SK 60 NE 2/29 19.10.51 Ingarsby Old Hall and Chapel and Garden Wall

GV II*

Country house. Late C15 and C16 - C18, dated 1706, with C19/C20 alterations. Ashlar with plinth of coursed rubble stone in part and Swithland slate roofs partly twin span and of Welsh slate to rear. Brick end stacks. Stone coped gables in part. L plan, the late C15 range projecting forwards on left, a 1930's linking range between it and main range. Main range of 2½ storeys and basement of 3 C20 mullion and transom windows with leaded lights : 3-light, 1-light, 3-light. On ground floor a similar 3-light either side a central gabled stone porch. Doorway with 2-leaved door up 3 stone steps. 1-light over. Basement window to right. 2 2-light hipped dormers. On right end a 1 storey extension with 2 2-light stone mullion windows. A 2 storey extension to the rear, with 2-light hipped dormer. To the left of the main range the linking range. A pair of 2-light stone mullion and transom windows with above, and set back, a 3-light stone mullion window. The late C15 range is of 2 1/2 storeys of stone mullion windows with hood moulds. The leaded lights have Tudor arched heads. On facing gable a 3-light both floors, the lower blocked. In gable a simple 2-light without hood mould. The stone coped gables of this range have kneelers and finials. On right inner return 2 3-lights on both floors with central ground floor 1-light. Doorway to left. Similar windows and massive projecting stone stack with C20 brick flue on garden front to left. This range is called the Chapel, apparently because fragments of stained glass were in windows in C19. However a large 1st floor fireplace with garderobe to right suggests a domestic use. Fireplace has moulded Tudor arch. On a window sill a loose stone brought from elsewhere and inscribed W.G. 1698 or 9 may also refer to refronting of main range. Within the main range a fireplace with 2 Ionic pilasters and alabaster plaque over, showing arms of Cave and Whalley and dated 1579. In central 1st floor windows are reset fragments of probably C16 painted glass showing crowns, fleurs-de-lys and portcullis. A garden wall of coursed squared stone, c2m high and mostly Swithland slate coped extends from left end of wing round the garden. Ingarsby was owned by the Lords Maynard from c1640 to the C19.
