31/01/67 Chander Hill Farmhouse and attached
boundary walls to South East and
North West
(Formerly Listed as:
Chanderhill Farm)


House and attached boundary walling to south-east and
north-west. Early C17, incorporating elements of earlier
house, with C19 and C20 alterations and additions. Thinly
coursed rubble Coal Measures Sandstone, quoined in part, with
ashlar dressings, single C20 sidewall stacks, and a concrete
tiled roof, with coped gables and moulded kneelers, mostly C18
or later. L-plan house, with advanced parlour wing to
north-east end, and with a C19 service wing to rear at
south-west end. South-east elevation: 2 storeys and attics to
both ranges, 4 bays, the main range of 3 bays extensively
remodelled externally, with off-centre doorway flanked by
3-light casement windows, all C20, with curved glazing bars
above asymmetrical transoms. Massive lintel to doorway and C20
glazed doors, all C20 joinery with glazing bars. Window
openings have fake wedge lintels. First floor windows of 2 and
3 lights. Between windows, evidence of blocked single-light
first-floor window. Advanced crosswing with central C17
ground-floor 6-light window, with double recessed chamfered
mullions and a major mullion to centre, below a drip mould.
First floor off-centre window of 4 lights, of similar
detailing, again with major mullion and with 2-light C17
chamfered mullioned window to attic. C20 glazing throughout.
North-west elevation, with crosswing gable slightly advanced,
and 3-light chamfered mullioned window to ground and first
floors, below a 2-light C17 attic window, all without drip
moulds. C18 coping and kneelers. Main range with single tall
2-light C19 window with transoms, curved glazing bar heads,
all below false wedge lintel. Evidence of blocked door and
window openings. C19 range to south-west end has plain gable
with single 2-light ground floor opening.
INTERIOR: Much altered, but evidence of former hearth position
to main range. Spine beams and oak joists evident throughout.
Exposed roof timbers to parlour wing have cambered collar and
tie beam truss supporting single purlin roof with curved
windbraces. Partition wall is close studded. A rare example of
the use of major mullions, and an early roof structure with
curved braces.
Attached boundary walls. That to the south-east of well
coursed square sandstone, defines south-west boundary against
Chanderhill Lane, and incorporates cellar window and garden
doorway, with massive monolithic jambs, bearer stones, and
lintel. Flat ashlar coping is ramped downwards in 2 steps,
reducing wall height from 2.5 to 1.5m along its length. Wall
terminates at the north-eastern gate pier of the garden
entrance, some 40m to the south-east. Attached wall to
north-west, 1.75m high, with half-round coping, terminates at
end of inward curve, against plain stone pier, the south-east
side of the service entrance to the rear (north-west) yard.
