3/93 Stone House

- II

House. Early to mid- C17 with C18 or C19 alterations and late C20
addition. Roughly dressed red sandstone and uncoursed red sandstone
rubble with grey sandstone ashlar dressings; C20 machine tile roof.
T-plan with projecting 2-bay gabled cross wing to left. One storey
and attic. Central brick ridge stack. Two C20 plate-glass square
windows in C19 openings to right, that to left with segmental brick
head; cross wing to left has double-chamfered 3-light stone mullioned
window to each floor with coved dripmould above each and square datestone
in apex of gable inscribed: "IC/16?9" (possibly 1629 or 1639) with
dripmould above. Right-hand gable end with ground-floor 3-light casement
and 2-light attic casement. Late C20 addition set back to left with
boarded door to right. Interior: collar and tie-beam trusses with
queen struts and v-struts; timber framed cross walls; chamfered beams
and joists with ogee stops; large open fireplace with chamfered dressed
sandstone reveals and large lintel; winder staircase with chamfered
square newel post. The initials on the datestone might refer to Joseph
Charlton who occupied a one-hearth house in the village in 1662.
The house had ceased to be a farmhouse in 1844. The cross wing is
built of roughly dressed Cl7 masonry but the hall range is of uncoursed
rubble which might be a C18 or C19 rebuilding. V.C.H., Vol. VIII,
p.150. ~ ~
