3/81 Manor Farmhouse
14.7.55 (Formerly listed as Manor House)


Farmhouse. C16, extended in early C17 and in C18. 2 storeys and attics: 6 bays.
Timber-framed and plastered. Hipped roof, black glazed pantiles, coved plaster
cornice. Remains of a cross-wing at the east end, with red brick north gable
incorporating a chimney-stack. 3 red brick internal chimney-stacks with
corbelled-out heads to rectangular shafts. 4 early C20 3-light mullion-and-
transome type windows with hood moulds to ground storey, and one single-storey
canted bay with slate roof and similar windows: 6 similar windows to upper
storey. One flat-headed dormer window in the east slope of the roof. Off-
centre half-glazed door with flat pediment and bolection-moulded architrave.
The central 4 bays form the basic C16 building, though the layout is obscured
by later alterations. The C17 cross-wing at the east end was cut back in the
C18, when the house was refronted, and probably reroofed. Also dating from the
C18 are the room at the west end, with a coved ceiling and intersecting
plastered beams decorated with bead-and-reel ornament; the stair, with twisted
balusters and decorated open strings: and a small room beside the main entry,
with an original corner fireplace and plastered cornice with egg-and-dart
