873-1/9/462 (East side)
12/12/53 No.2
Manor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Mid to late C18. Coursed rubble, thatch roof.
This is a late wing to the former farmhouse, which had a C17
range, set gable to the road, at the left; this wing
demolished (see RCHME).
EXTERIOR: a lofty 2 storeys, symmetrical 3 windows; at the
eaves are two 3-light wood casements, a small 2-light above
the door, and an additional single light left of centre.
Ground floor has large tripartite 2:4:2-pane sashes, to the
right to a segmental head with flush voussoirs, and to the
left to a wood lintel. The central panelled door is under a
thatched hood on 'cottage ornee' props. To the right is a
brick stack, and to the left a large external stone stack. The
left gable has a C20 single casement light at each floor to
the right of the stack, and the rear wall has a plain door,
and an outshut with corrugated-iron roof.
In the front wall there is a suggestion of an earlier opening,
in the form of a straight joint, at the left end of the upper
floor, and remains of jamb stones suggest that there was a
larger central first-floor window than at present. There are
remains of the farm outbuildings attached to the right gable
INTERIOR: not inspected.
(RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 362).
