1/72 Former farmhouse
west of
- Farmhouse

Farmhouse, more recently used as a piggery. Last quarter
C17. Dressed stone with graduated stone slate roof. 3-unit
2-storey plan which was extended by 2 bays to right in mid
C18 and with parallel ranges at rear in later C18. Quoins
and projecting plinth. Gabled single-storey porch between
bays 1 and 2 has initials and 1717 scratched on jamb. The
original house has 2, 5 and 3-light double-chamfered stone
mullion windows with hoodmoulds (the former with mullion
removed). Similar 2, 3 and 3-light first floor windows but
all with mullions removed. Coped gables with kneelers. The
addition to right has 4 and 3-light chamfered mullion
windows on each floor and on either side of a gabled porch
wing. Two 2-storey ranges added at the rear were probably
used as separate dwellings and flank an open lean-to
shelter. Interior much altered although the layout and basic
structure (including roof) remain.
