15/120 Strickland Hall and stables adjoining, 6.2.68 (formerly listed as Low Hall)

GV II*

Farmhouse and stables, now private house. Mid C16 with late C16 additions and mid C17 alterations, for the Crackenthorpe family. Mixed limestone rubble walls with flush quoins. Graduated greenslate roof with C20 red sandstone coping; large rubble chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 4 bays with rear right-angled 2-storey, 5-bay stable range, partly domestic, forming overall T-shape. The present facade was originally the rear and the off-centre C17 2-bay gabled stone porch was formerly the dairy, its roof now reduced in height. Porch doorway is probably C20 but appears older. Returns have 2-light stone-mullioned windows. Facade has ground-floor 2- and 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned windows, the right with transoms, and small chamfered-surround windows. Upper-floor 3-light mullioned-and-transomed windows and small chamfered-surround windows. Rear 2-, 3- and 4-light stone-mullioned windows and 2 mullioned-and-transomed windows between which is a defaced coat-of-arms. Owner considers that the rear stable range is the oldest part. Left pointed-arched doorway and 2- and 3-light stone-mullioned windows. Further right flat-headed doorways and loft doorways. The rear has a stair projection which covers part of one of the stone-mullioned windows in rear of main hall. 2- and 3-light stone-mullioned windows, nearly all of which have been blocked. Interior of main hall has large C16 segmental-arched stone fireplace. Blocked spiral stone staircase. End room has elaborate late C16 patterned plasterwork ceiling in poor state of preservation. C17 oak-panelled walls. Simpler patterned plaster frieze in bedroom above. Domestic part of stable has added semicircular staircase. See RCHM, Westmorland, 1936, p.222, plates 17, 48 and 50. Lower extensions at either side of hall and lower extension to stable range, are not of interest.
