Aldersley Farmhouse
SE 12 SW 8/1 4.9.52


From a lawsuit of 1580, the Crown versus Tempest, the ownership of Aldersley
can be traced to Tristam Bolling in 1422. The existing farmhouse is indeed
timber framed but was encased in coursed gritstone and extended in the latter
part of the C17. Two-storeys with large quoins. Stone slate roof with saddle-
stones and kneelers. The north front has 4 bays, the left hand one breaking
forward. Three and 4 light chamfered mullion windows on splayed reveals.
Blind round-headed window to right hand of break on first floor. Circa 1800
squared jamb doorway. East gable end has small 2 light chamfered mullion
first floor windows and chamfered doorway. The south garden front has
3 symmetrical bays, with 3 light chamfered mullion windows on first floor and
5 light on ground floor. Weathered string between storeys. Early C19 gabled
stone porch. West gable end has external chimney breast with offsets, stack
removed. The timber frame is largely concealed in plaster and walls but would
appear to consist of 3 bays with cross wing. There is a massive ridge post
wing through from the kitchen approximately in original centre. Stop chamfered
ceiling beams and part of the beams exposed on first floor. Stone steps to
first floor. One partly exposed wall part adjacent to stairs on west side.
South-west ground floor room has late C18 fireplace with basket grate.
