11/15 Aldbrough St John
11/15 Manor Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Dated 1831. For the Duke of Northumberland. Sandstone rubble
with ashlar dressings, artificial stone slate roofs. Cruciform plan, 2
storeys and loft, 2:1:2 bays, Jacobethan style. Chamfered plinth. Quoins
with herringbone tooling and draughted margins. First-floor moulded sill
string. Mullion windows with hoodmoulds. In angle to left of central
projecting front wing, single-storey flat-roofed porch with part-glazed
vertical-panelled door in moulded surround with shouldered lintel and
hoodmould; cornice carrying ashlar parapet with moulded coping; single-light
window in left return. Matching single-storey projection in angle to right,
with single-light window. Central wing: 3-light windows, with transom on
first floor, and in gable above small light vent which retains the original
diamond glazing; 2-light window on ground floor of left and right returns.
Left range: 3-light window on ground floor; cross windows on first floor,
that above porch with original diamond glazing. Right range: 2-light
windows on ground floor; cross windows on first floor. Ashlar coping to end
and central gables. Paired ashlar octagonal chimneys over "crossing" and at
right end. Rear: steps up to first-floor part-glazed door in chamfered
surround to lower cross wing; lean-to in angle with wing, several lead
fluted rainwater heads. Left return: 2-light window on ground floor, single
light on gable. Interior: a roof timber has painted on it the date August
1831. This farm complex was the earliest of several in the area built by
the Duke of Northumberland. It was originally called Lucy Cross Farm (which
name is given on old Ordnance Survey maps), which is probably why the plan
chosen by the Duke was cruciform. (Lucy Cross was the name of a coaching
inn on the old Great North Road, and a destination of one section of
turnpike road.)
