Description

SP61NW PIDDINGTON VICARAGE LANE
(West side)

11/139 Manor House

- II


Farmhouse, probably incorporating parts of manor house. Late C17/early C18, with
earlier fragments, extended C19. Coursed and random limestone rubble with
squared quoins, some brick dressings and wooden lintels; brick in Flemish
garden-wall bond; old plain-tile roof with brick gable stacks. T-plan, extended.
2 storeys plus attic. 4-window front has a doorway, to left of centre, between
large 4-light casements and has a C20 French window to right: first floor has 4
short 6-pane sashes below a continuous lintel partly covered by a deep plastered
eaves cove. Masonry shows much evidence of an earlier fenestration pattern. Roof
has 4 small 2-light hipped roof dormers and has stacks to both gables and in the
centre. Left gable wall has irregular masonry with signs of a lower gable line.
Short rubble rear wing is flanked by longer C19 rubble-and-brick rear wing,
incorporating some earlier masonry, and a brick range parallel to the main
range. Interior; open fireplaces some chamfered beams; squared intersecting
beams and signs of framing at first floor; butt-purl in roof incorporating 2
cambered collars, one certainly medieval with mortices for arched braces but
possibly re-used. The house has associations with the poet John Drinkwater.
(V.C.H.: 0xfordsfiire, Vol.V, p.250).
