6/215 (22/8) Ravenshill Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C17 rebuilding of older structure, extended early C18
with mid-C19 alterations. Handmade brick on lias limestone rubble base;
two-span plain tiled roofs. Two parallel three-bay ranges aligned north/
south, external chimneys with off-sets at gable ends except for north-east
end. Two storeys, attic with dormers and cellar; 3-course band between
main storeys of east range; dentilled eaves cornice to west range. West
entrance elevation: windows are C19 casements with cambered heads; 3-light
windows in outer bays and 2-light windows in central bay; main entrance
to right of left bay has a gabled canopy on shaped brackets and a C19 door.
Brick ridge stack to left of centre. Interior: moulded ceiling beams, most
of original oak doors and floors retained; the two first-floor rooms of the
east range have C17 oak-panelled fireplaces with cornices; above the fire-
place in the southern room, behind the wallpaper, is reported to be a
painting on canvas of Europa and the bull. A lias limestone rubble wall
divides the two ranges. The earlier east range has two gables with case-
ment windows; this was originally the front elevation of the C17 house.
The cellar lies beneath the later west range and was probably the cellar
of an earlier structure on the site. Said to be among the earliest complete
brick structures in the County. (VCH 3 (ii), p 537).
