and adjoining out-
buildings and hop kilns
Farmhouse and adjoining outbuildings and hop kilns. C18, altered and
extended mid-C19. Coursed dressed sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings,
slate roof with overhanging bracketted eaves and brick ridge stacks. Two
and three storeys with two-course band at first floor level. One plus three
bays. Windows have ashlar sills. Three-bay part has a 4-light casement with
a cambered head and moulded keyblock and a C19 hipped-roofed canted bay window
on the ground floor; on the first floor are two 3-light C19 casements and, to
the left, a round-headed window with a dropped keyblock and Y-tracery. Beneath
this window is the main entrance which has a hipped-roofed porch on timber posts
and a partly-glazed door with a cambered head. The single-bay part to the left
has a ground floor 6-pane sash with a cambered head, a first floor 3-light
casement and a smaller 3-light casement on the second floor. Outbuildings: three
rubble, slate-roofed ranges adjoin to the left. The one adjacent to the house
was probably a farmworker's house. Two storeys, two bays. There is a ground
floor 12-pane sash with a cambered head, two first floor 2-light casements and
a partly-glazed door with a lean-to canopy on straight brackets. The next
range is also of two levels and two bays and has a ground floor square window,
two first floor 2-light windows and a ledged and battened door. Adjoining this
is a range of two levels and three bays. This may have been a malthouse and
has two ground floor 6-pane windows, three first floor square windows and a
central ledged and battened door. At the rear of it are two hop kilns: brick
with combined steeply pitched hipped slate roof. Rectangular plan. Two levels.
Their east elevation has two ground floor openings with cambered heads, a first
floor window and a central loft door.
