SX84NW Manor Farmhouse

House, formerly a farmhouse. C17 or possibly earlier origins with later
alterations including C20 restoration. Local slate rubble with rendered
front. Asbestos tile roof, gabled at left hand end, hipped at right hand
end. Rendered left hand end stack and axial stack and exposed stone rubble
right hand end stack.
Plan: Situated at right angles to road facing south east. Long range,
probably formerly 4 rooms but internal partitions have been removed to form
at the left end one long room with a gable end stack, and at the right end a
small room which since it has a fireplace at both ends must have formerly
been 2 rooms. There is a doorway to the right of centre, probably to a
passage between the 2 rooms. In front of the right hand room there is a
projecting bay and at the back a short wing attached to a long range of farm
buildings which have been converted into houses. Behind the main range
there is a parallel range of outbuildings also converted into houses.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Lonh asymmetrical 5-window range. The right hand end
projects. Mostly late C19 2 and 3 and 5-light casements with glazing bars,
the 2 ground floor right hand windows are circa late Cl9 sashes of 16 and 6
panes. Doorway at centre with C19 studded soft wood plank door with
wrought-iron hinges and C20 glazed porch with slate roof. There is another
doorway at the left hand end of the front with a C20 glazed door.
At the right hand end on the road a mounting block against the end wall. To
the right the short rear wing has a C20 glazed door with a chamfered wooden
lintel. At the rear a parallel range, probably C19 outbuildings converted
into separate house in C2O.
Interior: Seen from outside only. Large left end room has rough joists and
no main beam and the fireplace appears to have been rebuilt; probably
originally 2 rooms. The lower right hand room has large open fireplace in
stack which probably backs onto a cross-passage and has a high chamfered
wooden lintel. The lower end room also has a chamfered cross-beam and a
small fireplace with a brick arch in the lower right hand end wall.
