TL 2547 COCKAYNE HATLEY (Wrestlingworth)
15/126 Home Farmhouse
House. Formerly part of the endowment of Downing College Cambridge, made 1764
by Sir Jacob Downing. Since the endowment derived from Wrestlingworth
consisted of two thirds of Hereford's Manor (VCH, III, p257), Home Farmhouse
may possibly be the former manor house. C16 or earlier, with C18 and C19
reworkings. Substantial timber framed structure clad in colourwashed render.
Slate roofs. Hall and cross-wings. 2 storeys. Central block said to have
some smoke blackened roof timbers, so that first floor and chimney may be
later insertions. S elevation: central block has casements with glazing bars,
ground floor ones of one and 3-lights, first floor ones of 5 and 2 light. LH
gable has 4-light casement to ground floor and sash with glazing bars to first
floor. RH gable has sash window with glazing bars to each floor. Central
block has 6-panel door, top pair glazed, surmounted by flat bracketed hood.
This is in cross-passage position and is in line with canted bay containing
French window to rear elevation. Substantial red brick multiple ridge stack
serving back-to-back hearth. Cross-wings have external brick stacks to side
elevations. LH cross-wing has later lean-to addition of colourwashed brick
and slates.
