SJ 99 NE STALYBRIDGE MILLBROOK

4/155 Staley Hall and adjoining 9.8.66 west wing

G.V. II*

Manor house. Timber-framed structure of late C16 (although altered at later dates) clad in stonework of the C17 and early C18. Squared rubble front, watershot rear and graduated stone slate roof. Central hall with screens passage, upper east crosswing, west service crosswing, a 2- storey porch and a long 2-storey shippon/service wing to the extreme west. Otherwise all of 3 storeys. An imposing near- symmetrical facade with 3 large gables (the central one and 2 crosswings) separated by 2 smaller gables on the projecting porch and bay 4 which adopts a similar form. 5- light windows in the crosswings, 4-light in the central bay 3-light--in bays 2 and 4 and 2-light in each major gable; each has double-chamfered cavetto-moulded stone mullions and continuous dripmoulds. Stone quoins. Segmental-headed stone arch above porch door and dressed circular features to the 2 minor gables. The rear is less impressive with only 2 gables, a projecting plinth, a blocked screens passage door, a small brick lean-to (although on an original stone base) and 2, 3 and 4-light double-chamfered stone mullion windows. Much of the C16 timber-framed structure survives internally including the main floors and internal walls, many of the main posts of the external walls, 2 arched screens passage doorways and an interesting feature whereby the first floor crosswing rooms are jettied over the hall. The queen-post roof has cusped wind bracing and incorporates a long room on the attic storey which was later ceiled by means of curved collars between each pair of rafters. This feature runs across the main range and crosswing. The shippon/service wing which is probably C17 has a similar timber frame and later stone cladding in the service part which has a cambered tie-beam queen-strut roof. The shippon has fish- bone king-post roof trusses probably dating from late C17 or early C18. Seat of the De Staveley family from as early as the C14. One of Greater Manchester's most impressive halls which has been little altered since the early C18 except through decay which is now well established.
