TL 51 SE MARGARET RODING Marks Hall 5/45 II

Manor house, C16 or earlier, altered in C18 and C19. Timber-framed and brick, roofed with slates and tiles. Originally a timber-framed building, consisting of hall block (whether open or 2-storey) aligned NNW-SSE, with 2-storey crosswing at each end (service wing to S), forming a rectangular plan. Large external chimney stack to rear (E) of hall block, C16, enclosed by later extensions. S wing extended to E, with external end stack, C17/18. The house was reported by Morant to be 'a good brick building" in 1768, indicating that it had been encased in brickwork by that date. Extensively remodelled in early C19 with new brick casing, chimney stacks to N and S and a continuous gabled roof over hall block and both crosswings, with W pitch slated, E pitch tiled. Rear extensions, slated and tiled, C19. 2 storeys. W elevation, yellow-grey brickwork with 5 plain giant pilasters. Ground floor, 4 early C19 sash windows, central 4-panel door with plain light over and porch with wooden columns, one small C20 casement window to each side. First floor, 4 early C19 sash windows with louvred shutters. Despite the extensive remodelling the original timber structure is perceptible internally, with jowled storey posts and stop-chamfered ceiling beams. No access to roof space, but the present roof will have destroyed most of the original roofs above tiebeam level. Moated site, RCHM 4.
