10/38 Hammerton Hall 16.11.1954 - II*

House, probably c.1600, with east cross-wing added C19th. Slobbered rubble with sandstone dressings and slate roof. E-plan. 2 storeys with attic. On each side of the central porch, on both floors, is a 6-light mullioned window with outer chamfer, inner hollow chamfer, and hood. The left-hand cross-wing has the remains of a chamfered surround, with a hood, now containing a modern door and window. On the 1st floor is a window similar to those flanking the porch. The 3-light attic window has an ogee head and hood. The gable has a coping, and the west wall has a large projecting stack with offsets. The right-hand (east) cross-wing has punched quoins. On the ground floor is a window of 3 large lights with chamfered stone surround and mullions, with a hood. On the 1st floor is a window similar to those flanking the porch, but with 3 mullions only remaining. The attic has a blocked 3-light window matching that to the other wing and either reconstructed or a copy. The gable has a coping. The gabled porch oversails on the 1st floor with a cyma moulding. This floor has an ovolo-moulded mullioned and transomed window, with 12 lights, all blocked, at the front, and 6 lights on each return wall, with some blocked. Above is a 5-light attic window matching those to the wings, and a gable coping. The outer doorway is moulded with a Tudor-arched head and hood. The inner doorway is chamfered with a similar head. An early door of studded vertical planks remains. Central range of rear has some double-chamfered windows on each floor, mostly blocked. Interior. At the left of the passage immediately inside the front door, now partly covered by a later stair, is a doorway in a timber partition with ogee doorhead, and a plank door, split horizontally and with early hinges. Other internal walls are formed by wattle-and-daub panels in timber framing, by vertical framed panelling, and by square panelling with plain chamfered rails and muntins. The east cross-wing has softwood beams, but a doorway leading into it on the 1st floor, from the central part of the house, is of chamfered stone with a Tudor-arched head. The west cross-wing has, in its front room, a wide chamfered fireplace with segmental head. A door leading to the rear room has a deep hollow moulding and a Tudor-arched head. In the central section, to the east of the cross-wing, is a spiral stone stair. A view of the house from the rear,c.1720, appears in Buck, Samuel, Yorkshire Sketchbook, reproduced in facsimile, Wakefield, 1979. ~ -
