WHEELTON VICTORIA STREET SD 62 SW 6/210 Hill House - - II

Farmhouse and house, now all one dwelling. C17 and C19, altered and recently renovated. C19 house added to front of 1st two bays of 3-bay C17 house. All sandstone, the older part coursed thin sandstone rubble with large quoins, the addition watershot coursed with raised quoins, both with slate roofs (steeply pitched over the older part) and ridge chimneys. C17 house, 2 low storeys, has inter alia remains of recessed mullioned windows, some with hoodmoulds but lacking all mullions: one at ground floor of exposed front of 3rd bay, one at 1st floor of gable and 3 at ground floor of rear. C19 addition, 2 higher storeys, has 2 windows on each floor all formerly sashed with plain surrounds, but altered as casements with glazing bars and that at ground floor to left further altered; 2 similarly altered windows on each floor of right gable, and a plain doorway near the junction. Interior not inspected, but believed to contain some features of interest (and absence of any original window openings at 1st floor of rear wall suggests possible cruck-framed origin).
