Little Park Farmhouse

TL 0237 2/136


Early C17, much restored and altered in C18-19. 2 storeys. Red brick,
much restored but in places showing English bond mixed with header courses; faint
traces survive of a diaper design in blue 'seconds'. The best preserved side
(south-west) shows twin gables, a moulded stone pointed arch and a lead rainwater
head below the valley formed by the gables. This head bears the initials 'WRA'
and the date '1629'. Windows on this side are much later: the traces of more,
and larger, windows are shown by patches of bricking-up. South-east side only
has windows in a section which was totally restored in late C18. On the north-east
side, a projecting gable end retains original brickwork and more traces of the
diaper design, but the sashed casements are later work.
