- Townhouse Farmhouse and
attached wall and cottage

- II

Farmhouse. Probably late medieval in origin but substantially rebuilt
in the C18 and C19. Red brick replacing earlier timber framing; plain
tile roof; brick ridge stack. H-plan: single-cell hall range aligned
north-south facing east with flanking crosswings. Staircase wing of
circa 1700 to the rear. 2 storeys and attic with dentilled eaves band.
A pair of single-bay gabled crosswings flank a recessed 1:1:1 bay hall
range with a central gabled porch. Mainly C20 leaded casements within
C18 and C19 openings with segmental heads. The porch has a nail studded
door with 3-centred head and a first floor window with segmental pointed
head: it is an addition to the main house. The left hand return of
the left hand wing has 2 bays of windows with gauged brick heads; the
upper ones are blind. Labourer's cottage attached to the right by a
brick wall. It faces the farmyard. Early C19. Red brick; plain tile
roof with raised verges; brick integral end stack. One storey and gable-
lit attic with dentilled eaves band. Segmental headed door to the left,
blocked door to the right. Interior. In the hall are chamfered and
stopped ceiling beams and joists and a 3-centred arch fireplace towards
the north end with cupboards to each side. Behind the stack is an entrance
passage, probably the site of a through-passage; this sugests a relatively
early adaptation of a late medieval plan. In the north wall are the
remains of several blocked doorways which following the conventions of
late medieval planning may have served as entrances to the services.
Both wings have chamfered and stopped cross beams, and in addition the
south wing has an ovolo-moulded beam. The timbers here are reused.
Straight staircase in the rear wing with crude turned balusters. Jointed
and pegged king-post roof over the north wing. Collar and tie beam roof
truss over the hall range with central vertical strut and ; Taking struts
between the two horizontal members: possibly C16 but making use of re-
used timber.
