2/37 Manor House
House. Early C19 front range; the rear range has been much rebuilt and
incorporates work of c.1300, C16, late C17 and C19. Front range. Pale yellow
brick, hipped slated roof . 2 storeys. 3 bays with flanking pilaster strips;
narrow centre bay. Inset sash windows with glazing bars, flat stuccoed
lintels; the first floor windows to left and right are blind. 6-panel
entrance door, semi-circular fanlight with glazing bars; the doorway is set
within a semi-circular arched recess. Wooden bracketed eaves cornice. Rear
range. Mainly timber framed, now faced in colourwashed brick; roof of black
pantiles. 2 storeys and attic. The part adjacent to the front range contains
fragements of one bay of a 2-bay late C13 or early C14 aisled hall from which
the aisles have been removed. There is one octagonal arcade post with a much
mutilated carved capital. The opposite post is not visible but may survive.
The open truss had doubled passing braces halved against the arcade post and
tie beam. The braces to the arcade plate and tie beam are missing but the
mortices remain. On the west side the arcade plate is fully exposed, with a
stop-splayed and tabled scarf joint with transverse key and sallied butts. An
intermediate tie beam (cf Purton Green Farmhouse, Stansfield) is placed over
this joint. The end truss is missing. The main timbers are numbered as
follows: tie beam, arcade plate and arcade post of open truss all IV;
additional tie beam and arcade plate V; arcade plate in position of missing
truss VI. 2 further bays were added in C16, perhaps when the present floor
was inserted in the open hall. Slightly moulded joists are exposed on both
floors, but much of the studwork has gone. The roof over the whole of this
rear range is C19.
