Architecture Notes

NR36SW 14.02 33570 62855

Situated on higher ground about 90 m E of the house is the main SW range of the farm steading (NR335 628), which probably dates from the later 18th century."* It is a plain harled building of two storeys comprising adjacent nine- and five-bay units and measuring 51.2m in length over all. An advanced and pedimented frontispiece contains a segmental-arched pend, and the pediment is capped by a stone-built clock-turret which formerly supported a belfry and finial as shown in a Heath watercolour of c.1830. Part of the range has been modernised to serve as a garage and store, but it retains stabling facilities to the S of the pend. The rest of the farmstead comprises various ranges of domestic and agricultural buildings loosely grouped around a large courtyard, the farm manager's house and its flanking buildings standing behind a screen-wall in the NW angle.

Visited May 1976
