SO 27 NE CLUN C.P. B 4368 (South side)

6/35 Lower Spoad Farmhouse 1.12.51. and small barn adjoining to North (formerly listed as Lower Spoad)

GV II*

Possibly hunting lodge, now farmhouse and small barn. Probably C14 or C15 with C16 alterations, probably C18 or C19 refacing and probably mid to late C19 additions. Timber framed, of cruck construction; rebuilt or refaced and extended in coursed limestone rubble, partly painted; slate roof. Probably 3 or 4 framed bays with later cross- wing to left forming L-plan. One storey and attic, 2 storeys, and 2 storeys and attic. Large stone ridge stack off-centre to right; cross-wing with integral lateral brick stack to left and external stone end stack at rear. Left-hand gable with 2-light C20 attic casement and 2 first floor mid-to-late C19 three-light casements; boarded door with C20 glazed porch between first and second windows from right; later lean-to addition to left and large barn abutting at right- angle to right (q.v.). Rear: raised eaves to main range; small barn to North with vents; stone and slate roofed lean-to to North gable- end, formed from extended adjoining large barn (q.v.); half-glazed door with bracketed hood in angle of L. Interior: at least 4 full cruck trusses, 2 pairs to North visible inside barn; tie-beam and collar with V-struts, Alcock apex-type B; probably circa 1550 inserted stack and first floor in third framed bay from North, carved cambered fireplace lintel depicting hunting scene with doe and stag opposed in centre; pursued by hounds, moulded cross-beam ceiling with triangular-section joists (not common in the area). The farmhouse is reputed to have been a former Clun Forest hunting lodge. The farmhouse, small barn and adjoining large barn (q.v.) form a very impressive and exceptional group. The house and barn are graded II* because of their fine cruck structure and the carved fireplace lintel. B.O.E. p. 217; Arch. Camb. 87 (1932) pp 452-3, Fig. 13; Alcock, p.96; N.M.R.
