SMARDALE HALL AND ADJOINING BUILDINGS - List Entry

  • Description

    "Buildings date from C15/C16 centuries. Present Hall of coursed rubble has a tower at each corner, banded just below top. Graduated slate roof with stone chimneys; ball finials to conical tower roofs. 2 storeys, 6 bays....the hay loft was once the Great Hall and some decorative plasterwork survives on the eastern wall. The relative thicknesses of their walls suggests that the south-east tower pre-dates the other 3 which may have been added for symmetry. A c1670 plan shows a C14 tower-house in the east wing; this was built by the Smerdales (ie pre 1388) and the rest of the house by the Warcops (ie pre 1580)....."
