Farmhouse. Possibly late C16 in origins, extended in C17 with considerable C19 and
C20 alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Asbestos slate roof with brick
stack at left gable end and rendered stack at right gable end. Brick shaft to rear
hall stack enclosed by 2-storey outshut.
Basically 3-room and through-passage plan with parlour to right of passage at upper
end, hall to left and service room at left lower end. 2-storey outshut to rear.
Staircases at each end of rear outshut. Plan development unclear as entire range
reroofed in C19. Possibly originally 2-room and through-passage plan with massive
cob wall between hall and service end. Similar partition wall between passage and
parlour suggests latter may have been rebuilt. Lower left end of hall also
partitioned possibly in C18 to form narrow passage between service end and hall.
2 storeys. 4-window range C20 fenestration throughout. 2-light casements. Late
C19 timber porch with shaped struts supporting the canopy. 4-panelled door, upper
panels glazed. Plank door into service room at left lower end.
Interior. Some raised and fielded 2-panelled doors survive, 1 to rear of passage at
lower end of hall, and 2 to chambers over parlour end. Double brick creamery built
into lower end wall of hall. Chamfered headrail of plank and muntin screen in
service end reused as axial ceiling beam. Original fireplaces probably survive
behind C20 ones in all 3 ground floor rooms. Chamber over service room probably
originally used as apple loft or wool chamber.
