SP 28 SE
1/7 Pickford Grange Farmhouse
- II
House. Probably C16 with later alterations. Timber-framing partly replaced
by brick, with tile roof. Two storeys. East wall rendered. Main range of
three bays, with blind recesses to the outer bays on the first floor. Doorway
in middle bay. At the right is a jettied cross-wing which has a 3-light case-
ment window on the ground floor with leaded glazing. The first floor window
is at the far right of the facade. At the left is a taller one-bay addition
of stone and brick. Chimneys on left-hand gable of addition and in line with
doorway, the latter behind the ridge. Within later lean-to additions to the
north and west some of the square-panelled framing of the cross-wing is exposed.
The wing is also jettied on the west side. Similar framing is exposed at the
rear of the main range. Interior: the present doorway opens into a stair lobby
against the main stack. Both rooms of the main range have inglenooks with
boxed bressummers and each has a chamfered axial beam, the right-hand one with
stepped stops. The rear doorway adjoins the cross-wing. Two doorways lead into
the cross-wing although one is now blocked. On the first floor the visible
trusses of the main range have straight struts between tie-beam and collar,
and curved wind braces. The cross-wing seems to be independently framed, but
the roof trusses are of similar type.
