5/88 Yew Tree Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now house. Probably late C16.learly C17 with considerable
later additions and alterations. Timber framed with plastered brick
infill on high sandstone plinth, plain tiled roof. Baffle-entry type
extended and converted (see the interruption in the stonework to the
plinth directly beneath the stack, suggesting the existence of a former
entrance at this point). 2 storeys and gable-lit attic; apparently 2 but
probably 3 structural bays. Framing: 3 square panels from cill to wall
plate, short tension braces; two 3-light C20 leaded casements to each
floor with one of 2 lights in position of former entrance; central ridge
stack re-built in mid-C19 purplish-brown brick. The left-hand gable end
is now brick clad and the right-hand one has planted framing. Long mid-
to-late C19 painted brick extension at right angles to rear, with catslide
roof and three C20 dormers in roof slope, may in fact incorporate some
earlier work (see the sandstone plinth to the right-hand wall). Interior
not inspected, but said to contain some moulded plasterwork in one of the
upstairs rooms.
