16/80 The Manor House and attached
26/11/51 outbuilding range
(Formerly listed as Manor
House Farmhouse)


Manor house and outbuilding. Late medieval and C16/C17. Coursed limestone rubble
with some ashlar dressings; Stonesfield-slate and artificial stone-slate roofs
with rebuilt brick stacks. L-plan. 2 storeys plus attics and 2 storeys. Main
range has an irregular front facing a courtyard with two renewed 3-light
casements at first floor and, at ground floor, continuous lintels over a doorway
plus casements of 2, 3 and 4 lights, probably re-arranged. Lower wing projecting
from left contains the entrance in a lean-to porch, and has a 3-light casement
to each floor. Gables of main range have stone parapets with scroll kneelers
and, to left, a stone finial. Rear of main range has 4 casements at first floor,
and a stone corbel carrying a renewed diagonally-set lateral stack. Garden
front, to left, has a tall semi-octagonal stair turret with small stone windows;
the left gable wall of the main range (which the tower partly obscures) has
sashes, some with keyblock flat arches. Stacks at ends of "L" each have 2
diagonal shafts. A low link connects to a 2-storey 5-window outbuilding range,
probably C17, parallel with the main range and partly forming the third side of
the courtyard; it retains unglazed wood-mullion windows to both floors on both
sides. Interior: main entrance in lower wing has a moulded oak doorframe leading
to a through passage, forming part of a 3-bay room with intersecting moulded
medieval beams and matching wallplates; the Tudor-arched moulded stone fireplace
is re-set. The chamber above is said to have an arched truss. Formerly dated
1563. Outbuilding has a butt-purlin roof with raking struts to the trusses, and
has a heavy first-floor structure; it has been known as a malthouse. The earlier
range of the house is possibly the chamber block to a hall formerly on the site
of the main range.
