Bockenfield Manor, Northumberland

The small but extremely quaint seventeenth-century manor house of the Herons is a narrow building with a frontage of sixty feet to the south, and has a central doorway with two three-light windows on either side. Between the windows and on the external angles of the house are flat pilasters of V jointed ashlar courses, which terminate above a cable moulding in a carved finial. The doorway is flanked by columns worked in spiral form, which support a curved pediment enclosing a shield, helmet and mantling, the fromer bearing the arms of Heron; gules, a chevron between three herons argent. All the windows were originally of the same design, being of three lights with transoms, and enclosed by an architrave formed of an unusual bobbin-like ornament. In the interior is a spacious staircase, with turned wooden balusters, but there is little lse of interest. The surface of the adjoining land is very uneven, and indicates buried foundations of considerable buildings.
