SP 12 SW
5/55 Aylesworth House


Smart farmhouse. c.1700 extended in c1800, doubling its site. Coursed and
squared rubble with hipped plain tile rubble. Originally shallow U-plan house
with large chimney-stack projecting to ends of each of the parallel ranges capped
with ashlar shafts; SW chimneys engulfed in C19 extension which made the house
square in plan. 3 storeys. Road front unusual; central arched doorway in
moulded surround, 1 range of keyed bulls-eye windows over (different in position,
size and ornament). The flanking chimneys have paired square shafts and moulded
capping. Return wings have hollow-chamfer mullioned window in older parts; 1
range to SE, transomed on 1st floor, modern doorway on ground floor and late C19
bay to right; 2 ranges to NW, 2 and 3-light, with Tudor-arch doorway between.
The SW front (later) is 3 windows wide, the outer in arched recesses on ground
and 1st floors for tripartite windows, plate-glass sashes; cill bands to 1st and
2nd floors; central arched doorway with long brackets to pediment, curved foliate
brackets flanking threshold. Interior: inner door on NW front with double-ogee
mouldings. Large earthworks to west may indicate a garden layout of the C18 or
earlier. The Aylesworth family were important in local politics during the Civil
War period.
