16/82 Manor Farmhouse
Manor house now farmhouse. Early and late C16, C18 and C19. Squared coursed
limestone with stone slate roof. Originally hall plan now double depth. 2
storeys with attic. Main front is a 3-window range of C19 sash windows, at first
floor, under wood lintels. Flanking canted wooden bay windows, at ground floor,
have French windows. Central 6-panel part-glazed door, has C19, flat-roofed,
ashlar parch, 3 hipped roof dormers with casement windows. Ashlar gable parapets
and ashlar end stack. Elevation to right is a 2-window range, with a 2-light
stone mullion window to right and casements with glazing bars to left. Large
lateral ashlar stack, to rear of front range, is to left of this elevation. This
range probably incorporates C16 work. Elevation to left of main front is a C19
two-window range of casement windows. Interior not inspected but central passage
noted as having C16 doorway with chamfered jambs and 2 C16 doorways with
triangular heads. The manor was acquired by Thomas Lord Cromwell in 1538. It
then passed to the Brudenells of Deene who almost entirely rebuilt the house in
1599. The main front was added in C18 and the rear range altered C19.
