3/326 Leigh Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 or earlier origins, substantial C19 remodelling. Partly cob on
stone, partly stone rubble, front colourwashed and rendered. Slate and asbestos
slate roofs, stone stacks. Complex development. The present plan is a single depth
main range gabled out to the front at the left-hand end. A rear wing to the main
range forms a rough T-plan. The early core of the house is at the left-hand end of
the main range which is cob and stone and hipped at the left end and gabled out to
the front. This may have been the original inner room of a 3 room and passage house,
heated from a partly dismantled stack at the left end. A stone stack on the ridge
may be the former hall stack. The rear wing has a projecting lateral stack, now
enclosed by a later outshut and is probably C19 and may have been a kitchen wing. In
the C19 the lower end of the main range was completely rebuilt in stone rubble with
granite quoins and probably extended, indicated by a straight joint at the rear. 2
storeys. The front elevation consists of a shallow front left gabled projection and
a 3 window symmetrical C19 block gabled at the right end. The front projection is
clad with corrugated iron at first floor level, the C19 block is colourwashed and
rendered with a central gabled stone porch. C20 fenestration to the projection, the
C19 block has ground floor 12-pane horned sashes to left and right of the porch and 3
C19 2-light casements, 6-panes per light to the first floor.
Interior Massive fireplace to rear wing has a chamfered timber lintel.
Leigh is documented in 1330.
