Three-storeyed and three-bayed hall, now farmhouse. Late C15 or early C16. Threapland Hall probably originated as a transitional type of fortified house, but was not a purely fortified residence. Threapland was a capital messuage documented in 1316 and 1392. The present building is C17. A survey of 1994 revealed a previously unknown newel stair surviving to full height, a garderobe chamber and shute, arched fireplaces and original mullioned windows. (PastScape)

Hall now farmhouse. Late C15 or early C16 with C19 alterations. Extremely thick roughcast walls under graduated greenslate roof with stone chimney stacks. 3 storeys, 3 bays. C20 door in chamfered surround under hoodmould lintel with weathered inscription and date 1709. Sash windows in original chamfered surrounds under hoodmoulds. Left side chamfered-surround stair window. C19 extension to rear and further single-storey kitchen extension. Interior has angle Tudor-arched doorway leading to newel staircase (in thickness of wall) ascending to first and second floor. Second floor has externally blocked windows which are visible on the inside, but that floor now used as attic. Home of a branch of the Salkelds of Whitehall (Allhallows C.P.) from the early C17.
