5/153 Limes Farmhouse
Former farmhouse. Circa mid C17, possibly with an earlier core; C20
alterations including refenestration. Framed construction, underbuilt in
brick, painted white, first floor tile-hung on the front elevation, plastered
on the north elevation; peg-tile roof; brick stacks.
Plan: The house faces east and is an approximate U plan with 2 parallel
blocks on a west-east axis with a linking block at right angles between them.
The details of the plan form and development of the building were unclear on
survey (1988) as access to the interior was not available. The south block
external detail suggests a mid/late C17 date but the north block may be
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. Almost symmetrical 3-window front, the south
block gabled to the front at the left, the north block roof half-hipped to the
front at the right. The south block gable is jettied with a richly-moulded
stopped C17 bresummer on brackets. All the windows are C20 plate glass
casements in enlarged openings. The base of one wall post is visible on the
front elevation and there is some exposed framing at ground floor level on the
right (north) return, which also has C20 casement windows. The north block
has 2 C20 stacks. A 1957 photograph in the National Monument Record shows
that an axial stack has been removed from the front block.
Interior: Access unobtainable at time of survey (1988).
An interior inspection might necessitate revising the suggested dating and
there may be interior features and a roof construction of interest. An
internal inspection should precede any application for alterations to ensure
that interesting internal features, including the possibility of an early
roof, are not disturbed.
