Farmhouse. Late C14 or early C15, re-modelled 1721 (datestone)
with later additions and alterations. Red brick concealing timber frame,
partly of cruck construction to rear, plain tile roof and raised verges.
Original plan a 2-bay open hall with service bay or bays at west end
and a 2-bay solar cross-wing slightly projecting at upper end; 3-bay
brick range added to front 1721 and the cross-wing extended to north,
forming present U-plan. 2 storeys and gable-lit attic to C18 range,
floor bands and toothed eaves cornice; 3-window front, glazing bar
sashes, replacing 5 infilled windows to first floor and 4 to ground
floor; central entrance, early C19 pilastered doorcase with 4-panel
door and rectangular overlight; integral corner end stack to right and
external stack to back wall on left, ridge stack to former open-hall
range. Datestone "W.D.(William Daker)/1721" over central first-floor
window. Interior: inspection not possible at time of re-survey
(February 1985) but central truss of hall range known to survive,
arch-braced cruck (destroyed on ground floor) with cambered collar and
v-struts, Alcock apex-type L2; first floor of cross-wing has close-studding with
short straight tension braces exposed to side walls and former northern
end wall but framing destroyed on ground floor; single-purlin roof
with curved windbraces and central and northern trusses surviving,
cambered collars supported by 3 vertical struts from tie beam (central
one now missing on central truss), jowled wall posts with slightly
arched braces to tie beam. An unusual feature is a pointed-arched
recess with moulded stone lintel at south end of east side wall; this
relates to a brick projection on the outside wall but its function is
not known. V.C.H. VIII (1968) p. 36; Alcock (1981) p. 143; Salop
