5/67 Manor Farmhouse -

GV II*

Farmhouse. Early and late C16. Timber-framed, faced and partly encased in late C19 red brick, the remainder rendered. Part clay, part black-glazed, pantiles. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick shaft is set between the lower and higher ends of the house. Part 2 storeys, part 2 storeys and attic. Various C20 casement windows, and one large 4-light reproduction mullion-and-transome window. The older part of the house, to the west of the stack, is in 3 bays, divided on the ground floor into a 2-bay main room and an adjoining service room. The main room has a plain exposed ceiling with unchamfered joists. In the front wall, the evidence for a large 5-light diamond-mullioned window. On the upper floor, the whole area forms one large room: 2 open trusses with cambered tie-beams and long solid arched braces, ceiled off above so that the rafters are inaccessible. Blocked original diamond-mullioned windows in the side and gable walls. To the east of the stack is a late C16 parlour wing with which the stack is intergral. Ground- floor ceiling with very fine cross-beams; multiple roll-mouldings and roll- moulded joists and cornice. The moulding is continued down all the main posts. In the gable wall, originally jettied, was a mullion-and-transome oriel window, with short flanking side windows in which the moulded mullions survive. Plain timber lintels to both ground-and first-floor fireplaces. Original upper ceilings. Newel stair beside stack.
