6/1 Beehive Farmhouse
Farmhouse probably C17, altered. T-shaped; the front wing is oak
framed in rectangular panels on a brick plinth and the rear wing
(probably late C18) is of brick; red tile roofs, formerly thatched.
The right gable probably incorporates the upper parts of a former pair
of crucks. The left gable is rendered. Brick chimneys flush on left
gable, left of centre on front ridge and central on rear wing. The
front wing has 3 bays of one storey with attic bedrooms. Part of the
1½ storey rear wing was a shippon. Small timber casements, probably
C19; one dormer gable to front.
The interior (not fully inspected) has many oak beams and boarded
doors on T hinges.
Probably a lobby-entrance farmhouse, later modified.
