(south side)
10/194 Booth's Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Dated 1663 with late C19 alterations. Very large coursed
dressed red sandstone; tiled roof; verge parapets with corbelled
kneelers; brick end stack to left and ridge stack left of centre;
long, low 2-storey front of 3 windows; left side has 2 widely-spaced
2- and 4-light labelled chamfered mullioned casements to the ground
floor and the right side has a similar 4-light window under a C19
two-light casement (the only first-floor window); the elevation is
divided to right of centre by a 2-storey gabled porch projection of
greater eaves height than the house; the gable is blind other than a
small oculus to the centre of the first floor set in a square block with
inscribed circles in angles; later 'peephole' to ground floor.
Original entrance to right side of porch (now blocked) under Tudor
arch with moulded inset spandrels and 2-light mullioned casement
above. Rear elevation has large dormer of 4 labelled mullioned lights
(possibly of later construction than the body of the house) dated on
an inset plaque in moulded surround: AB
presumably referring to a member of 1663
the Booth family.
