Type and Period (1)
The farmhouse is a grade II-listed timber-framed structure dating in part from the mid-16th century and in part from the early-17th century. The timber-framed barn is probably contemporary with the later part of the house, and is a typical example of its period with three bays and a central entrance in its eastern elevation. The walls were originally rendered externally, but are now weatherboarded, and its roof is a low-pitched replacement of the 20th century covered with corrugated asbestos. The original barn would have been steeply pitched for thatch at 55 degrees like that of the farmhouse. A 19th century lean-to shed with 20th century alterations extends the length of the rear, western elevation, and a small 19th century brick stable and hayloft adjoins the southern gable. No historic fixtures or fittings survive in the brick stable, but an 18th century timber-framed stable and hayloft which lies between the barn and farmhouse retains an unusually low hay rack and manger that may been designed for cattle.
