Sunder land Bridge
Farmhouse and adjoining, flanking barns. Early C18 farmhouse with C19
fenestration and c.1760 barns. Narrow hand-made brick in irregular bond and
brick chimney stacks. Barn at left has rubble return and Welsh slate roof.
House and barn at right have ridged concrete roof tiles.
2-storey farmhouse. 3 original blocked window openings on each floor.
Central late C20 door flanked by replaced 12-pane sashes in C19 openings with
flush stone lintels and projecting sills. Steeply-pitched roof has swept
eaves and partly rebuilt end stacks. Tumbled-in brick gables.
Single-storey, 2-bay barns break forward and have raised stone quoins at ends
and dentilled brick eaves. Each has a central blocked doorway in a raised
ashlar surround with oversized alternating jambs and a triple keystone. Barn
at right has steeply-pitched roof and tumbled-in brick gable. Barn at left
has roof of slightly lower pitch.
C20 lean-to shed on right return and derelict L-plan farmbuildings on rear
of barn at left are not of special interest.
Barns were added to farmhouse to form a symmetrical landscape feature
terminating the avenue running east from Croxdale Hall.
