Listing Text


NY 45 SE

9/144 Byre Hill Farmhouse,
1. 4.57. Corby Castle Estate
(formerly listed as
Byre Hill Farm)


Farmhouse and barns, probably formerly row of estate cottages for Corby Castle.
Mid C17; mention in previous listing to medieval masonry and timber, refers to
reused material and is no indication of the date of the building. Thick coursed
sandstone rubble walls, slate roof probably originally stone slates with only
one chimney stack. By the arrangement of filled windows and doors this would
seem to have been 3 or 4 two storey cottages with common roof. Small filled
windows have been mullions with chamfered dressings and door lintels with
chamfered points and square heads: many C19 windows and doors have been cut
through the walls making it difficult to interpret the original use of the
building; now one farmhouse to left and barns and hay lofts to right, still
under common roof. Probably became estate farm in early C19.
