- II

Farmhouse, probably C17, altered and enlarged at an early period. Coursed
sandstone rubble and squared stone, with quoins, slate roof with stone
gable copings and gable chimneys. Altered L-shaped 2-bay plan formerly by
early addition of outshut to rear of 2nd bay in angle of earlier and
shallower outshut to 1st bay. Two storeys; front wall facing garden is of
different masonry above ground floor level: lower part of small rubble has
2 double-chamfered mullion windows now of 3 square lights each but with the
stool of at least one missing mullion suggesting that they were formerly
6-light windows; upper part of squared rubble has 2 smaller 3-light windows
with chamfered flush mullions. Left gable wall has a large external
chimney stack with chamfered base and offsets, a lean-to shed in front of
this, a continuous dripcourse to the rear of it, with a doorway near the
rear corner and a window above. Right gable wall has a doorway near the
front corner with chamfered surround and pointed Tudor-arched head, now
covered by an added lean-to. Rear of 1st bay has at ground floor a 5-light
double-chamfered mullion window with 3 lights blocked and 2 altered as a
sliding sash (mullion removed); rear of 2nd bay (the added outshut) has a
doorway flanked by square windows. Interior: probably altered and raised
in C18: 2nd bay has high ceiling supported by 2 chamfered beams with
run-out stops, housed at the front end well above window-head level, and
with blocked post mortices in the soffits of the rear ends; a similar beam
is incorporated in the partition between the bays, which has a slightly
Tudor-arched doorway at the front end; the partition wall to the rear
outshut appears to be timber-framed. History: not known, but adjoining
barn has lintel of former doorway with raised lettering G possibly
