1/20 Churton Hall



Hall, 1569 (?), oak framed, replaced in brick at rear, with grey slate roof, probably formerly thatched. Externally restored with much framing renewed; internally the plan is altered. 2 storeys, E-shaped. The central portion has heavy timbers, 1 cross-rail and narrow panels. Inner walls of cross-wings have chevron braces and the gables have lozenges and concave lozenges (probably confirming painted date on porch). Front of right gable is slightly jettied; upper part of central portion is rendered. Projecting 1-storey gabled oak-framed porch right of centre has arched entrance of oak with rose; split balusters in open sides. Above the porch are 2 armorial bearings on octagonal plaques: to left a shield has white chevron band with 3 daggers or above and 3 below, to right white horse's head in circle. Massive lateral sandstone chimney, left; against left end is a small slate-roofed brick leanto, probably C19; 2 brick ridge chimneys. Porch has painted board WB 1569 EB; massive door of 3 oak boards on heavy wrought iron hinges. A pair of small 4-pane casements above porch; 2 replaced casements to each storey left of porch; wall right of porch unpierced; one replaced window to each storey in each cross-gable. Interior: Altered ingle-nook in left parlour - an oak hood-beam now in main ceiling suggests that lateral chimney was a C17 extension. 2 heavy chamfered main beams of oak in rear parlour of right cross-wing. Oak boards are visible in bedroom over left parlour. 2 C17 panelled oak doors upstairs. Roof timbers look C19.
