Range of houses immediately to
north-east of Affeton Castle, now
2 dwellings(previously listed as
north range to Affeton)
Range of buildings to former manor house of which only the gatehouse now survives
(q.v); now 2 dwellings. May be as early as C15, but no evidence of a date earlier
than the late C16 seen, much altered late C18 to provide a farmhouse and an
additional house. Coursed local rubble, gabled straw-thatched roofs, some slate to
right wing, a brick ridge stack at each end, a large rubble stack and a brick axial
stack to centre, 2 lateral stacks at rear, one truncated and capped, the other with
a tall rubble shaft.
Plan: long single depth range with a wing to right of the front forming an L-plan.
Divided into 2 houses; the left-hand has a central entrance and 2-room plan, the left
room has a gable end stack and the right-hand room an axial stack. The right-hand
house, not fully inspected is probably also of 2-room plan, central entrance, 2
lateral stacks to the rear. 2-storey wing at the front of the right end, late C18
addition when the whole range was remodelled.
Exterior: 2 storey long asymmetrical 6-window range, plus one window in the
projecting wing to the right. All these are late C18 horizontally sliding sashes of
12-panes. 2 late C18 doors, to left panelled, to right half-glazed with transom
light with glazing bars, hipped roof wing projecting to right, casements in
Interior: with 2 large chamfered and ogee-stopped ceiling beams to the hall,
remainder of fittings seem late C18 including doors and a simple straight-flight
Roof: appears late C18 with tie-beam trusses, but not completely seen so may
incorporate some earlier work.
