SS 42 NE
Eastleigh Barton, including
rear garden wall containing
two bee-boles

Barton farmhouse. Probably early C16, remodelled in late C16 and extended in C17.
Rendered stone rubble. Slate roofs with gable ends. Tall stone rubble front
lateral hall stack with tapered cap. Rendered stack to right end and small dressed
stone stack set off the ridge to left of 2 storey porch. Stone rubble stack with
tapered cap, heightened in brick to gable end of rear range.
Complex plan development. Overall 3-sided rear courtyard plan, the front range
with large hall heated by front lateral stack, through-passage with gabled 2 storey
porch and lower end with lower ridge, the right angled range abutting rear left-
hand side of hall is probably a C17 parlour wing. The service wing to rear attached
at right angles to this parlour wing and running parallel to the main range,
completes the 3-sided rear courtyard plan.
2 storeys. Front range has 12-paned sash over tripartite 12-paned sash with 4-
paned sidelights to left of stack. 2 storey porch has 12-paned sash over cambered
arch doorway. Exceptionally fine inner doorway with moulded 4-centred arched
surround with foliated decoration to the spandrels complete with original door
which has linen-fold panelling. C19 2-light casement, 6 panes per light above 4
over 8 paned sash. One single light 4-centred arched stone window survives to rear
upper storey of front range. Two 12-paned sashes with blind oculus above, to
projecting left side of front gable end of right-angled rear wing. Single 12-paned
sash to its west face. Rear wing parallel to main range has a 3 over 6 paned sash
above a C19 3-light casement at its west end. Length of cob wall with tiled
capping extending to left has 2 bee-bole niches at left end.
Interior: not accessible at time of survey 1985, but brief inspection of through-
passage and hall suggested high quality C17 interior features survive, including
tall plank and muntin through-passage hall screen, unusual handmade brick floor to
hall and 4-centred arched doorway with foliated spandrels to lower end.
