1. 5410 HIGHWORTH FRIARS HILL Round Robin Farmhouse SU 29 SW 6/241


2. Dated 1772 though possibly rebuilt circa 1800. Two and a half storeys rubble with brick quoins and quoined brick dressings and a 3 course band of vitreous headers over the ground floor. Modern tile roof with 2 hipped dormers and gable end chimneys (plus another). Three bays, segmental headed glazing bar sash windows in moulded frames. Projecting gabled C20 porch left of centre with a Regency knocker. Blocked door right of centre, above is a stone tablet inscribed F.W. A.D. 1772, and a Royal Exchange Fire Insurance Mark (No 186744) taken out in 1801 for house, dairy, barns, rickyards and utensils. L plan extension to rear with 2 ridge heights, lower part stone tiled. The nearby contemporary barn and granary have lost their roofs and are not of special interest. The farmhouse is significant as an early dated example of the use of brick quoins and dressings which became common in the C19.
