5/6 Bayston Farmhouse -

- II

Farmhouse. Partly medieval (probably C15) with considerable C17 and later additions and alterations. Timber framed with painted brick infill and partly clad in red brick (random bond), plain tile roofs. Now roughly L-shaped in plan; former open hall aligned north-south with 2 projecting gables to left and right; the range at right-angles to rear on left may be contemporary or a C16/C17 addition; it now has a catslide outshut against north side and an apparently mid-C19 gabled projection at right-angles to north-west corner; late C19 flat-roofed addition abutting left-hand gable to front. One storey and attic, cellars; dentilled eaves cornice to front; framing: best preserved on back (east) wall; irregular square and rectangular panels, 3 from cill to wall-plate with position of blocked doorway to centre; the gables to front are also timber framed, the left-hand one with a jetty supported on carved corner brackets and the right-hand one under-built in brick; 1:1:1 windows, 2-, 3- and 4-light late C19 casements with gabled dormer to centre (except one horned 16-paned sash to lower right); entrance in angle between hall and left-hand gable, C20 door; prominent lateral red brick stack to north end and a smaller C19 external end stack to south; re-built ridge stack at south end of hall range. The range at right-angles to rear has 2 late C19 casements to either side of boarded door, all with segmental heads and with gabled eaves dormers above; staircase window to left, brick end stack. Interior not inspected but likely to be of interest.
