Hodgkinson's Farmhouse

This farmhouse was built around 1700 and is a grade II listed building with an English Heritage legacy number of 185013. It was listed in 1984.

The farmhouse is a rendered clay and brick and has a thatched roof covered by corrugated iron. Many of the older thatched buildings were covered in this way.  It has one storey with attics, (classed as being 1 and an 1/2 storeys) and consists of a one-bay main range on the NE side of the building, and a cross wing. In the main range is a dormer, and in the cross wing is a stair window. Unfortunately all the windows are modern.

The plan of house given in Watson, R.C., "Parlours with External Entrances", Vernacular Architecture Vol.6,1975, p.30. It is believed that the cross-wing is a later addition as it is made of brick, and that framing for the original doorway was found above the right-hand window of the south-west wall, not in the position shown by Watson.
