2/8 COMPLEX OF FARM BUILDINGS W OF PECKERS FARMHOUSE

GV II

Integrated range of farm buildings, late C19. Yellow stock bricks ornamented with bands of red bricks and red moulded wall tiles, with roofs of slate. 'A mid-Victorian "industrial" version of the familiar U-pattern farmstead which established itself in the late eighteenth century' (Harvey). Stables, 2 barns, shelter shed, dairy and ancillary buildings forming a square yard open towards the farmhouse on the SE, and a separate block of pigsties and wagon shed forming an L-plan to the SW, the intermediate foldyard enclosed by brick walls between the blocks. NE elevation - rear wall of one block divided into 5 bays by brick pilasters, with a band of red bricks and red moulded tiles of foliate design below the eaves; and the gable end of one barn with 2 brick pilasters, the pediment outlined by a band of red moulded tiles of egg-and-dart design, with a central recessed square panel containing red moulded tiles of foliate design. Both barns retain all original doors and winnowing boards. The shelter shed on SW side of main block retains a scalloped wooden canopy, although blocked in below. All interiors are in unusually intact condition, with original feed chutes and other features. The whole complex was built between 1874 and 1895 (O.S. maps), the main block probably very early in this period, the pigsty block probably added later in the period, by the Maryon-Wilson family, landlords, to serve a tenant farm which comprised 231 acres in 1847 (tithe award). Harvey: letter of 23 December 1982 from Dr. Nigel Harvey, Honorary Librarian of the Royal Agricultural Society of England.
