Farmbuildings including cottage walls
1/10, 2/10 and gates adjoining to form octagonal
courtyard to East of Hinchwick
25.8.60 (previously listed as Outbuildings NE
& S of Hinchwick Manor )
Farmbuildings including cottage. Early-mid C19, remodelled C20. Coursed rubble
with ashlar quoins and dressings, Cotswold stone roofs. Elongate octagonal
and roughly symmetrical plan with open side to West containing Hinchwick (qv).
Cotswold style, charmingly adapted in early C20, in a Lutyens matter. To West
is an arched carriage entrance below a dovecote with cross-gabled cupola; gabled
to both fronts, the gables swept down over flanking doors, handsome wrought-
iron gates. Central feature of South is a 2-storey 3-bay cottage with 2-light
mullioned windows on 1st floor, and Tudor-arched entry on ground floor and circular
gable vent. Matching block on N side is a barn with slit vents having lozenge
heads, and with plain central entry. The linking buildings are single-storey
ranges (stables, garages, implement sheds etc) with more irregular openings some
with rectangular stone piers. As the site is sloping these latter are built
with the slope (and hence have sloping ridges) uphill to Hinchwick. Internally
the main divisions of the courtyard are formed by 2 walls about 8 foot high
framing the carriageway and which have roughly central arched entrances; the
walls open up with quadrants in front of the house. Many of the wrappings of
the Cotswold style such as coped gables with saddlestones, oculi in the gables
of the larger buildings and so on as well as the local materials add up to an
impressive design, carefully planned and executed.
