3/135 Manor Farmhouse and attached
Farmhouse, now house. Probably mid C17 and 1685 (on datestone) extended C19.
Coursed squared marlstone with some wooden lintels and some ashlar dressings;
Stonesfield-slate, concrete plain-tile and corrugated-asbestos roofs with brick
stacks. 3-unit through-passage plan in 2 builds plus added rear wing. 2 storeys
plus attic. 2 bays to left of 3-window front are earlier and have a 2-storey
late-C17 gabled porch projecting on the right, with a fine 4-centre-arched
moulded entrance below a 3-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned window, both with
labels; earlier arched inner doorway has a plain chamfer and a fine contemporary
ribbed door with a wooden latch. To left of porch at each floor is a 3-light
transomed wooden window, altered to take wooden opening lights. Immediately left
of porch is a similar single-light window (probably inserted) and to right are
further similar windows of 3, 2 and 2 lights at ground floor; first floor has a
3-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned window. Chamfered plinth is not continued
on right side of porch and beyond; oval date plaque on the later bay is
inscribed "T.W./1685" probably for Thomas Welman. Steep-pitched roof has stacks
to left gable and to right of centre. Rear has further altered transomed windows
plus ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned windows of 2 and 3 lights, now blocked by the
C19 wing which returns from the right. Interior: chamfered beams. C17
steep-roofed outbuilding, extending from the left, has trusses which cross at
the apex, and retains most of the loft floor.
