8/160 abutting North corner with
gatepiers and gate


Farmhouse and boundary wall to garden abutting North corner with gatepier, and gate. C17, restored late C20. Red brick
English bond, rubble plinth, Ham stone dressings, striping to porch, slate roofs, overhanging eaves and bargeboarded
gable front right, soffit on right return, stone stack left gable end and right on centre of crosswing. L-plan: full
height porch and stair turret combined fronting 2 cell cross passage with 2 cell with back to back fireplace on North
East front. Two storeys, 1:1:1 bays right bay gabled C17 3-light ovolo moulded mullioned ashlar windows under hood
moulds, 2-light porch cutting string course with finely carved coat of arts to left above 4-centred arch moulded door
frames, C19 half-glazed double doors. Right return 1.2 bays with small light between, presumably to stair. Rear
elevation moulded 4-centred arch head door frame, C17 4 x 5 panelled door to cross passage, similar 4-centred arch head
door frame to doorway on axis to courtyard at rear. Interior: not sighted. Said to contain 'very fine' East gable end
fireplace with 4-centred head moulded lintel, spandrels carved with herring bone pattern. A rare example of a C17 brick
house, basically unaltered. It is thought that the coat of arts are those of John Baker of Hamwood, died 1677, to whom
there is a memorial in the Church of All Saints, Trull (qv). (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, May 1974; SANHS Proceeding,
Vol 120, 1976).
