26/04/74 Brown Hill


Farmhouse, at one time 3 cottages. Once dated 1670, the
datestone now eroded, but built over several phases. Roughly
coursed and squared red sandstone rendered to rear, and with
concrete tiled roof.
EXTERIOR AND PLAN: 2 storeys, a long 4-window range single
depth plan, roughly divided into 3 main phases, the central
section possibly the earliest. Present entrance against left
hand gable, with tall window alongside, with heavy yellow
sandstone lintel. Smaller window in what may once have been a
larger opening (the sill projects beyond the present window)
to the right. Blocked doorway to right of this, against a
straight joint which corresponds with the position of the
chimney, and therefore possibly an original end wall. Blocked
door has very roughly cambered timber lintel.
Square window alongside the door and a further window
(inserted) against a further straight joint. Doorway to right
of this with cambered stone head (once bearing the datestone)
and small square window alongside it. 4-pane sash window with
heavy stone lintel (probably relating to an earlier opening to
its right), and a blocked square window beyond. Doorway and
6-pane sash window to right, and blocked window against
right-hand gable wall. Upper windows all probably inserted, or
renewed in earlier openings. 2 axial stacks, and a further
stack on right-hand gable.
INTERIOR: has apparently been considerably altered, and the
openings in the rear wall are all inserted or renewed.
