Highford Farm


Former stables, harness room and dairy. 1889, built by James Berriman. Stone
rubble walls with yellow and red brick buttresses and dressings. Gable-ended slate
roof with decorative ridge tiles. Axial stack of contrasting red and yellow brick.

harness room and stables at right-hand end. Stables have accommodation for 6 horses
- 2 loose boxes and 4 stalls.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 10-bay front divided by brick buttresses each surmounted by a
terracotta eagle, and at intervals along the front 3 buttresses have plaques giving
the date, initials J.B. and the function of that particular part of the building.
Inbetween the buttresses are windows with round arched heads and small-paned
casements. 2 have been replaced towards the left-hand end on the lst floor with
sashes. Round-arched doorway to passage left of centre. To the right of centre is

ambitious scheme to upgrade buildings and land by the owner Mr. Berriman. The farm
is notable for its decorative designs as well as carefully planned layout.
