9/121 Howe Brook House Farmhouse
17.4.67 (Formerly listed as Horne Brook

Farmhouse. C17 or earlier, with addition of mid-C18. Earlier part
timber-framed with clamstaff-and-daub panels, on high plinth of sandstone
blocks, and C19 common brick; C18 part of handmade brick on stone plinth;
roofs of slate and stone slate. The earlier part is L-shaped in plan,
formed by 2 bays at right angles, probably a hallrange with an east wing;
the C18 part forms a crosswing at the west end of the hallpart, and may be
a rebuilding of an earlier wing. C18 front is 2 bays and 2 storeys with
attic, has a 1st floor band, a segmental-headed door and 2 segmental-headed
windows on each floor, all these offset slightly right of centre, gable
chimneys, sliding sash attic windows in the gables, and stairlight in right
gable. The timber-framed part to the rear has been altered and rebuilt on
the south side; the north side is post-and-rail framed, the hallpart and
the gable of the wing each divided into 3 bays by posts, with straight
bracing to the wallplate, the panels variously weathered (some still
plastered and painted, some with staves exposed); the hallpart has one
inserted window on each floor of the middle bay; the re-entrant of the wing
has a window in the topmost panel; the gable of the wing has an integral
row of windows between the sill and a low rail: 3 old small-paned 2-light
fixed windows separated by studs, a blocked opening, and a plastered panel;
the topmost panel of the centre has a 4-light wooden mullion window (3
lights blocked), and the gable has chevron bracing. There is a full-height
added brick lean-to on the east wall of this wing. Interior not inspected
but likely to contain features of interest.
