Farmhouse. Probably early C17, enlarged and altered. Red brick
in Flemish bond and the remainder pebble-dashed, stone slate
roof with some corrugated asbestos sheet.
Irregular plan formed by a main range on an east-west axis
with 4 short linked gabled wings or extensions on the north
side and a large gabled barn at the west end of the south
side.
Two low storeys, a north facade of 4 unequal gables; with a
doorway approximately in the centre (under the 3rd gable), up
2 steps, with a panelled door and semi-circular canopy;
another doorway into the left wing; and various
segmental-headed windows of various sizes and shapes, all now
boarded, including one much larger than the others at 1st
floor of the 3rd gable (see Interior and History below).
The left return wall of the east wing has a 2-light casement
at ground floor and a 3-light sliding sash above; the gable of
the main range has an extruded chimney stack and a wooden
cross-window at 1st floor; the south front has a plinth, a
board door offset to the right, a small segmental-headed
window to the right of this, a tall damaged and partly boarded
window to the left and a 3-light sliding sash above this. The
gable end of the rear wing has 2 doorways at ground floor and
a small window above.
INTERIOR: the east wing has a C17 stop-chamfered beam; a small
room at the rear of the main range has a beam with C16-type
double-chamfer; and at 1st floor there is a large room (under
the 3rd gable) with a large segmental-arched roof truss.
HISTORY: occupied in later C17 by Recusants, notably Dr Henry
Longe, a member of the English College at Rome and
subsequently Peter de Lathom, who used the house as a mass
centre, which it continued to be until the Church of St John
(q.v.) was built c.1815.
