SO 66 SW
6/40 Bannal's Farmhouse and
adjoining hop kilns
6.10.52 (formerly listed as Bannal's)


Farmhouse and adjoining hop kilns. Mid-C18 with late C19 and mid-C20 altera-
tions. Part rubble with brick dressings, part brick and part timber-framed,
possibly re-using earlier materials, with brick infill; partly hipped plain
tiled roofs. L-shaped plan; main range of two bays aligned east/west and
having external rubble chimney with brick stack at west end. Long intersect-
ing range at east end with external north end chimney. Also large rubble
addition in north-west angle between these two ranges with large external
rubble chimney to west. Two storeys, attic and cellar. Framing: some of
the timber appears to be re-used from a much earlier building and is exposed
to south of main range. Two rows of square panels at first floor level. Also
some framing exposed on east side. Main south elevation: main range has a
ground floor canted bay window with casements, a 3-light and a 2-light first
floor casement and a central entrance with a gabled canopy, moulded architrave
and six-panelled door. (The two uppermost panels are glazed). Attic light
at west end. The two hopkilns are situated at the south end of the intersect-
ing range. Brick on brick and rubble base with gabled slate roofs and louvred
saddle ridge vents. Square plans. Three levels. The south elevation of each
kiln has a ground floor level and first floor level square opening and a
second floor level rectangular opening. Interior: the drying floors are said
to survive in the hop kilns. There is a moated site immediately to the west
of the farmhouse and it is probable that the re-used timber in the farmhouse
walling came from an earlier dwelling on this site. (VCH, IV, P 349).
