GV II

Farmhouse. Circa 1840, Random rubble local stone, Ham stone dressings, steeply pitched slate roof, coped verges, brick
stacks right gable end, rising from coped verge below, and set in iron left gable end, double pile. Two storeys, 3
bays gables to outer bay windows projecting through eaves, 2-light casements first floor, 3-light on ground floor
flanking central single storey porch, coped verges with finial, depressed pointed arch opening part glazed inner door.
Slate hung left return with grounfloor bay window, Interior not seen. It is interesting that more thought and
attention went into the construction of the farmbuilding (q.v.), than into the farmhouse, though the latter may have
originally had the same glazing as the farmbuildings. Listed primarily for group value with the farmbuildings to north.
Wambrook farm was described as 'newly created' in 1844, I(VCH Vol IV,1978).
