5/84 Upton Court
18.5.53
GV II*

Farmhouse. C14 core, largely remodelled during late C16, further C17
alterations, further remodelling during late C18 and early C19, C20
alterations. Timber-framed core largely refaced and replaced with sand-
stone rubble, C20 tiled roof. Hall range aligned north-east/south-west
with-late C16 cross-wing to south-west end. Through-passage now obscured
by later alterations, gable-end stack to hall; lateral stack to cross-wing.
C20 additions to rear parallel with hall range and further minor additions
to south-east front. Two storeys; south-east front: gable end of cross-
wing to left with 4-light and transomed C19 casement window, three 2-light
casement windows to hall range to right, C20 porch and door to left of
centre, enlarged C20 window and C20 French casement to right; single storey
later addition further to right. A 4-light stone mullioned window survives
to south-west return of cross-wing and fragmentary herringbone framing
survives in gable end to rear of cross-wing. Interior: largely altered
during C20 but retaining five-bay smoke-blackened roof of C14 hall range;
collar and tie-beam trusses with moulded ridge and principals cusped above
collar level. Trusses appear to have been altered at a later date with the
addition of swept braces to collar-beam. One truss retains a section of
cusping below the collar. The C14 block seems to have extended further to
the south. Listed II* for the importance of its roof structure. The panel-
ling in the south-west room mentioned by RCHM has been removed. (RCHM Vol II,
P 194).
