Full Description

Frampton Hall was built in 1720 near the site of the old moated hall. {1}{2} In the garden there are two rebuilt arches with Norman shafts and scalloped capitals. They are believed to be from the earlier phase of St Mary's Church. {3} Small country house built in 1725 for Coney Tunnard and extended in the late eighteenth century and skilfully remodelled in matching style in 1873. Construction in red brick in Flemish boned with limestone ashlar and render dressings with a lead roof. The central entrance bay bears an inscribed cartouch with the date 1725 surmounted by a rabbit (a symbol of Coney). The hall retains many features. For the full description and the legal address of this listed building please refer to the appropriate List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. {4} The Victorian phase of alterations seem to have taken an odd form of quasi-medievalism. Garden ornaments and walls are decorated in a mixture of Romanesque and Tudor styles, and barns with stepped gables and also look Tudor revival. {5} Frampton Hall, Frampton. Partially extant 18th century farmstead. Loose courtyard with two sides of the courtyard formed by working agricultural buildings. The farmhouse is detached from the main working complex. There has been a partial loss (less than 50%) of traditional buildings. Located within a Church and/or Manor farm group. Large modern sheds are located on the site. {6}
