4/34 Stadhaugh Manor Farmhouse
-- II

Farmhouse. Mid C16 with slightly later wing to rear forming L-shape plan.
Restored 1867 and again early C20. Timber framed and plastered, partly lined
to imitate ashlar. Plaintiled roof with crest tiles. Scalloped bargeboards
to all gables. 2 storeys and attic. 3-cell main range. 3 windows to ground
floor, 2 small-paned sashes and a matching casement window; one sash window
only to first floor. Lobby entrance: mid C19 porch, the door with 2 glazed
upper panels; moulded architrave and cornice, probably of stone. One gabled
dormer. Internal stack rebuilt in white brick. Above the road gable a C19
wind vane with the date 1602. Rear range has mainly old casement windows.
Front range considerably modernised internally. Moulded bridging beam in
hall. Also in the hall a good early C17 overmantel with elaborate carving,
including flowers enclosed by guilloche work. More of the structure is
visible in the rear range: a first floor ceiling with moulded joists and a
blocked window with moulded square mullions. The end portion of this range
has been lost. Roof over main range has clasped purlins, over rear range
clasped and butt purlins, both roofs with arched wind-bracing. In 1718 John
Smith left the property to the parish for the purpose of endowing a school, in
whose ownership it remained until c.1950. Remains of medieval moat.
