II

Farmhouse. Probably C17, re-modelled early C18 with early to mid-C19 additions and alterations. Purple and red brick (random and English bonds respectively); plain tiled roofs; ridge and end stacks. Probably originally a hall and cross-wing type, the cross-wing re-built and extended in early C18 with hall (possibly originally timber framed) re-faced in C19, at which time a lean-to addition was built to its rear. 2 storeys to hall (left), 2 storeys and attic to C18 cross-wing (right); hall probably of 3 structural bays; 1:1:1 windows, all 3-light mid-C19 casements, those on ground floor of hall and ground and first floors of cross-wing under cambered heads; mid-C19 gabled entrance porch immediately in line with ridge stack in angle between hall and cross- wing (note, however, that principal access may originally have been from other side, where cross-wing projects further and where any former entrance would now be hidden by C19 lean-to); floor bands carried round cross-wing with on the long side the positions of 8 narrow bricked-up windows visible, 4 to each floor. Interior: unchamfered spine beam and heavy joists to left-hand ground floor room of hall, while in the back wall to the right (formerly an external wall) timber framing was recently discovered (1984).
