Range of Farm buildings
to north of Stevens
4 and 8/898 Farmhouse
Model farm. 1852, by Beadle, Son and Chancellor for James Crush. Flemish bond
brown brick with red brick dressings; hipped slate roofs. Plan of 3 covered
yards, facing south, flanked by barn range to north and by 2-storey ranges to
east and west which comprise granary/hayloft over stable range to west and root
house, cowhouse and tool box to east; 1-storey hackney stable, harness room and
coach house range projects southwards from west range; 1-storey piggery and
horse yard range projects westwards from north end of stable range. Covered
yard divided into 9 x 3 bays by cast iron columns supporting iron King-post
trusses; flanking east and west ranges have flat brick arches over stable doors
with louvred overlights and segmental brick arches over centre-hung cast-iron
casements with glazing bars; open fronted upper floor with brick piers to roof.
Three full-height double-entries from yard to barn, which has 3 sets of sliding
doors, plank loft doors and ventilation holes to rear (north) elevation. East
and west elevations of flanking ranges have pilasters to bay division, large
semi-circular arched entry to west and similar cast-iron windows and loft doors
to east. Similar pilasters to north elevation of piggery and horse yard range.
One-storey east elevation of hackney stable and coach house range has 4 semi-
circular arched lancet windows, flat brick arch over plank door to stable and
plank sliding doors to coach house. Interiors noted as having stone-flag floors
and King-post trusses. Included as a very early example of an advanced mid C19
farm complex using covered yards, increasingly advocated in the later 1850s as a
more efficient method of conserving farmyard manure than open yards and endorsed
by scientific experiments.
