6/69 Lower Woods Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C17, probably re-modelled early C18; extended mid C20.
Limestone rubble with wooden lintels and some ashlar dressings; old plain-tile
roofs with rubble gable stacks. 2 storeys plus attic. Front has a 3-light
ovolo-moulded stone mullioned-and-transomed window to right, with renewed
2-light casements above and to the left. Irregular building lines extend up the
wall on both sides of the mullioned window. The right end wall has a large
chimney projection and 2 blocked openings. A lower range to left is mostly
obscured by the C20 projecting wing but has a steeply-pitched roof with a gable
stack. Rear of the higher section has renewed casements with some stop-chamfered
lintels, including those to partly-blocked cellar windows. Rear of narrower
lower range has a doorway with stop-chamfered lintel. The higher range has a
C18/C19 roof and may have been reduced in height. Interior: large open fireplace
with chamfered bressumer in lower range; higher range has an ovolo-moulded beam
and a fine stone Tudor-arched fireplace with ovolo mouldings and recessed
spandrels; noted as having a smaller similar fireplace upstairs. Formerly known
as Leicester's and reputed to have been a hunting lodge.
