5/18 Boats Hall - 29.7.55 -- II

Manor farmhouse. C16 with C17 and C19 alterations. Mainly timber framed and plastered; C17 red brick parapet gable ends. The side walls of the C17 service end are also of red brick, plastered over. Plaintiled roof. 2 storeys and attics. 3-cell form. 5 windows, mainly C19 small-paned casements; 2 first floor sash windows with glazing bars. 3 doorways with C19 doorcases. To left a 6-panel door with glazed upper section and doorcase with frieze and cornice. Central lobby entrance with C19 half-glazed door, reeded architrave and cornice. To right mid C20 French windows, also with reeded architrave and cornice. 5 dormers with mid C20 windows. Internal and gable stacks, 2 with moulded brick bases. Victorianised interior. The hall has a bridging beam cased in moulded plasterwork and a similarly-moulded cornice: this is early C17 work, said to be for the North family. Remains of similar work in the hall chamber. Moulded bridging beams in parlour and parlour chamber. A small section of studding is visible on the first floor, with a blocked window with cavetto mullions. Small evidence for queen-post roof; the present roof seems to be a C17 replacement when the attics were made. Against the service room is a partition with large fielded panels, probably of C17 date, and a large door made from earlier panelling. Intact slatted cheese room. C19 entrance lobby with straight stair: stick balusters, ramped and wreathed handrail. Fine encircling moat.
