Farm building, c.1600, probably originally retainers' quarters and
stables. Sandstone rubble, with timber-framed upper storey and
stone slate roof. 2 storeys. The south wall has a jettied timber
gallery on the 1st floor. The ground-floor openings are as follows:
1. A blocked chamfered doorway, now a window. 2. A chamfered doorway.
3. A window with plain reveals. 4. A block chamfered doorway, now a
window. 5. and 6. Windows with plain reveals. The gable walls are of
stone, with later copings and footstones. They have been extended
towards the south. The east gable wall has a blocked 2-light mullioned
window on the ground floor and a mullioned and transomed 1st floor
window of 10 lights (mostly blocked) with outer chamfer and inner
hollow chamfer. The north wall has later openings with plain reveals
on the ground floor and jettied timber framing above. On the 1st floor
are 5 windows with splayed wooden mullions, mostly blocked. Beneath
them is close studding, with diagonal studding to each side of 3 of the
windows. The timber-framed panels, which have wattle-and-daub infill,
are structurally separate from the wall plate and principal posts, the
latter having peg holes which suggest that there may have been
earlier rails. Interior. The south gallery has jowled posts with
cambered timbers tying them to the posts of the inner arcade. The
latter have curved braces to an arcade plate which has holes for the
former wattle infill, the wall now being boarded. The wall has 5
chamfered wooden doorways, 4 with segmental heads and one with an
ogee. The 1st floor is now open for its entire length and has trusses
with arch-braced ties, jowled principal posts and king posts. The trusses
have been partly reconstructed above tie beam level. Wattle holes suggest
that the trusses were originally closed. The wall plates have scarf joints.
