History

Probably C17, remodelled with an added wing in the mid C19. The house was the home of the Quaker Thomas Wynne. A secondary dwelling was added at right angles to the house in the C17.

Exterior

A two-and-a-half storey farmhouse of rubble stone (the E elevation rendered) with slate roof which has a large central ridge stack and tall stack to the L end, both of stone. The main house is aligned roughly N-S, and has a later wing to the rear (W) at the N end. The front has windows under wedge lintels, comprising four 2-light casements in the upper storey. In the lower storey the doorway is offset to L and has a late C19 boarded door, to the L of which is a 4-pane sash window and to R, 3-light, and 2-light casements. The R (N) gable end has a small attic window, and a similar ground-floor window. A doorway, and a single window in each storey are in the rear wing, whose W gable end has stone steps up to a first-floor doorway, with brick chimney above. The rear of the main house has three 2-light casement windows in the upper storey. In the lower storey are two 3-light windows, the L of which retains stone mullions.

Interior

Although the interior is superficially C19 in character (eg wooden stair, 4-panelled doors, most upper floor timbers ceiled), the room to R of doorway has heavy exposed chamfered beam and joists. The fireplace has richly moulded C17 beam. Remains of curved principal rafters are at first-floor level.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a farmhouse retaining much C17 character, and for group value with the adjacent Lower House, the two houses comprising a well-preserved example of the 'unit system'.
