Farmhouse. C17 with late C18/early C19 alterations. C20 replacement fenestration.

end stone stacks the right-hand stack projecting, 1 axial stone stack.
3 room and through passage plan the hall heated by a stack backing on to the passage,
the lower end and inner rooms heated. The rear outshut is probably an C18 addition
and the hall has been extended to the front by a short projection with 2 gables to
the front. The front was refenestrated in the late C18/early C19 and the windows
replaced, mostly with copies, in the late C20. The rear of the through passage has
been blocked off to provide a pantry in the late C20. 2 storeys. 6-window
asymmetrical range with regular fenestration and a C19 front door into the passage at
the left and the hall projection with 2 steep front gables to the right.
Fenestration throughout the front elevation of sash windows with glazing bars.
Interior The front of the passage survives. The lower end has exposed joists and a
large fireplace with a plain timber lintel and stone rubble jambs. 2 first floor
rooms are said to have barrel ceilings probably of the early C18. Early features may
be concealed in the rest of the house. Town Farm makes an important contribution to
the village centre.
