History

Early C19 range of buildings, which appears on the 1840 Tithe map. The building containing the kiln and oven may be an original W unit of the house, as it has the same depth and eaves height and the same upper-window height and proportion. The hearth and chimney are integral to the kiln building but the malting kiln may not have been an original part of it. In 1970 the malting kiln (which has since been removed) was described as square, with tiled upper surface.

Exterior

W of the house is a ruinous building of two storeys. Rubble masonry with selected larger stones at the quoins. Slated roof in collapsed condition. Door at the left. The upper window is central, but the lower window is to the right, with a later farmyard wall abutting between the door and the window. The upper window is blocked in stone. Brick flat-arches, slate sills. The upper floor has also collapsed. The site of the malting kiln appears to have been at the rear left (SE) corner of the room. The chimney with its wide fireplace and baking oven are built into the W gable wall.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good early C19 farmhouse group with house, farm buildings and a specimen of small-scale malting and baking facilities.
