5/67 Manor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Early and late C16. Timber-framed, faced and partly encased in
late C19 red brick, the remainder rendered. Part clay, part black-glazed,
pantiles. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick shaft is set
between the lower and higher ends of the house. Part 2 storeys, part 2 storeys
and attic. Various C20 casement windows, and one large 4-light reproduction
mullion-and-transome window. The older part of the house, to the west of the
stack, is in 3 bays, divided on the ground floor into a 2-bay main room and an
adjoining service room. The main room has a plain exposed ceiling with
unchamfered joists. In the front wall, the evidence for a large 5-light
diamond-mullioned window. On the upper floor, the whole area forms one large
room: 2 open trusses with cambered tie-beams and long solid arched braces,
ceiled off above so that the rafters are inaccessible. Blocked original
diamond-mullioned windows in the side and gable walls. To the east of the
stack is a late C16 parlour wing with which the stack is intergral. Ground-
floor ceiling with very fine cross-beams; multiple roll-mouldings and roll-
moulded joists and cornice. The moulding is continued down all the main
posts. In the gable wall, originally jettied, was a mullion-and-transome
oriel window, with short flanking side windows in which the moulded mullions
survive. Plain timber lintels to both ground-and first-floor fireplaces.
Original upper ceilings. Newel stair beside stack.
