Lady Arbour Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C17, altered mid-C19 and mid-C20. Rubble with hipped stone tiled roof and swept, overhanging bracketed eaves. Roof re-tiled circa 1940 and brick stack to main ridge rebuilt. There are also original rubble end chimneys which have handmade brick stacks and segmental-arched blind arcading with impost bands. Two storeys, attic with dormer and cellar. Four bays. Windows have C19 ashlar sills, ground floor windows have C19 hoodmoulds with returns. Windows on main storeys are all of mullion and transom type, some with original solid frames; the window in the third bay of the ground floor has been replaced with a 3-light casement. Central hipped- roofed dormer with 2-light casement. Main entrance in second bay has a C19 gabled painted brick porch with a four-centred archway, double doors and, within, an original C17 door. At the left end is a single-storey and attic service wing of five bays. There is a small area of timber-framing with brick infill in the front elevation. The fenestration is irregular and has largely inserted C20 casements. There is also a C20 gabled timber porch. At the rear left end is a two-bay rubble wing, the lower part of the walls is C17 or earlier. Adjoining the right end of the main house is a three-bay single-storey converted pigsty. It has two 2-light C20 casements and a door in its front elevation. Interior: timber-framed internal walling survives with rendered infill. Main ceiling beams are stop-chamfered. Some original panelling and doors retained, also original dog-leg staircase with moulded handrail and square moulded newels. The house was built on an E-plan, the central rear wing housing the staircase; the space between the wings has since been filled in, probably during-the C19. (RCHM, III, p 56, item 59).
