Moor House Farm comprising

11.08.87 outbuildings and farm
building forming courtyard


Farmhouse and attached outbuildings and farm buildings, mostly disused at time of resurvey. Early-mid C 19 of different builds. Mottled brownish brick in irregular English garden wall bond; pantile roofs. Courtyard plan of which the principal element is the 2-storey, 2-bay farmhouse on the south side, having a 2-bay wing to rear left and a small single-storey wash- kitchen beyond which forms the west side of the courtyard; the north side is formed by a cowhouse and stable range of different builds; the east side by a range of loose boxes from which a wall returns along the south side of the yard to link with the house and where it does so it forms the south wall of the privy block which is attached to the house. House: 4-panel door on left in wood frame with flat header-brick arch; to its right on each floor are two 12-pane side-sliding sashes under segmental header-brick arches; stepped eaves; end stacks. West side of courtyard: house wing has 4-panel door to right and a 3-light 24-pane side-sliding sash window to left, both under segmental brick arches; on first floor an inserted, central, board taking-in door (replacing a window); dentilled eaves; stack at left gable. Wash kitchen has board door on left and cental eaves stack; on the yard side is another board door to left of a 2-light, side-sliding sash. To the north of the wash kitchen is the cowhouse with loft over, which has dentilled eaves, a slatted opening to each level in west gable and in east gable two doorways (one blocked) and a narrow window. T o its east is the lower cowhouse and stable range having throughway adjoining western cowhouse with doorway giving on to this and on the south side two board stable doors and a part-slatted window on right, all under segmental, solider-brick arches. The later, east, range of loose-boxes has board stable doors. The wall on south side of yard is approximately 2 metres high with wide gateway. Attached to the east side of the house is the privy and coalhouse block with dentilled eaves and access from the north. Inside the courtyard a quadrant wall curves round from the privy towards the house and then runs northwards to meet the north range, so separating the access to the wash-kitchen and rear of the house from the rest of the farmyard. Interiors: house: panelled doors and fitted cupboards; on first floor, original iron grates in plain fireplaces. Wash-kitchen: quarry tile floor; boiler in corner. Cow byre and stable range: cobbled floors; stalls. Privy: 2-seater privy with wooden seat on stone slab. In state of disrepair at time of survey. The item is a rare survival and an unusually complete farmyard group of its period.
