(Formerly listed as
West Almer Farmhouse)
House. c1600, with early C17 extensions, and C20 alterations. Walls of
flint and limestone bands, some of ironstone rubble. Tile roof, with stone
slates in the lower courses. Rectangular block with central hall, with a
wing extending at right angles, the re-entrant being filled in the early
C17; two storeys and attic, irregular elevations. The long north west front
has a two storeyed angular bay, and another to its north side of similar
form (thought to be an introduction of c1600) but containing the entrance.
The porch bay is made more elaborate by having columns at the outer angle, a
crude Corinthian above a Doric order (new), and an arched opening with a
keystone. Windows are mostly stone-framed with mullions and hood-moulds of
the C17 and C20, filled with casements. There is a deep porch set against
the double gable of the north east elevation, and a C20 'Tudor' doorway in
the angle of the south west elevation. Nearby is an old wood framed pump,
containing a lead hopper-head with raised decoration, the date 1779, and the
letters E.T.D. Inside, there is C17 panelling, old doorways and remains of
the original roof truss. RCHM
