GV II*


Farmhouse, now house. c1640, altered mid- to late C17 with mid-C19 altera-
tions and additions. Timber-framed with painted brick and rendered infill,
some brick replacement walling on sandstone base; plain tiled roofs. Hall
and cross-wing plan; hall of probably two framed bays aligned east/west
with small staircase wing to south-west and large external chimney on north
side, brick stack; cross-wing at east gable end of two framed bays. Later
during the C17 a large wing was added to the entire north elevation of the
hall and also a smaller south wing to infill the space between the staircase
wing and the main cross-wing. Two storeys, attic and cellar. Framing: mainly
six panels from sill to wall-plate and short straight braces in some upper
corners; west gable end of hall was jettied at first floor level but has been
underbuilt; cross-wing is jettied on moulded consoles at first floor level
on its three external walls; hall and cross-wing have jettied attic storeys
(all jetties are very shallow); collar and tie-beam trusses throughout with
long struts and lower rails. Windows are mainly replacement oak mullion type
("many with transoms). South front elevation: hall part has hipped-roofed
staircase wing to left with 2-light first floor window and a small lean-to
with a square window; south wing gable end to right has tiled weatherings at
first floor and attic levels; a 3-light casement at ground and first floor
levels and an attic light. Cross-wing gable end has a tiled weathering at
first floor level, a 4-light ground floor window, a 5-light first floor window
and an attic light. Main entrance in west side of staircase wing with studded
and planked oak door (probably re-used). Interior: hall has large sandstone
fireplace about ten feet wide. Main entrance now leads into lobby from which
the left side door leads into the hall and the right side door into the lean-
to addition; the hall entrance is stop-chamfered on its lobby side and the lean-
to entrance is stop-chamfered on both sides; this suggests that the latter door
was the original main entrance. The original oak panelling within the house
was sold to an American buyer earlier in C20. (BoE, p 152).
