Northgate Farmhouse

II

House. Mid C16 with early C17 and later C17 additions,refronted and refenestrated
c1800. Coursed yellow sandstone to facade, red sandstone to rear and wings,
pantile and stone slate roofs, remains of earlier timber-frame internally.
2 storeys. Four 1st-floor windows. 2 cells of uneven size divided by stair/entrance
hall with rear wings. Doorway with overlight flanked by 24-pane Yorkshire sashes,
skilfully converted to casements with monolithic lintels and projecting sills.
External C17 stone stack to left gable heightened by C19 rendered brick; right
gable stack of C19 rendered brick. Rear: quoins to wings which are under a 2-span
roof. Right gable has early C17 external stack with quoined angles rebuilt above
ground floor level c1800. West wing to left, later C17,has in its left return
3-light window with monolithic lintel and window above with smaller lintel to left
of smaller window to each floor at junction with external stack which has shouldered
offsets.

Interior: 1st cell has roughly-chamfered spine beam and transverse girding-beam
with mortices for studded wall of square panels at junction with stair-hall.
Room to rear (west wing) has spine beam with broad chamfer and ogee stops. At
1st floor above 1st cell 2 posts with jowelled heads support large tie beams.
Roof has 5 bays of C16 collar-rafter roof, the collars gone but with halvings for
them on the rafters which are of differing pitches having a flatter pitch to early
C19 front; large tie beams with purlins supported by clasping angle struts. West
wing has C17 three-bay roof with 2 principal rafter trusses, lacking tie beams but
with high collars.

The house appears to have been a 3-bay open timber-framed hall with a 2-bay floored
solar to the south end and an added C17 rear wing. Perhaps a house of some status
being centrally situated in the middle of the village set in a garden of C17 topiary
box-hedges and with its timber-framed interior is a rare and important survival.
The C16 roof is similar in construction to that of Manor House Barn, Church Lane (q.v.)
