7/30 Valley Farmhouse
at TN 366 469
Farmhouse. C17, early C18 and C19. Timber-framed with later brick skin,
and red Flemish bond brick with a plain tile roof. Two storeys and attic.
L-shaped plan. Garden front: at left is the projecting gabled wing which
appears to be the earliest, C17 portion, now clothed in C18 or C19 brick.
This has a lean-to outshut to its gable end. The right flank has C20
French windows to the ground floor and a 3-light casement above. To right
of this wing is the C18 portion which has a stable door at left with
cambered head. To left of this a 2-light window and to right of it a 3-
light casement with flat-arched head. To right again a single-light
casement and to the far right French windows with a moulded surround,
possibly of late C19 date. The first floor has two 3-light and three 2-
light casement windows with flat-arched heads. To the attic are two 2-
light dormer windows with flat roofs. Ridge chimney-stack of 4 flues to
right of centre. The right hand gable end has one 3-light attic window.
To right of this is the C19 addition, also of red Flemish bond brick.
Cambered-headed sash window of 3x4 lights to the ground floor. The left
hand side is also of 2 builds the earliest portion being at right but
refaced, having a 3-light cambered-headed ground floor window at right and
two 2-light windows to the first floor, that at right with a flat head,
that at left with a cambered head. The gable at left has a 2-light attic
window, recessed and at left of this is the C19 portion. Entrance front: 3
near-symmetrically disposed C19 bays. Projecting gabled wings at either
side of a slightly recessed porchway. The wings have cambered-headed sash
windows to both floors of 3x4 panes. The porchway appears, from the
brickwork, to be a later C19 addition, built in front of a recessed portion
of walling which has the entrance door of 6 panels at left with cambered
head. The porch has a round arch and is approached by 3 moulded ashlar
steps and has a band at the level of the springing of the arch. Above
this, to the first floor is a sash window of 3x4 panes.

Interior: chamfered ceiling beams and some close studding to the C17
portion. Ovolo-moulded ceiling beams and a baffle-entry plan to the early
C18 portion and panelled shutters and cases which lie flush with the wall
to the C19 portion.
