5/51 Hall & Chapel


Hall, built piecemeal around an earlier core, from 1811, but chiefly of 1850-51 by John Linnell Bond, in a Jacobethan style reminiscent of the old hall. Chapel added following the conversion of the 8th Earl of Gainsborough to Roman Catholicism, by Charles Alban Buckler, 1868 - coursed rubble with quoins and string courses, stone tiled roof throughout. 2 storeys with attics. Assymmetrical south front with octagonal, ogee capped turrets on outer angles, 2 full-height squared bay windows in shaped gables, various tall mullion and transom windows and to the right, 3 bays with tall sash windows, and a 4-centred arched projecting porch with glazed double entrance doors, with a 12-light mullion and and transomed window with cambered head over the porch. Continuous eaves parapet throughout: a detail borrowed from the old hall. Right of the house, and attached to it, is the chapel in C13 style, with 2 paired and foiled lights to nave, which terminates in an apse with decorated eaves cornice. Otherwise, the chapel is very plain to the south, though on the north, a large projecting porch and an adjoining vestry beneath a gable containing a rose window, and terminating in a bell turret, are more flamboyant.

West front of house in a different style with triple-light sash windows to ground floor, venetian windows above. A curved 2-storey flanking wall links this with a further large advanced to the west, and running N-S, in Jacobethan style, with gables and a large octagonal turret ornamented with a lozenge motif taken from the old hall. Ornamental parapet, gable finials etc.

Rear of hall reveals piecemeal nature of its construction. In the centre, is a 3-gabled range belonging to an earlier building, with coped gable and flat stone lintels to casement windows, but partially concealed by brick-built link to 4-gabled range to right, with gothick lattice-work to windows.
