3/96 Honeypot Hall Farmhouse


Former farmhouse. Early to mid C17. Timber-framed, encased in random knapped
flint with an admixture of stone blocks in parts; Tudor red brick to quoins
and dressings; C18 red brick above the tie-beams in the apex of the gables.
At the rear, a short C18 timber-framed and rendered wing, flanked on each side
by lean-to extensions whose roofs continue the slope of the main roof. C20
shingles. 2 storeys and attics; main range with a 2-cell lobby-entrance form.
The internal chimney-stack has a plain rebuilt red brick shaft. 3 windows to
the first floor, 2 to the ground floor, all C20 2-light standard casements in
the orignal Tudor brick surrounds with segmental arched heads. A C20 gabled
enclosed half-glazed porch and entrance door. Interior with widely-spaced
studding and plain chamfered main beams exposed. One fireplace with-a plain
timber lintel. Roof to main range with clasped side purlins and principals; a
similar roof to the rear range but with a ridge-piece. The rear lean-to's are
difficult to date, since the flint walling and Tudor brick dressings cover
them also, without signs of an obvious join.
