162-1/12/225 (South side)
East Little Town


Farmhouse with attached outbuilding. Probably later C17;
altered. Roughly coursed sandstone rubble with quoins, slate
roof. Single-depth 2-unit plan on east-west axis, built back
to road and facing south.
EXTERIOR: 2 low storeys, 4 windows. The ground floor has an
added lean-to porch in the centre, protecting an old
double-layered studded oak door with a pegged oak doorcase,
strap hinges, a pull-handle, and a large wooden lock on the
inside; 2 oblong fixed windows to the left (6 and 8 panes
respectively), and an enlarged oblong window to the right. The
1st floor has 3 windows now furnished with top-hung casements
and a small square window between the 2nd and 3rd, now a
tilting casement. The left gable has stone coping and a very
broad square chimney (which, unlike the other chimney and
contrary to the prevalent local practice in this period, is
not corbelled externally but extends approx. 1 metre into the
roof); the right-hand gable has a corbelled chimney (corbels
enclosed by added outbuilding). Rear: 2 widely separated small
1-light windows at ground floor, a blocked stair-window in the
centre and a wide stone slate course over the upper floor.
INTERIOR: lateral stone partition wall to right of doorway,
inserted partition to left under chamfered beam; scored joists
either side of this; similar joists in parlour to right; short
quarter-turn stone staircase off rear corner of housepart (now
entrance hall).
