10/265 Mannings Farmhouse


Small house, formerly a farmhouse. Probably early C18, extended in late
C18 or early C19 and much restored and extended again in late C20. White-
painted slate rubble, the left hand end rendered. Thatched roof with
gabled ends rendered gable end stacks, the left hand stack is now an axial
stack because of the late C20 addition at the left end.
Plan: The original circa early C18 house had a 2-room plan with gable-end
stacks and a central entrance, the lower left hand room was probably the
kitchen, the right hand room may have been unheated. In late C18 or early
Cl9 a 1-room plan extension was added to the higher right hand end with a
gable end stack, and in the late C20 another 1-room plan extension was
built at the lower left hand end, projecting slightly at the back with
small single storey wing behind.Exterior: 2 storeys. A long asymmetrical
4-window range. The 2 window bays at the centre are the original house.
The right hand 1-window bay is set back slightly and is the circa late C18
or early C19 addition; the left hand 1-window bay is the late C20 addition.
All late C20 1 and 2 light casements, except for the 2 ground floor centre
windows which are circa early C20 or possibly late C19 central doorway with
late C20 plank door and late C20 porch with conical thatched canopy. The
doorway and the flashing ground floor windows have cambered arches, the
other openings have timber or possibly concrete lintels.
The rear elevation has a small C19 2-light casement on the first floor with
glazing bars and another on the ground floor below; the other ground floor
windows and garden door are late C20. The late C20 extension to the right
projects and has a small late C20 single storey wing.
Interior: Much altered and some of the floors have been replaced, the
fireplaces altered and part of the wall between the right hand end room and
the room to the right of centre has been demolished. The roof structure
was not inspected but it is said to have roughly fashioned principals.
