SK 70 NE MAIN STREET (West Side)

2/80 Manor Farmhouse
(Previously listed as Manor House)


House, early C18, with possible earlier fragment incorporated in range of
outbuildings to right. Squared and finely coursed ironstone rubble, with
white ashlar dressings. New roof. Two storeyed with attics, three bays.
Symmetrical facade with central six panelled door beneath small canopy on
console brackets. To each side of it, are larger stones like quoins of former
opening, but may be purely decorative. Flanking 20-light sash windows. The
three upper windows are also 20-light sashes, and all windows are set in a
random area of white ashlar. Three gabled dormers in the roof. Gable end
stone stacks. Single bay to right of less height is also ironstone rubble
but brick to rear on ironstone plinth. It has a single 3-light horizontally
sliding sash window with ornately stopped chamfered lintel in its front elevation
and in the side a shallow brick arch at ground floor level as relieving arch
or cellar light. Rear elevation of main range has outer hipped gables with
a 12-light sash window to each floor, the central section filled by a large
early C19 canted bay window in ashlar with 12-light sashes. To the north
of the house, a projecting wing may be part of an earlier building. Ironstone
to ground floor heightened in brick above with new roof but stone coped gable
with finial. In its east wall it contains a 3-light horizontally sliding
sash window with ornate stop to chamfered lintel and small single light window
which may be a fire window beyond which is a steeply brick arched doorway
and another small light on its right. Inside a massive inglenook with stone
hood on timber bressumer suggests that this building may perhaps have been
a former detached kitchen.
