6/54 Moor Farm House and barn
House. C14/C15 cruck built open hall; late C16/early C17 floor and stack
inserted; later C17 red brick walls; late C18 roof raise and first floor added.
Timber-frame replaced almost entirely in walls by red brick, Flemish bond on
sandstone plinth. Steeply pitched late C18 roof, now covered in interlocking
tiles to front pitch and plain-tiled to rear. Central stack, early C17, off the
ridge with coursed and squared sandstone with diagonally set shafts of red
brick. Later end stacks. The one at the east end has 2 flues. Plan: Single bay
remaining from the C14/C15 open hall. Evidence of the full extent of the
medieval building is not visible. Present plan is of 3 units with cross-passage
behind the stack. In the early C18 the house was extended by a single unit
service room at east end. Main range: 2 storeys. Segmental arches to 3 C19
3-light casements at first floor. At ground floor, doorway to cross-passage with
C19 half glazed door. On the front a short parlour extension of late C18/early
C19. Red brick, Flemish bond and plain-tiled roof. One recessed 12-pane hung
sash at first and ground floors. At the east end a single bay kitchen wing of
early C18. Red brick with timber-framed east gable end wall and end stack of 2
flues. 1 storey and attic. C20 eaves dormer. Flat arches of rubbed brickwork
with raised sandstone keyblock to C20 casement, and to doorway in pegged wood
frame. C19 bead and quirk boarded door. Interior: Parts of the 2 cruck built
trusses of the open hall are visible. The blades rest on a plinth probably of
sandstone rubble. There is a spur to the wall plate. The timber-framed walls
have been replaced. There is insufficient evidence to show whether they are full
or base crucks. In the rear wall of the bay at the west end some framing is
exposed. 2 adjacent openings have lintels for doorways now blocked. The original
open hall now has a stop-chamfered quartered ceiling and an inglenook hearth of
coursed and squared sandstone. Very little of the original framing is exposed.
Much has been removed by the later C17 and later C18/early C19 alterations and
roof raise. Barn adjoining on the north-east. Early C17, and late C18.
Timber-frame and red brick. Plain-tiled roof. 3 bays. Wagon opening on the
front. Interior has some of the roof trusses remaining.
