3/6 Manor Farmhouse and attached
Farmhouse, now house. Early/mid C18, incorporating earlier elements. Limestone
rubble, and coursed squared limestone with ashlar dressings; concrete-pantile
and Welsh-slate roofs with stone-and-brick stacks. 3-unit plan with rear
outshut. 2 storeys plus attic. The 3 bays to left of the 4-window front are in
coursed stone and have a symmetrical arrangement of sashes, with a central
doorway below a blocked window; all openings have stone flat arches, the
entrance has a folding 6-panel door with overlight, and the windows have 12-pane
sashes except that to right of the door which has been widened to take a 16-pane
sash. Small cellar windows flank entrance steps. The rubble fourth bay, which
probably incorporates C17 work, has 16-pane C19 sash windows at a lower level.
The continuous hipped roof has end stacks and a further stack to rear, all with
stone bases. Rear has a wide contemporary outshut, now with altered openings.
The 6-bay farm building, attached to right, breaks forward at an angle and has a
corrugated-asbestos roof, half hipped to left; the front has a loft door and
there are stable doors and windows to rear plus a loft door leading to a
granary. Interior: large open fireplace and stop-chamfered beam in lower bay;
much mid-C18 joinery, including 2 half-panelled rooms and a first-floor room
with complete fielded panelling; butt-purlin roofs in house and farm building.
