(Farm track to north-
Diggins Farmhouse



Farmhouse, c.1600 and Late 018 early C19 and timber framed and plastered. Of
two storeys and a complex, square plan form composed of three ranges of varying
dates. The range facing south-east has a range of 4 double hung sashes with
small square panes over 3 similar windows and a rear central early C19 door
with flat hood and scroll brackets. The peg tile roof has hips at either end
returning to the side ranges. Behind the ridge is a pair of symmetrically
disposed C18 stacks, rebuilt to old form. The north-west range, encased in
painted brick with a parapetted gable, is of two storey. The south-east range
has a 2 storey block with hipped peg tile roof and then a C20 single storey
hipped roofed block with gabled dormer in the south-east facing roof slopes. To
the rear, the blocks are linked by a painted brick parapet. Windows in rear
ranges are mixture of C19 and C20 casements with small panes. Internally
the north-west range is of late C16, high quality framing with tapering jowls
and broadly stop chamfered bridging joists. Side purlin roof with collars and
large curved windbracing. One tiebeam at first floor level is unusual in that
the soffit is moulded at its junction with the jowled post. Some fragments of
C17 panelling one section with a carved frieze. Staircase has moulded handrail
and square newel posts of C17 staircase reused.
