4/5 Manor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Origins in the C17, altered in C18 and C19. Timber framed core
extended in brickwork. Plain tiled roof. Main range has principal facade of
c1840, which is 2 storeyed with 3 gables heavily ornamented with barge boards
with pendant finials, symmetrically arranged with door in central gable
beneath the gabled porch with chamfered round headed archway. The windows are
wide 4-light sashes beneath hoodmoulds. Gable and axial stacks. To the left
of this is the earlier part of the building. This has remnants of three bays
of timber framing, with principal posts, arch bracing and fragmentary rails.
The windows are largely C20 insertions and this part was heightened in the
C19. Left hand bay beyond this is of Cl9 brick with dentils and a single
casement window on each floor. More of the original building is visible at
the rear, where it becomes clear that behind the Victorian facade are
extensive traces of the earlier building. The left hand gable projects and
seems to be entirely Cl9, while to the right is an additional C19 wing, but
the central section is timber framed, the principal posts and wall plate
clearly visible. Blocked doorway to right, and renewed window to left with an
early C19 canted bay window in the middle of this section. Various levels of
roof line suggest the different periods of build. Axial stack.
