11/44 Newstead Priory Farmhouse and screen wall adjoining 19.10.51 to left (formerly listed as Farmhouse incorporating remains of Newstead Priory)

GV I

Farmhouse and adjoining screen wall, incorporating former monastic range of Gilbertine Priory and re-using medieval masonry. C12-C13 undercroft with C15-C16 first-floor section, extended and converted to house in early C19 for Yarborough Estate. Later C19 bay windows and extensions to right and rear. Main range of squared limestone and rubble with ashlar dressings, rendered to front and part of left return; rear extension in coursed limestone rubble with brick dressings; right extension rendered; brick stacks. Westmorland slate roof to main range, Welsh slate roof to bay windows and later extensions. Plan: 2-room central-entrance hall east front, with vaulted undercroft of 2 by 2 bays forming ground-floor left room, former entrance hall now opened out to ground-floor right room, stairs to rear; double-depth kitchen/lobby extension to right, single-room extension to rear. East front: 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows; single- window extension set back to right, single-bay screen wall to left. Chamfered plinth. Round-arched entrance to right of centre with recessed half-glazed panelled door and plain overlight, flanked by single ground- floor canted bay windows to each side with sills, plate-glass sashes and moulded cornices. C20 casement to right extension. Round-headed first- floor sashes in flush wooden architraves with glazing bars and sills. Moulded wooden eaves board. Stone-coped gables with shaped kneelers. Central axial stack and end stack to right with dentilled cornices. Double- span roof to extension with coped gables, shaped kneelers and corniced end stacks. Screen wall forms continuation of front: plinth, round-headed coved niche, ashlar coping ramped down to left between piers with ashlar ball finials. Rear: ashlar quoins to main range, brick quoins to wing. Main range has steps down to half-glazed 2-fold door beneath timber lintel, and C16 3-light first-floor painted ashlar window with 4-centred arch lights, moulded mullions and C19 glazing bars, beneath hood-mould with carved bust stops. 16-pane sash to wing in flush wooden architrave and brick surround with segmental arch containing re-set medieval carved stone head. Right return, main range: central ground-floor round-headed window with 12-pane sliding sash flanked by 12-pane sliding sash and C20 casement; central first-floor 16-pane sash. Interior. Quadripartite vaulting to ground floor left has plastered rubble ceiling and chamfered ashlar round-arched ribs with diamond stops, supported on moulded corbels and central octagonal pier (perhaps a later replacement) with a moulded capital. A second, plastered, pier to the east, supporting an extension of the vaulting into the bay window, is probably a C19 insertion incorporating an original corbel. Former square-headed doorway to south wall, now a window. Remains of arch in north wall revealed in alterations to door from ground floor right to kitchen. C19 features include: wall cupboard to ground floor left with geometrical glazing, elliptical-arched recesses to ground floor right with archivolts and scrolled consoles, similar arch to entrance passage. Newstead-on Ancholme Priory, founded before 1164, was dissolved in 1538. Nattes' drawing shows a second 3-light first-floor north window which may have been removed in C19, or blocked and obscured by rear wing. The surviving medieval structure is variously interpreted as refectory or chapter house. An impressive adjoining C12 round-arched doorway was removed to Brocklesby Park soon after 1812 (probably when house was built) and subsequently lost.
