TREDINGTON SP24SW 4/185 Longdon Manorhouse

GV II*

Manor house. Possibly medieval in origin, with C16 and C17 additions. Squared, coursed limestone with plinth, quoins and coped gables. Tile roofs with stone end and lateral stacks with 2 flues diagonally set and with moulded plinth and cornice. 2 storeys plus attic; 4-window range. T-shaped plan. To centre a plank door within an ovolo-moulded stone surround. To left a renewed 3-light concave-moulded mullioned window. To left the lateral stack, with a 2-light, concave-moulded mullioned window to left. To right of door a 3-light wood leaded casement, with a single chamfered light to right. To first floor are three 2-light ovolo-aoulded mullioned windows. Extending forward from left a one-bay projection with a 3-light wood casement to 2 floors, and an ovolo-moulded 2-light mullioned window above. 2 small later gabled dormers in roof of main range. To rear, the range is divided into 2 building periods, that to right earlier, and of rougher rubble. Within this is a Tudor ovolo-moulded arch with modern door. To centre right a later square-headed ovolo moulded doorway with overlight. To centre and right a 3-light and a 4-light concave-moulded mullioned and transomed window. Above are three 3- and 4-light concave-moulded mullioned windows. These windows probably date from C16. Above Tudor doorway, in centre of wall, a blocked window. To left, in later range, a 4-light ovolo-moulded mullioned window to ground and first floors. All windows have hood moulds and label stops. To right of house a service range of one storey plus attic. 3 straight-chamfered 3-light mullioned windows, a single chamfered light and plain stone doorway. A lean-to shelter over doorway rests on stone plinth and wood pillars. Interior: ovolo-moulded spine beams throughout ground floor except in later service range. Stone flagged floors. C17 open well staircase at side of main stack, rising to attics. Heavy turned balusters. First floor also has ovolo-moulded spine cross beams. 4-centred-arched chamfered stone fireplace. Trenched purlin roof with collars. Also in attic a small ashlar chamfered stone fireplace with 4-centred-arch. Many doors are 6-panelled with moulded wood surrounds.
