GREAT EASTON Croys Grange (formerly Bridgefoot Farm) TL 62 3NW: 4/88
House, late-C16 and mid-cl9. 2 storey, timber framed, with external plaster, but with ground floor partly encased in red brick. Gabled peg tile roofs. Basically 'L' shaped plan form with additional brick, large, single storey, gabled, bakehouse block and hipped lean-to, on E end. The rear has remnants of 2 stairtowers and C19 gabled 2 storey extension. Front is C19, refacing with ground floor red bricks and imitation timber framing, with 2 gabled bay windows with contemporary orolo mullions and leaded lights. Off-centre gabled porch, arch braced collar and-turned posts on red brick plinth. A gabled projection at the E end has similar detail and the W end is jettied. Off-centre, rebuilt concertina stack and smaller, similar original stack, projecting through roof of bakehouse. The rear has some old pargeting and mixture of timber casements and old cast iron leaded light casements. The interior reveals 2 separate houses, at right angles. That, to the E, at right angles to the road frontage is slightly earlier and has the smaller stack serving the service end.
This has possible open hall and soffit tenon with diminished haunch floor and big tie beam braces, roof is side purlin with wind bracing and these and other wall braces have distinctive 'cranked' form. The other unit was floored throughout, with curved external bracing. The stack forms a 'baffle entry' and has, tunnel through, like Breach Farm. Roof is clasped side purlin. (RCHM 7).
