SO 76 NW ROCK CP Westcroft Cottages


- II

Farmhouse, presently disused. Late C16 or early Cl7. Partly timber-framed and
brick-nogged, and partly replaced in red brick to south and east; plain tiled
roofs with brick stack towards west end of ridge. Main range aligned east-west,
with cross-wing aligned north-south at west end. North front: two storeys with
scattered fenestration, difficult to estimate because of the derelict state of
the building. South front: scattered fenestration with one window in gable to
left and three gabled dormers equally spaced on main range to right. Two door-
ways on this front, missing doors at time of resurvey. Lean-to extension pro-
jecting to north at left-hand end of north front. Interior: not wholly
inspected due to condition of building but noted as containing a rubble stone
stack rising to brick at approximately roof-level, timber-framed cross-walls and
chamfered spine-beams to ground-floor rooms. The building was in a derelict
condition on inspection (February 1987 ).
