Listing Text

SP 23 SW
5/18 Priory Farm
House and cottage reputed to have been a chapel. House: dated
stone plaque 'ANO DO/1614 RO/BARTE WHYTM/ARGRIT/WHYT' over front
door. Cottage C17. House: coursed squared and dressed limestone,
concrete tile roof with limestone gable coping, ashlar stacks.
Cottage: limestone slate roof with flat gable coping left and
stump of ashlar stack. Cottage: small coursed limestone rubble;
larger squared blocks at right hand end suggesting substantial
rebuilding. House: rectangular main body with late C19-early C20
extension rear left and rectangular 2-room cottage staggered
forwards attached right. House: 2 storeys, 2-windowed; 4 and 5-
light stone-mullioned windows with stopped hoods and C20 casements.
Plank door with decorative hinges in flat chamfered Tudor arched
surround, off centre right. Stopped hood over date plaque. Large
scratch sundial in right gable end. Flat limestone gable coping
levelling out at eaves and roll-cross saddle left. Triple flue
right gable end stack, twin flue stack off centre left, both with
moulded caps and skirtings. Cottage: One windowed; C19, 3-
light, stone-mullioned casement with similar C17 window below. C19
plank door with segmental head off centre right, 2-light C19 stone-
mullioned casement right of door. Diamond leaded lights to all
windows in cottage facade. Single round headed window made out of
a single stone slab in rear wall, single light with ogee cusped
head above. Both windows possibly reused. Flat gable coping left
and stump of central stack. The present building is unlikely to
have functioned as a chapel as it is orientated north-south.
House interior not inspected.
