4/111 (15/13) Pumphouse Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now house. Early C17, altered and extended c1700, mid-C19 and
mid-C20. Part timber-framed with painted brick infill, part brick (some
handmade) with sandstone dressings; plain tiled roofs, hipped to north wing.
Probably a former hall and cross-wing plan; cross-wing of two framed bays
aligned north/south with two external chimneys to west side elevation, one
of dressed sandstone with paired C19 diagonal brick shafts, the other all
C19 brick; the hall has been replaced by a mainly C19 L-shaped addition,
the main range of which runs parallel to the cross-wing and is of three
bays with a two-bay east return and, at return junction, has a large sand-
stone chimney with brick ridge stack. Two storeys, attic with dormer, and
cellar. Framing: two large square panels from sill to girding-beam, three
small square panels from girding-beam to wall-plate; collar and tie-beam
truss at south gable end with two collars and five struts to lower collar,
three to upper collar and concave-sided V-strut in apex; north gable end
rebuilt in brick. South elevation: timber-framed gable end to left has a
C20 glazed lean-to addition at ground-floor level, a 3-light first-floor
casement and an attic light; C19 gable end to right has a ground-floor 2-
light and a 3-light casement, the former with cambered head, the latter set
within a blocked doorway with a pointed-arched hood mould; above is a 3-
light casement with a cambered head and a brick stack. A C20 single-storey
wing adjoins to right. North elevation of east return has sandstone quoins,
a 3-light and a 4-light stone splayed-mullioned ground-floor window, two
first-floor 3-light casements with cambered heads, a hipped roof dormer with
a 3-light casement, and to the right a large blocked doorway with sandstone
quoins and lintel and an inserted C20 door. Interior: the timber-framed
wing has a close-studded east side elevation with a 5-light wood-mullioned
window to the south bay. The house was once part of the Vernon Estate.
