House. Circa 1500, altered c.1600 and in C19. Timber framed, faced with red
brick in Flemish bond, roofed with handmade red clay tiles and slate. 2-bay
hall range facing W, and 2-bay crosswing to right. One-bay rear extension to
crosswing, c.1600, with C19 stack in right wall. Early C19 2-storey extension
in rear angle, completing an approximately square plan, with 2 stacks in gault
brick, and slated hipped roof of shallow pitch. 2 storeys and attics. Ground
floor, 2 late C19 splayed bays of sashes of 2-4-2 lights. First floor, 4 late
C19 sashes of 4 lights in early C19 apertures with flat arches of gauged brick.
Attic gable, pair of similar windows. C20 door. C19 pierced bargeboards.
Granite bollard on front right corner. The rear gable end is weatherboarded,
with a carved bressumer in seventine designs, c.1600. The rear wall of the
early C19 extension is of painted brick, and in the N wall is an original bow
window of 36 lights, with internal folding shutters, a rare feature. The
interior of the hall has exposed transverse and axial beams of a floor inserted
in tile C16, and a small area of C17 pine panelling. The early C19 extension
retains the original rear door, half-glazed in parchemin design, and the
original stair with stick balusters. The crosswing has jowled posts. The
c.1600 rear extension has an original 3-light window at first-floor level, with
2 ovolo mullions and one diamond saddle bar, now blocked by the early C19
extension. The roof of the hall is of crownpost construction, the rafters
lightly smoke-blackened, the collar-purlin and all the collars except one
missing. The roof of the c.1600 rear extension has cranked collars. The name
derives from the Buck family, whose headstones are in the Quaker burial ground
at the rear. RCHM 16.
