4/23 Whiteheads

Former farmhouse. C15 or earlier and late C16. Timber framed and plastered
with pegtile roof, hipped at both ends. Off-centre red brick stack of
'concertina' shafts and plaster panel with painted initials 'J.S. 1560' and
smaller stack through northern hipped end. Front has off-centre gabled porch
and C20 hardwood casements with leaded lights. Large, 2 storey C20 extension on

crosswings at each end, each with a single brace to the tie beam and mortices
for queen post roofs. The centre block is a late C16 rebuilding with integral
floor and heavy arch braces to the tie beam. The stack forms a 'baffle entry'
arrangement and has a large inglenook to the 'hall' and oven in its western
face. Moated site. RCHM 11.
