4/112 Whiteway Barton including garden
walls, gatepiers and railings
Large house. Late C17, possibly a remodelling of an earlier building. Rendered
stone rubble, 2 walls said to have been rebuilt in brick; asbestos slate roof
(formerly thatched), gabled at ends; rear lateral stack to main range, right end
stack, axial stacks to cross wings.
Plan unclear at time of survey (1986) as access to interior unobtainable. Probably a
3 room plan main range (facing south) with a rear stair wing. The rear left cross
wing is said to be a service wing containing the kitchen, with a lofted barn at the
end, the rear right cross wing is probably for additional accommodation but said to
be derelict internally.
Asymmetrical 7 window front with regular fenestration and plain 2-storey buttresses
or piers at the left and right end. 3 windows to the left and 4 to the right of the
entrance bay which is flanked by similar 2-storey buttresses. Probably C19 porch on
timber posts, additional doorway to right of centre. Very fine set of C17 2-light
casement windows with high transoms and square leaded panes. The east elevation of
the east cross wing has 2 gabled dormers with similar windows, one 3-light casement
with square leaded panes and 1 smaller 2-light window. The rear (north) wall of this
wing is said to be brick. The west elevation of the west wing has C20 windows.
Approximately U-plan courtyard to the rear formed by the cross wings. Between the
wings is a projecting stair wing with 1 ground floor 3-light casement with a moulded
frame and small panes, 2 first floor high transomed 2-light windows with leaded panes
and one 2-light window in the gable. A more shallow projection adjoining this wing
contains the rear door and two 2-light high transomed windows both formerly with
leaded panes, the right hand window has been reglazed in the late C20. The return of
the east wing (facing the courtyard has a 3-light ground floor window with a moulded
frame. The courtyard elevation of the west wing has 2 first floor high transomed
windows with leaded panes and a flight of stone steps leading to the first floor. A
separately-roofed lofted barn adjoins the end of this wing.
Interior not inspected but almost certainly contains features of interest, and is
said to have moulded cornices and ornamental plasterwork.
A fine C17 building, possibly with an earlier core with remarkable surviving
Whiteway Barton is in the site of a Doomsday Manor and was the scene of the murder of
Gilbert Yarde in 1783.
