1264-0/8/78 (East side)
31/01/67 Wash Farmhouse
(Formerly Listed as:
Wash House)
Farmhouse. Dated 1670, with C20 additions and alterations.
Coursed squared gritstone with ashlar dressings, quoins, coped
gables with moulded kneelers, ridge and gable ashlar stacks,
and a Welsh slate roof. West elevation of 2 storeys and
attics, 4 bays, with a former doorway against the ridge stack
giving a lobby entrance plan. The doorway, with a massive
lintel and a quoined surround, is now blocked, with inserted
coupled 4 x 3 pane glazing bar sashes standing on a masonry
base. To the north of the former doorway is the present
doorway with C20 door. At the north end, an altered 3-light
chamfered mullioned window. To the south of the earlier
doorway is a single-light C17 window, and, at the west end, a
modern 2-light casement in an earlier surround. The window and
doorway heads are linked by a string course, which steps
upwards over the original doorway. At first floor level are 2
unaltered 3-light chamfered mullioned windows beneath
individual drip moulds, together with a single-light C17
opening and a later 2-light chamfered mullioned window. There
are 2 gabled dormers, with coped gables, moulded kneelers, and
ball finials to the gable apex. These have 3-light chamfered
mullioned windows beneath drip mouldings. The north gabled
dormer apex carries a plaque inscribed 'I M N 1670'. The south
dormer has a C18 firemark. Windows are generally leaded
casements; those to the attics appear to be early. The
remodelling and extension to the rear was carried out in 1988.
