Farmhouse. Late C16, extended in early C17 with mid-C19 alterations.
Timber-framed with brick and rendered infill on rubble and brick base,
some brick replacement walling and partly roughcast; plain tiled roofs
with brick ridge stack to central range. H-plan; main range of three
framed bays aligned east/west with single-bay north-east wing. Main
range has large chimney in its west bay and wing has external chimney
on its east side. During the early Cl7 a cross-wing of two framed bays
was added at the west end which has an external rubble chimney with off-
sets and a brick stack on its west side. Between the wings, on the north
side, a lean-to porch with a catslide roof was also added at this time.
Two storeys. Framing: two rows of square panels per storey. C16 wing
has a north end collar and tie-beam truss with four struts and a V-strut
in the apex. Cl7 cross-wing has a north end collar and tie-beam truss
with two collars, four struts to lower collar and two to upper collar.
The lean-to porch has two rows of panels from sill to wall-plate.
North front elevation: central porch has a 3-light C19 casement and a
ledged and battened door. Left gable end has a 2-light C19 casement on
both floors, the ground floor window has a plank weathering. The north
gable end has a 3-light C19 casement on both floors. There is a weather-
boarded lean-to addition with a catslide roof on the east side enclosing
the external east chimney. Also adjoining the east end of the main range
is a timber-framed wing of two bays with a doorway in its north front
elevation. Interior: main range noted as having retained most of its
internal framing and also has a large fireplace in the west bay. The two-
bay east wing has a central upper open cruck truss with an upper king strut
above the collar. The cruck blades are very slender and elbowed. (RCHM,
Herefs, Vol III, p 57; BoE, p 128).
