- II

Farmhouse. C16 or C17 with C18, C19 and C20 additions and
alterations. Timber framed with brick infill and brick with a
thatched roof covered with corrugated metal. T-shaped plan formed of
the C16 or C17 range as cross-stoke to which an C18 or early C19
downstroke has been added as well as a mid/late C19 extension
lengthening the cross-stroke at left. Entrance front: projecting
gabled wing to the right being the right hand end of the
cross-stroke. This is rendered and scored in imitation of ashlar with
a large C20 3-light window to the ground floor and smaller 3-light
casement to the first floor. Some timber framing shows where the
render has fallen off. The eaves are encased in corrugated metal. To
the left is a recessed wing forming the down-stroke of the T having
Flemish-bond brickwork with blue headers. In the re-entrant angle is
a C19 lean-to porch. The right hand side is largely obscured by a C19
lean-to outshut save at the right where C19 brick walling contains a
Cl7 nailed plank door. The mid/late C19 addition which appears here
at right consists of a single-storey linking block which connects to
the two-storey two-bay block.
Interior: Both ground floor rooms have chamfered and stopped ceiling
beams with similarly treated minor cross-beams.
Ingle-nook fireplace to parlour now blocked and
containing a C19 marble fire surround. Staircase of 3 flights
apparently removed from original setting, with square newel posts with
moulded caps. Moulded balustrade and turned balusters. The first
floor has C17 wide oak floorboards and both floors have C17 plank
doors. Double wind bracing (above and below the purlins) .
