6/58 Carleton Biggin Farmhouse
House, partly 1571 or earlier and partly mid C19. Rubble and dressed stone with
stone slate roof. The front is of two storeys with 3 bays of tall sash windows,
but straight joints between the bays indicate that this is a reworking of an older
structure. The left hand gable wall, which is of slobbered rubble, has 3 deep-set
double chamfered stone mullion windows, 2 close together at ground floor and one
above; all have hollow inner chamfer. Between the storeys is a stone with raised
characters interspersing the date 1571 with AC (for Clifford). A weathered plinth
of dressed stone reaches the eaves at one point. The interior has no apparent
features of interest.
This building appears to be a fragment of a hunting lodge of the Cliffords; the
Ordnance Survey of 1853 shows a much larger structure.
