(south-east side, off)
13/18 The Old Abbey and attached
farmbuilding (Previously listed
10.11.53 as 'Barn South' of Abbey Farm
incorporating part of remains of
Yedingham Abbey)
House and attached farmbuilding incorporating part of the former chapel of
Yedingham Priory. C12-C13 wall containing two blocked arches; C18 house
probably incorporating a late C17 farmhouse; altered C19. Dressed
sandstone; pantile roof; brick stacks. House originally 2-cell baffle-entry
plan, later extended to incorporate the remains of the Priory wall in a
service wing and attached farmbuilding to form an 1-shape. 2-storey, single
window crosswing to right of 1 storey range. The C20 door within a glazed
porch is contained in the re-entrant angle. C20 2-light casements with
wedge lintels to ground and first floors of crosswing; C20 dormer to l½
storey range. Rear: to end right of attached farmbuilding is a blocked
round arch of voussoirs with a continuous moulded impost band. To the left
of the arch is a bracketed holy water stoup with a trefoiled canopy. Coped
gables and shaped kneelers. Central stack to crosswing and end stack to
service wing. Interior of farmbuilding: reverse of round arch, single
chamfered, beneath a hood-mould with one surviving stiff-leaf stop. Imposts
with stiff-leaf moulding. Interior of house: the first room of the service
wing and the room above contain a second, pointed, arch, of three orders.
Slender colonettes have stiff-leaf capitals; the arch has keel and dog-tooth
mouldings. The pointed apex of the arch is visible in the room above but
the exterior has been completely walled-in. In the room to the left of the
crosswing the chamfered bressumer, firewindow and spice cupboard of the
central fireplace survive. The firehood is visible in the centre of the
floor above. Two C18 plank doors survive: one to the service wing passage,
and one to the first floor room to the right, which also has an H-L hinge.
