3/44 High Halstead Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse, in course of conversion as house at time of survey (1985).
Probably c.1600; reduced and altered in C19. Large squared sandstone in
watershot coursing, with quoins, rebuilt part of smaller masonry also
watershot and with quoins; graduated stone slate roof. Two bays, south
gable to road (this end formerly continued to south, but rebuilt in C19),
with short wing on west side (this demolished during survey, for
rebuilding). Two storeys; east front has at ground floor a recessed
king-mullioned window of 8 lights with ovolo-and-fillet mullions and
hoodmould, and at 1st floor 2 similarly recessed 3-light windows; wall to
the left rebuilt, with sashed window at ground floor; C19 cottage added at
right hand end; C19 chimneys at left gable and junction. South gable wall
has altered or inserted door; short west wing (before demolition) had in
the gable a large moulded depressed-arched doorway near the right hand
corner, a blocked doorway near the left corner, at 1st floor a blocked
opening with a hoodmould and a small chamfered opening to the left, and a
wide chimney on the gable; and there was a lean-to addition in the
re-entrant angle to the left. Interior: altered, but building work in
progress exposed in the partition wall to the wing the remains of a
triple-arched structure, with a wide segmental-headed fireplace in the
centre, a semi-circular arched doorway to the left (in line with the former
outer doorway) and part of a similar arch to the right; former wing likely
to have been a firehood incorporating the principal entrance. Reference
RCHM esp. pp.12-13 and 171-2. (Note: similar triple arches at Moorfell
Farmhouse, Hurstwood, q.v.).
