Walsopthorne Farmhouse, Walsopthorne, Ashperton - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

A c1600 timber framed house built on a C plan to give an impression of size and stature. It is of two storeys built on a stone plinth with stone mullioned windows to the cellar and has a plain clay tile roof. The east range was historically the ‘high’ end, the west range was converted to farm use in the C19 with the addition of two brick hop kilns. The roof, rainwater goods, infill panels, doors and windows are in poor condition and there is evidence of movement in the east and west ranges.
