Listing Text

6/114 Manor Farmhouse
Farmhouse incorporating part of a mansion. C16, late C17 and early C18.
Limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; plain-tile roof with brick stacks.
L-plan. 2 storeys plus attic. 3-window front of C18 main range has leaded
casements of 3, 3 and 2 lights with, at first floor, stone flat arches and, at
ground floor, wooden lintels. The windows in the right bay are at lower level
and the bay also contains a doorway with a plank door. The right end wall is
tile hung. The roof is half-hipped to right and has a stack to left of centre.
The short hipped-roofed late C17 range projecting to left of the main range has
pairs of heavy cross windows in its end wall (original at first floor) and
slightly later leaded mullioned-and-transomed casements facing right; the main
entrance lies near the angle. The left wall has a fine projecting stone chimney
with a brick-shafted ashlar stack, beyond which is a small hipped-roofed
projection with cross windows. A further projecting chimney with 2 diagonal
brick shafts is probably C16, and rises against a crow-stepped gable with
rendered brick parapet containing a small 2-light wood-mLtllioned window. Rear of
house has further casements. Interior: C16 section has a Tudor-arched stone
fireplace with recessed spandrels and a brick relieving arch, and the room has
heavy joists; first-floor room has re-used C17 panelling. Late C17 wing has a
moulded rectangular stone fireplace, and the roof has 2 rows of butt purlins and
cambered collars. The earlier sections are part of a mansion built by the
Bradshawe family; the C18 wing may represent a rebuilding undertaken when the
house was aquired by the Duke of Marlborough in the early C18.
