Former cottage and farmbuildings adjoining Lower Eyton Farmhouse to east


Cottage and farmbuildings, now store and farmbuildings. Probably C16
or C17 with C18 and C19 alterations and additions. Timber framed,
eastern parts of cruck construction, with red brick nogging, partly
rebuilt in coursed Alberbury breccia rubble and red brick, with squared
and coursed Alberbury breccia plinth to east. L-plan, forming U-plan
with farmhouse (qv)to west; hipped plain tile and corrugated asbestos
roof. Former cottage of 2 framed bays to west with adjoining cow houses
of 2 bays and 3-bay barn returning to south. One storey and loft and
one storey and attic. Framing: square panels, only one panel on high
brick base (probably reused timbers). North front: 2 gabled eaves
dormers to right with 2-light wooden casements; glazed loft opening to
left; boarded-over cottage window to right with segmental brick head;
cow house window off-centre to left; 3 boarded doors to loft, that to
right with 2 leaves and segmental head; left-hand return front with
2 loft openings and doorway to left. Segmental-headed boarded door at
rear of former cottage. Collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts
exposed in gable end to rear of barn range. Interior: former cottage,
latterly dairy: cambered collar and tie-beam trusses with queen struts;
butt purlins with wind braces; angle braces; one bay has chamfered beams
and joists with run-out stops and the other bay has a quarter-round
moulded beam and a chamfered beam and joists with ogee stops; probably
C17 newel staircase; barn: 2 full cruck trusses with tie beams and collars,
that to south with tension brace to tie-beam appears to have an Alcock
apex-type F3 with diagonally-placed ridge piece, and that to north
with Alcock apex-type E; single purlins; bay adjoining to west has a
collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts. Evidence of probable
smoke blackening of the cruck trusses suggests that the barn might have
been domestic in origin. The farmbuildings adjoin Lower Eyton Farmhouse
(qv) to the east. Alcock, pp. 96 and 143. -
