Farmhouse, now house. Early C16, remodelled and cross wing rebuilt in later
C16/early C17: remodelled 1970's. Timber-framed on limestone rubble plinth: of 2
panels deep but many timbers are not in situ, except in cross wing which has
arch braces, brick infill and later limestone rubble cladding to front gable and
ground floor of right side wall. Gabled thatch roof; stone ridge stack, and
external end stack to rear of cross wing. Hall house with through-passage
adjoining cross wing on right. One storey and attic; 3-window range. C20 door
and casements. Chamfered and arched doorframes to front and rear through-passage
entries. Interior: wing to right has 2 collar trusses with windbraces. Hall
range: 2 heavily smoke-blackened queen-post trusses with clasped purlins flank
stack which backs onto through-passage: before the stack and floor were inserted
in the later C16/early C17 these trusses framed a smoke bay (a rare survival)
and there are traces of a heck to the rear. The truss to the left could not be
inspected. Possibly the birthplace of John Piers, Archbishop of York (1589-94),
whose father's inventory reflects the layout of the house.
