9/18 Manor Farm House

- II

Farmhouse and attached farm building, now part of house. Late C16, altered
C18/early C19. Timber-framing and squared coursed limestone rubble with ashlar
dressings; old plain-tile roof with brick ridge-stacks. L-plan. 2 storeys.
Irregular 4-window front with flush 4-panel door to right of centre with 3-
light casement to right, pair of 4-pane sashes to left and 12-pane sash to
extreme left; four 2-light casements over. Wall is of C18/19 rubble with
timber lintels. Left gable wall of late C16 stonework with ashlar dressings
has projecting quoined stack with two brick diagonal shafts and blocked
ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned windows: 2-light at ground and first floors
and a single light in the gable. Right gable wall is of C18 banded rubble and
ashlar. Rear is rubble with flat stone arches at ground floor with Flemish-
bond brickwork above, probably replacing close-studding of which 2 posts
remain. 2-bay rear wing returns to right, continuous with 2-bay farm building.
Range is weatherboarded to right and end but left wall has exposed timber-
framing: house wing with close studding over a one-storey rubble base, and
farm building with framing in panels with curved braces, now on a storey-height
rubble base but formerly a panel lower. Interior: Moulded-stone Tudor arched
fireplace and remains of a second in C16 gable wall, also large C17 open
fireplace with bread-oven. Trusses to main range rise from posts with some
arched braces to tie-beams. Rear wing has exposed roof structure with curved
wind-braces to single row of butt pulins and arched braces to tie-beams. End
frames of wing and farm building are adjacent and mortices suggest a slightly
later date for the latter. Front wall of main range is certainly rebuilt and
possibly replaced full-height framing. The farm was a C15 and C16 benefaction
to Queens College Oxford, the former owners.
