SALTFORD

ST6867 THE BATCH
739-1/6/103 (West side)
Nos.1 and 2 Cherry Farm

II

Farmhouse, now 2 dwellings. C17, extended early C19, some
later modifications. Rubble, squared coursed snadstone to
No.1, pantile roofs.
PLAN: narrow single-depth former 3-room cross passage, with
part basement; the original farmhouse has a 300mm break
forward at the first bay, with small break in the roofing to
the front slope, and has been extended to the left in one
broad deep bay.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys, part basement to the right, 1+1+2
windows, all casements. No.1 has one 2-light at each level, in
broad flush dressed surrounds, with a 4-panel C19 door to the
right, at a straight joint to No.2. The centre section has a
small 4-pane C19 door above 3-light and 6 panel door, all
these to wood lintels, and the projecting bay has 2-light at
first floor, and a small 2-light near the door, left, with a
large C20 steel sash to the right. Each gable is coped, with
an ashlar stack, and at the party junction is a small brick
ridge stack. The right return has a 2-light above lateral
lean-to, and there are signs in the masonry of a raising of
the roof line; the left return has a 2-light above part-glazed
door, both in flush dressed surrounds. The rear of No.1 has
late C20 raking dormer above doorway, and there is a blocked
doorway on the external face of the party wall. The main
farmhouse has two 2-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned
casements at eaves level, and a similar wood casement set
lower, to the right, and two similar stone-mullioned casements
with drip courses on the ground floor, a 4-pane sash in flush
surround, and a glazed door under later lean-to.
INTERIOR: retains many early features, including plank and
panelled doors. At each end of the main farmhouse is a deep
bressumer fireplace, that to the right with salt cupboard. The
wooden winder stair goes down to a 2-part basement with
differing floor levels, in stone and with badly worn roughly
chamfered beams, propped in part on brick piers. The stair, on
the front wall and to the right of the doorway continues to
the first floor, with few visable features of interest.
The roof space was not inspected.
