3/88 Noseley Hall



Country House. Largely c1725, possibly on the foundations of an Elizabethan
house, modernised and altered in late C19. Ironstone and brick, mostly rendered
over, with Welsh slate roofs. Two storeyed with basements and attics, u-plan..
South front of eleven bays, 4 - 3 - 4, the central three advanced. Giant Tuscan
pilasters mark all the angles. Doorway in centre is in stone case, with lugged
and minutely carved architrave, the family crest in the keystone flanked by emblems,
and a pediment supported on consoles. In the outer bays are wide, shallow canted
bay windows with three sashes and balustrated parapets. Fenestration throughout
is of 12-light sash windows with cambered heads and stuccoed keystones, the central
one of the central bay carved into foliate design, and all windows have outer
blind cases. Balustraded parapet, with roof with hipped dormer attic windows
recessed behind it. This parapet replaced a plainer one, and the Tuscan columns
replaced Corinthian when the house was refurbished in c1890. Flanking the central
bays, two lead down pipes are richly wrought with the family crest and emblems,
and are dated 1728. West front is of five bays, with a four bay wing slightly
recessed beyond. Central doorway inserted in late C19 alterations, in projecting
architrave with engaged Tuscan columns and balustrading. 2-light sash windows
with cambered heads. Four bay wing, which is of less height and has brick sill
band concealed behind the render, has 18-light sash windows, including one wide
triple light sash window to ground floor. Parapet detail continued from south
front. Rear elevation forms courtyard. Brick to main range which is of five
bays with single storeyed pent corridor containing two doorways and cambered
head lights. Sash windows above to principal floor and first floor with cambered
heads, mostly of 18-lights. Full height round headed window lighting stairs.
Additional flat roofed single bay projecting pavilion to left with triple light
sash window in each of its three upper floors. Wood eaves cornice. West wing
is of coursed ironstone rubble, two storeyed with basement, and 12-light sash
windows with cambered heads. East wing is the service wing and has single storeyed
pent corridor with three bays of open arcading at its left hand end, and has
an ironstone plinth. This wing housed the kitchens of the C18 house.

Inside, the plan and much decorative detail is associated with the C18 house.
The Stone Hall, which rises the full height of the house, is articulated by
Corinthian pilasters and panels, then, above the cornice, pilasters carrying
foliate swags flank various paintings, including two of a favourite horse, Ringtail,
of c1725. The painted ceiling is attributed to Verrio but may be from his studio.
In it, reputedly, the 7th Baronet who was partly responsible for rebuilding the
hall is carried by Hercules and Fortune to Jupiter. Oak and gilt panelled dining
room. Study with ceiling by Italian stuccadori; a central oval and flanking
panels with foliate decoration are contained in a heavily wrought framework of
tiny rosettes. This room contains, and was designed to take, a series of paintings
by Pannini : Cappricci of Roman antiquities. Early C18 staircase; open string
stair with twisted balusters, three to a tread and carved tread ends and dado
panel. Fine plaster cornices and marble fireplaces, and good door furniture

The house has been in the hands of the Hazelrigg family since the C15, and the
C18 rebuilding was begun by Robert Hazelrigg, d1721 and probably continued by
his son, the 7th Baronet.
