ST4715 NORTON SUB HAMDON CP RECTORY LANE (West side) 9/234 Homefield (formerly listed as Folly's) 19.4.61 GV II* Detached house, formerly subdivided. C17 and later, but possibly with earlier fragments. Ham stone, southern section near-ashlar, remainder roughly cut and squared with ashlar dressings; thatched roofs between coped gables; stone slab chimney stacks. South sector 2 storeys with attic, 2 bays; north sector single-storey with attics, 5 bays. Hollow chamfered mullioned windows in chamfered recesses; bays 1 and 2 taller, with shared label above and separate labels below to 2-light windows, the lower diamond leaded; remaining windows 2-light except lower bay which is 4-light, all with labels, rectangular leaded with some iron framed opening lights; upper windows in gables to bays 4, 6 and 7, that to bay 6 incorporating projecting chimney stack also, and a small rectangular attic window; small single light window without label to right of bay 7: to north gable a single storey extension with hipped double Roman clay tiled roof, with moulded cambered arched doorway, possibly C19: signs of a possible former doorway to bay 5: second entrance under porch on south gable, which also features a fire insurance plaque, through a cambered arched gateway; further mullioned windows above porch. West elevation has similar windows with flat head lights, but 2 in the south section have 4-centre arched lights, also two stair turrets, the more northerly still in use, and a cambered head doorway, which on the evidence of an early photograph has been relocated. Interior not seen, but reported is a complex and somewhat altered plan: the lower south room a parlour, from which the stair has been removed; the entry room has beams with rounded step and runout stops, an ovolo mould square headed fireplace and an ovolo mould doorframe; the north section now all one room, with lateral fireplace, square headed with ogee mould, towards south end; stair beside former entry has turned balusters and heavy posts; the north end, formerly kitchen has an adapted large fireplace in north gable, and alongside a cambered arched ovolo mould doorway; above scroll stop ceiling beams. Roof frame appears to reuse a number of medieval timbers, the trusses having slightly cambered collars with diagonally set ridge and trenched purlins. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, April 1981).

These photographs of the exterior of listed buildings were taken by volunteers between 1999 and 2008. The project was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
