Slade. (OS 6" 1968)

Slade is a large, two storey house built of rubble, with slate roofs and brick stacks. The plan and elevation are very irregular and the building of various periods, but mainly 16th and 18th century. The two-storeyed porch is 16th century. (Listings Description, 1956)


Clark, A., 2013, Slade (Un-published). SDV358182.

The seat of the Slades in the thirteenth century, the Coles from the fourteenth to the seventeenth
century, then the Saverys. The exterior of the house is modest; the windows of the main south front was uniformly Georgianised in the mid twentieth century. In the garden are fragments of the older parts of the upper cross-wing which was demolished in the 1960s. The chief architectural interest is the late medieval hall.
