Apethorpe Hall, Apethorpe, Northamptonshire. Record of opening up - Volume 5 - Historic Buildings Report

Author(s): Nick Hill

This report is a record of various individual features uncovered during repair works at Apethorpe Hall in 2012, mainly to the central hall range. Most of these features are of late medieval date, and contribute insights to the early development of the house. The features recorded include: three blocked or lost medieval doorways; a roof structure with unusual carpenter’s marks drawn onto the timbers with a red crayon; a raking brace which provides evidence of the early timber structure below the Matted Passage, further details of the oak stud wall of c.1692 to the Matted Passage, and an unbonded wall junction to the south end of the range, indicating that the detached block in this position once extended further to the south.
