- Dairy Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa 1600, with later additions. 2 storeys and attics to part, 2
storeys and I½ storeys to remainder. Timber-framed and rendered; clay
pantiles to main range; late C19 red brick, dentil cornice, and black glazed
pantiles to the lower part on the west. On the east, a red brick gable-end
incorporating a chimney-stack: the bricks are laid in English Bond, with signs
of alteration and repair; a later doorway and window have been inserted, and a
small upper original window, with brick mullions, blocked. A later stack with
a plain red brick shaft is at the junction of the 2 halves of the house.
Projecting forward from the west end is a small C18 13-storey timber-framed
wing, rendered, with black glazed pantiles, which formerly had a cellar below.
Old 3-light casement windows with transomes, pintle hinges, and the hooks for
former external shutters; door with 4 flush panels, the top 2 glazed. Good,
plain timbering exposed inside, mainly on the upper floor; arched braces in
the side walls; some blocked original windows; a main beam on the ground floor
with ovolo-moulding. Roof in 5 bays, with clasped and unstepped butt purlins,
and cambered collars. The basic plan is apparently of a 2-cell end chimney
house, with the present entry in its original position, but the arrangement at
the west end is not clear: a deep, narrow beam in front of the stack on each
floor, and a small section of framing beyond it, indicate that the house
extended further westwards, probably with a smoke-bay. The late C19 extension
further west is a reconstruction of earlier timber-framing: the chimney-stack
has C17 and C18 brick in it, and an unusual pair of faggot ovens, one above
the other, all of which antedate the brick exterior.
