25/06/73 Websters Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now house. Dated 1682 in gable of porch; enlarged
c1900 and altered. Handmade red brick in English garden wall
bond (3+1) on sandstone base, composition tile roof. Two-unit
end-baffle-entry plan with projecting porch, rear wing and
addition to left. Two low storeys; the principal element, 1:2
windows including a 2-storey gabled porch to the left, has an
elaborate and unusual 3-course band carried round, with a
corbel table of raised headers and a projecting top course in
which alternate bricks are set on edge to give an embattled
effect, and between the ground floor windows a pendent oblong
panel in similar manner. The porch has a square-headed doorway
with stone lintel and C20 board door, a small square window at
1st floor, and above this a square datestone with raised
lettering: T/ TH/ 1682, and one very small window on each
floor of the right-hand side. The main range has oblong
windows on both floors, those at ground floor under blocked
depressed arches with arch-bands of separated raised headers,
and all with C20 joinery (replacing 3-light sliding sashes).
Chimney at left gable; and modern one-window extension to
left. HISTORY: the decorative use of brick on this building is
very similar to that at Nos 1 & 3 Cobbs Brow in Newburgh, West
Lancs District.
