SD 80 SE CHADDERTON FOXDENTON LANE (north-east side) 6/5 Foxdenton 30/5/63 Farmhouse - II Farmhouse. C18 and C19 brickwork, C17 hammer-dressed stone but incorporating a set of 3 cruck trusses which may be of medieval origin. Graduated stone slate roof partly replaced by corrugated sheet. The cruck building consists of 2 bays including a cross-passage. A gabled stone crosswing was added to the right and a brick crosswing to the front of the left bay. The brick walls of the main range replace former timber-framed walls. The whole is now of 2 storeys although the hall was probably open to the roof at one stage. The brick ranges have various window openings, some with flat brick arches, some with timber lintels and one with an elliptical brick arch. The left crosswing has a projecting gable chimney stack. The cross-passage is adjacent to the stone crosswing which has two small chamfered window openings. The right return has a 2- light (fire window) a 4- light and a 3-light ground floor window. Blocked 2 and 3- light windows on first floor and at rear. All have chamfered stone mullions some of which are recessed. The wing conceals the former gable-end of the house which contains decorative plasterwork at the apex. It also contains a timber-framed partition dividing it into 2 rooms. The house-part has an inglenook fireplace with heck post. Timber framed internal walls. The closed cruck trusses have tie-beams at ceiling height and their considerable dimensions suggest an early date. The survival of such a structure is rare in this area.
