Hedgeley Farmhouse

Planned farm buildings. Ranges enclosing original foldyard late C18;
extended east to produce E plan c.l840-50; threshing barn and engine house
mid-c19; north and north-west ranges later C19; covered yard c.1900. Mid-
C19 parts probably by F.R. Wilson of Alnwick. Late C18 parts squared tooled
stone; mid-C19 parts squared rubble with tooled-and-margined quoins and
dressings; later C19 parts similar but with smoothly-cut dressings; c190O
parts snecked stone. Welsh slate roofs except for C20 metal sheets on
southern barn in north-west range.

Original foldyard group has north range with 4-bay segmental arcade, partly
blocked, with 3 low loft windows directly beneath eaves; boarded doors,
small-paned sash and fixed windows. The south ends of the original east
range, and the east range of the extension, have Gothic detail; each has a
stable door and a part-slatted window, with 2 blind windows above, the upper
in stepped gable with moulded finials. Between these are the twin gables
of the covered yard, each with a tall central opening under a timber lintel,
flanked by blind windows. All openings in this facade have shouldered

The threshing barn, projecting to rear from the centre of the E-plan group,
has varied fenestration; openings in alternating-block surrounds. Engine
house to east has truncated ridge stack and a large boarded door; east again
is pent cartshed with blocked 4-bay segmental arcade. The later Cl9 north
range is an extension of the threshing barn; west elevation shows 5-bay
arcade with timber lintels on piers with stepped corbelled heads, and part-
slatted loft windows in chamfered surrounds.

The north-west range has a double-depth plan; the western part is a range
of byres, the eastern 2 separate barns. East elevation: Southern barn has
large opening with stable door to left; central recess between the barns has
large opening to byres, north barn has large opening with pitching door over
in gabled left return, and roof hipped to right. All large openings have
shouldered arches with timber lintels.

Interiors: Covered yards have queen-post roof trusses carried by axial and
transverse arcades of cast-iron columns and moulded stone corbels.

Historical note: Low Hedgeley became the home farm for Hedgeley Hall
(formerly High Hedgeley) after the Carr-Ellison family purchased the estate
