4/44 White Lee Farmhouse


Farmhouse early C17 altered, and extended to right mid C19, of
reddish-buff rubble sandstone, mostly coursed, with Kerridge
stone-slate roofs. The C17 cross-gable, left, is of 2 storeys plus
attic. The right wing of 2 storeys has remnants of an oak frame in
random rubble walling at inner end, front; the rest in C19.

All stone-mullioned windows to the cross-gable wing are double
chamfered: to front gable 2 lower storey windows (left of 3 lights,
right truncated by later buttress, now of 2 lights) and indication of
former doorway nearly central; one formerly 3-light upper storey
window (with mullions removed) and remains of small blocked window to
right; attic has square window, formerly 2-light. To left end a
6-light window to lower storey; 2-light window to upper storey right
and formerly 3-light window (mullions removed) left. Rear gable has
one window to each storey, originally of 5 lights to lower and upper
storeys but with 2 mullions removed from upper, and square window
(formerly of 2 lights) to attic. Cavetto labels to cross-wing windows
(except lower storey at front). Later vernacular timber casements.
Oak lintel to partly blocked broad opening (now containing door and a
small window) at inner end of right wing. Exposed oak purlin-ends in
Interior of the cross-wing has 3 main oak beams to lower storey; the
front beam is slotted perhaps for former screen, the central and rear
beams have stopped ovolo moulds. A cross-beam suggests former
ingle-nook against inner wall. Oak purlins and a truss with later
queen-struts. There is stated to have been a spiral stair; the
present plain stair is in right wing. The mullions are bevelled
