3/71 Wool Greaves Farmhouse

GV Il*

Farmhouse. Dated 1672. Thinly-coursed rubble with quoins. Stone slate roof
(re-roofed) L-plan, 2 bays with cross-wing on right. Two storeys. Double-
chamfered windows with hoodmoulds. Entrance to left with quoined surrounds
and Tudor-arched lintel inscribed:

"Intret fides
exeot fraus
J.M. 1672 R.M."

Hoodmould continues over a 5-light window to right above which is a further
5-light window. The gabled wing has a 4-light window to each floor with
evidence of a doorway to left of ground-floor window. Oculus and dove
perches in gable apex. Hollow-chamfered gable copings on moulded kneelers.
Ashlar stack to left and to centre of wing. Rear (to road): 3-light windows
under hoodmoulds to gabled left bay with oculus in apex. Finials at verges.
One single and two 2-light windows to right, and a 2-light window to
1st floor.

Interior: moulded bressumer across left room with arch cut cut for the door.
Panelled screen to heck-post forms the lobby. The right post has gone.
Right end of bressumer and right spine beam are grooved for partitions. The
stair at rear is enclosed in panelling.

A good and relatively complete example of the type.
