and alterations, mainly in mid C19. Timber-framed, now mostly clad in uncoursed
limestone rubble; slate roofs graded to front slope, slightly projecting end
stack and 2 brick ridge stacks. Roughly T-shaped in plan. Partridge
Farmhouse. 2 storeys; 3 windows, C20 casements, those on ground floor under
C19 cambered brick heads; central C20 half-glazed door and porch. The 1½
storeyed wing at right angles to the rear (now mainly Partridge Farm Cottage)
was possible originally the main part of the house; it retains some timber
framing visible below the eaves and was probably once jettied to the first
floor; the left hand end of the range is mid C19 (note the difference in
the height of the eaves in the 2 parts). Interior. Retains some structural
wall framing (rectangular panelling), showing that the right hand end of
Partridge Farmhouse is a later addition; massive double purlins (now plastered
over) and heavy beams and joists; an infilled inglenook fireplace (beneath
the more prominent of the 2 ridge stacks) occupies much of the dividing wall
between the 2 properties.
