10/95 Station Farmhouse
Farmhouse/inn, now farmhouse. 1849 for Manchester, Sheffield and
Lincolnshire Railway Company. Brick with Welsh slate roof. T-shaped on
plan: 2-room central entrance-hall front with double-depth wing and
contemporary outshut to rear. 2 storeys, 4 first-floor windows. Plinth.
Projecting enclosed gabled porch to right of centre has chamfered 4-centred
arch with half-glazed door and plain overlight in reveal, ornate fretwork
bargeboards with drop finial, fish-scale slates; 2-fold half-glazed inner
door in roll-moulded architrave. Single wooden cross-mullioned windows to
either side have sashes with glazing bars, cavetto mullions and roll-moulded
architraves, rubbed-brick flat arches and stone sills. First floor: smaller
similar window to right, 2 to left, narrow single-light window above porch.
Overhanging eaves. Ornate bargeboards with finials. Partly-projecting end
stack to right with brick band and twin diamond-shafted corniced chimneys.
Similar stacks to rear with 2 and 3 shafts. Left return has ground-floor
bay window with 3 mullion and transom lights to front, single lights to
sides. 9-pane and 12-pane sashes in flush wooden architraves to rear wing.
Interior retains original staircase, chimneypieces etc. Similarities with
Nelthorpe Estate buildings suggest that this farmhouse/inn (formerly known
as The Queens Arms) was built by The Railway Company in arrangement with the
Estate. Adjoining outbuildings to rear are of no special interest.
Lincoln, Rutland and Stamford Mercury, 27 July 1848 p2.
