HARTFIELD Bolebroke Castle 1. 5208 (formerly listed as Bolebroke) TQ 43 NE 5/90 26.11.53 II* 2. C16. Red brick (English bond). The east front has 4 small gables of 3 storeys each and one large gable at the north end of 4 storeys. The latter has kneelers, the south one corbelled with an octagonal finial above, the north one meeting an octagonal buttress carried up from the ground and terminating in a round finial. Diamond or lozenge shaped finial above the apex of the gable. The return of this gable on the north side is similar but a modern bay window has been built out in front of it. Windows on the east front in stone surrounds with stone mullions and in 5 of them also transoms. The south front has a similar gable with a ball finial above the apex but no finials above the kneelers. Windows as on the east front in stone surrounds with stone mullions and in 5 of them also transoms. The south front has a similar gable with a ball finial above the apex but no finials above the kneelers. Windows as on the east front. Late C17 L-shaped west wing of red brick and grey headers. Modern additions to the north and south of this. The inside has apparently been modernised but in a room facing west, presumably the original kitchen, is an enormous fireplace with a depressed stone arch.
