7/137 The Old Farm


House. "WRM 1698" on datestone with bay added in late C18
and single-storey additions of C19 and C20. English garden
wall bond brick, C18 Flemish bond and C20 stretcher bond
brickwork with stone slate roof. L-shaped plan with 2
storeys plus attics and single-storey stables (now part of
house) and garage (C20). 3-bay garden elevation (formerly
the front although the porch was removed to the rear of the
house in late C19). Stone quoins, first and second floor
brick corbel bands, coped gables with kneelers. Bay 1 has a
2-storey canted bay window with stone 4-light mullion
window which was added in late C19; a 3-light attic casement
window with curved brick hoodmould and relieving arch and
decorative lozenge brickwork. The 2-storey porch stood
between bays 1 and 2 where there is now a door. 4-light
casement windows to bay 2 on each floor with C19 dormer
window above. Bay 3 was built later as a bailiff's house
and has 2 3-light casement windows with cambered brick
arches. The rear of bay 1 has 5 windows with shaped
dripmoulds (3 of which are blocked) and 2 others. The re-
located porch is in the angle of the L and his a coped gable
with kneelers, datestone and corbel band. Interior retains
ovolo-moulded beams in the main room, and chamfered beams
otherwise with runout stops on the ground floor and stepped
stops on the first. A fine example of an early departure
from the Medieval and timber-framed traditions which
continued in the area.
