Manor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C13, late medieval and early C17. Timber-framed cased, or
rebuilt in C19 gault brick. Plain tile roofs. Two rebuilt red brick ridge
stacks and painted brick end stack. One storey and attics find two storeys.
Irregular L-plan with crosswings to north-west and south-east. Main range of
south-east includes three bays of an aisled hall with later inserted floors
and chimney stack (for complete structural details see RCHM). North-west
elevation. Crosswing to left hand with painted brick external gable stack,
south-east range to right hand with gablet to hipped roof. Two doorways to
right and left hand with C20 doors, and with segmental brick arches. Door to
right hand with C19 canopy supported on shaped brackets. Three horizontal
sliding sash windows with small panes include two of three lights. One
gabled dormer window and one attic window both with horizontal sliding
sashes. The farmhouse was formerly owned by Christ's College, the C13 aisled
hall was probably Barnwell's manor-house rebuilt after it had been burnt in
1266 by Montfortian rebels raiding from the Isle of Ely.
