3/40 Park Farmhouse



Farmhouse. C16 - C17. Timber-frame, narrow wattle-and-daub panels between
close-set studs; right hand flank wall cased in brick, tiled roofs. 3 parallel
ranges of 5 framed bays presenting 3 gables to west. Cross-passage through the
2 right hand ranges from entrance in middle of right flank. In 2 parts:
Left range: slightly higher and significantly wider than the other 2, asymmetrical
tension braces to corner posts at first and second floor levels. Irregularly
placed C19 metal casements and towards the rear of the left wall a first floor
original mullioned and transomed moulded timber oriel with vertical iron bars
between mullions in 8 north-facing lights; front entrance behind early C20
brick, timber-gabled extension. Centre and right ranges: matching main gables
regularly placed tension braces to posts; big local- type external stack in
stone with detached brick shaft. Regular fenestration: metal casements in
projecting timber windows, tiled weatherings above each; front entrance via
ledged door to left of centre bay; side entrance through C19 porch to right
centre of right hand range. Interior: centre and right ranges: close-set
chamfered beams in series of small rooms. The left range less internally
divided appears to pre-date slightly the other 2 which may replace an earlier
hall set at right angles to the left range. Prominent scotches to several
corner posts; herringbone pattern of struts in rear gable of left range;
projecting small horizontal member to right of upper window of right hand
range may be a perch; apices of 2 right hand gables have carved pendants
similar to those of left gable. The building was used as a country residence
and hunting lodge by the Bishops of Hereford (RCHM; a map of the footpaths
and parish of Colwall, Colwall Parish Council).
