HEDGELEY LOW HEDGELEY NU 01 NE 4/238 Main group of farmbuildings to north-east of Low Hedgeley Farmhouse GV II

Planned farm buildings. Ranges enclosing original foldyard late C18; extended east to produce E plan c.l840-50; threshing barn and engine house mid-c19; north and north-west ranges later C19; covered yard c.1900. Mid- C19 parts probably by F.R. Wilson of Alnwick. Late C18 parts squared tooled stone; mid-C19 parts squared rubble with tooled-and-margined quoins and dressings; later C19 parts similar but with smoothly-cut dressings; c190O parts snecked stone. Welsh slate roofs except for C20 metal sheets on southern barn in north-west range.

Original foldyard group has north range with 4-bay segmental arcade, partly blocked, with 3 low loft windows directly beneath eaves; boarded doors, small-paned sash and fixed windows. The south ends of the original east range, and the east range of the extension, have Gothic detail; each has a stable door and a part-slatted window, with 2 blind windows above, the upper in stepped gable with moulded finials. Between these are the twin gables of the covered yard, each with a tall central opening under a timber lintel, flanked by blind windows. All openings in this facade have shouldered lintels.

The threshing barn, projecting to rear from the centre of the E-plan group, has varied fenestration; openings in alternating-block surrounds. Engine house to east has truncated ridge stack and a large boarded door; east again is pent cartshed with blocked 4-bay segmental arcade. The later Cl9 north range is an extension of the threshing barn; west elevation shows 5-bay arcade with timber lintels on piers with stepped corbelled heads, and part- slatted loft windows in chamfered surrounds.

The north-west range has a double-depth plan; the western part is a range of byres, the eastern 2 separate barns. East elevation: Southern barn has large opening with stable door to left; central recess between the barns has large opening to byres, north barn has large opening with pitching door over in gabled left return, and roof hipped to right. All large openings have shouldered arches with timber lintels.

Interiors: Covered yards have queen-post roof trusses carried by axial and transverse arcades of cast-iron columns and moulded stone corbels.

Historical note: Low Hedgeley became the home farm for Hedgeley Hall (formerly High Hedgeley) after the Carr-Ellison family purchased the estate c.1780.
