

House, now old people's home, mid-C17 with some early C19 alterations. Sandstone, random in hall but coursed in cross-wing which also has copings on kneelers. Concrete tiles. L-shaped plan with hall and cross-wing, with central axial chimney stack and subsidiary stack (probably C19) above hall gable. Original front (now facing garden) altered in early C19 (sundial above doorway bears inscription 'Made by J. Blackburn 1829') so as to have a roughly central doorway with chamfered jambs and Tudor-arched lintel under a hoodmould and to its left, on both floors, a 3-light mullioned window with a similar one to the right on first floor. However, below this on ground floor is the original 8-light double-chamfered mullioned and transomed hall window (with a hoodmould); this has a king-mullion and ovolo inner chamfers.

Original rear of building is now entrance front and was remodelled in early Cl9 with a roughly central doorway with panelled and glazed door, a 3-light window on each floor to right, one similar window to left on first floor and, presumably, on ground floor though this is now hidden by a C20 outshut. Cross-wing projects to Left with a 3-light stepped window in gable, a 5-light mullioned window on first floor (both double-chamfered under hoodmoulds), a Cl9 4-light window to left on ground floor and, on right, 3 original windows related to staircase.
