(west side)
10/131 Manor Farmhouse (formerly
included under The Green, East Side)
Manor farmhouse, traditionally the birthplace of Fair Rosamund
Clifford in 1144 but earliest part to south east corner probably
early C15. Remainder of main house mostly early C16, with early
C17 or late C16 wing to north. Ashlar ground floor to main house,
with close studded timber-framed upper floor mostly with S-shape
bracing, stone slate roof. South east wing in large panel
framing, north wings in square panel on ashlar plinth only. Rear
faced in brick above ashlar and left hand return to east also with
brick outer wall. Very large external stacks to south in ashlar,
and to east with brick above ashlar base and 2 very large square
flues with decorative caps. North wing also has 2 large brick
flues with decorative caps. Originally a 3-sided courtyard plan,
with service wings to north on ashlar plinth forming U-shape, main
part of house having rear wing to left as oldest section, jettied
gable to front on left and 2-storey projecting porch to right.
Mainly 2 storeys and attic. Ground floor has two 6-light stone
mullions with arched lights, king mullions, releaded early glass
and square hoodmoulds with pentagonal stops. Narrow wooden arched
lights to first floor. Jettied end to left has moulded wood
bressumer as does jetty on porch to right which has arched opening
with square hoodmould, inner stone seats and double vertical
battened doors with horizontal cross planks to inside. Service
wing to north has scattered fenestration including one early 6-pane
wooden light to far right. South east wing also jettied to east
and with arched wind bracing in roof, originally with small
internal spiral stair lit by small stone lights and reached by very
small pointed archways on each floor, with door still existing on
ground floor, said to be the part connected with Rosamund.
Interior generally retains much of the original timber-framed walls
and doorways and has 2 fine stone fireplaces on each floor to the
external stacks. Hall to left of porch has plain moulded
Perpendicular fireplace and C16 arms of Codrington family in glass
to left. Parlour to far left has very unusual carved fireplace,
thought possibly to have a religious connection and to have come
from elsewhere. Very large low chamfered arch to north end of
north wing, probably originally the kitchen range.
