- II*

Farmhouse. Dated 1693 on lintel of door. Squared sandstone with quoins,
stone slate roof. Two-and-a-half-bay end-baffle-entry plan with lateral
staircase between the principal bays. Two-and-a-half storeys; north-east
facade of watershot coursing on a low chamfered plinth; doorway at right
hand end has moulded surround and segmental head, the moulding stepped up
in the centre to frame a carved heart, panelled raised letters "T" and "M"
each side of this and A above, and a hoodmould over the lintel; ground
floor has recessed mullion windows of 2, 3 and 3 lights, all with cavetto
mullions and hoodmoulds, 1st floor has similar windows altered as casements
but formerly of 3, 2, and 3 lights (that in the centre a stairlight set
slightly lower) and over the door a single round-headed light, all these
with hoodmoulds; under the eaves are little attic windows of 2, 2, and one
light with flush mullions (all blocked). Stone coping to left gable and
brick chimneys on both. Rear: a 2-light firewindow (opposite the front
door), a king-mullioned housepart window of 6 lights, a small round-headed
light to the staircase bay, and a 4-light parlour window altered to make a
door in the left half; at 1st floor a round-headed light above the
firewindow, and a 3-light window to each principal bay altered like those
at the front: all these with hoodmoulds; 3 attic windows like those at the
front; and a cut down chimney at the parlour corner. South gable wall has
one round-headed single light at ground floor and 2 in attic. Modern
single-storey addition at north end not included in the item. Interior:
housepart has inglenook fireplace with large chamfered bressummer, 2
ovolo-moulded beams; parlour has one similar; service room has chamfered
beam; 1st floor has similar; attic has axial and 2 lateral partitions to
eaves level, of post and rail with wattle-and-daub panelling, making
cubicles, presumably for migrant workers (many of whom have left graffiti
with dates, mostly C19); roof of 2 collar trusses. Best example of unusual
and very localised type on this plan: others are Cliff and Warth farmhouse
in this parish, and Marsh Farmhouse, Brindle CP (q.v.).
