22/10026 Hoards Park Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Circa early to mid C16; remodelled circa mid to late C17; extended and altered in 1875. Timber-framed, largely rebuilt in brick of English bond and English garden wall bond, partly rendered; attic timber-framed with herring-bone pattern panels. Plain clay tile roofs with stone-coped gable ends and moulded shaped and pierced bargeboards. Huge axial, lateral and gable-end stacks with multiple brick shafts, some diagonally set. PLAN: Long building on N-S axis. The original building was timber-framed and at the south end the cross-wing was jettied on three sides, but it is uncertain whether the main range had an open hall or was two-storeyed, the large lateral stack on the east side might be original or a later C16 insertion; the N.W. wing was possibly also timber-framed and has a large gable-end stack. In circa mid to late C17 the timber-frame was clad in brick, the building was lengthened at the north end with a narrow outshut on the east side and a long attic storey was added the full length of the building; the attic is open throughout and without partitions, only interrupted by a large axial stack near the north end; this produced an unusual composition of tiers of integral lean-tos on the east and west sides and an imposing north gable end with a large stone mullion window to each storey. In 1875 the N.W. wing was clad in brick and a further wing was built to the S.E. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys and attic. Asymmetrical 1:2:1 bay west front with projecting gable-ended wings to left and right; centre two bays have late C19 3 and 4-light wooden mullion windows, with transoms on ground floor; doorway on right of centre with late C19 open porch with lean-to roof Timber-framed attic storey set back on roof with small timber-framed gable on left of centre. At rear [east] two tiers of integral brick lean-tos stepped back to timber-framed attic storey above, the ground and first floors have 2 and 3-light stone mullion windows and at the centre there is a very large projecting lateral brick stack with four rebuilt brick shafts; to the left of stack a late C19 wooden lattice porch and on extreme right the late C19 wing with shield in gable inscribed "Restored 1875" and with the initials of Foster; left [south] return, 3 bays, centre gabled. The north gable end is unaltered and has ends of lean-tos to left and right, the right in one tier, the left in two tiers, with stone coping and kneelers; 3-light stone mullion window on each floor with hoodmoulds, first floor with transom and small blocked single-light window on the right. INTERIOR. Entrance hall has encaustic tile floor of circa 1875, probably Maws tiles. Staircase of circa 1875. Room in south cross-wing with roll-and-hollow moulded ceiling beams and dragon-beam and dado, probably of C17 reused panelling and painted Gothic chimneypiece. Another room also has Gothic stone chimneypiece. Kitchen, probably site of hall, has very large blocked fireplace with elliptical arch and round-arched opening to left, now a cupboard but probably originally a smoking chamber. Washroom, in N.W. wing, has heavy ceiling beams and large open fireplace
