Notes about this historic site

1 Map.
2 Oak Farm is of 3 periods. The original plan of T-shape is built of fairly close-set studding, now mostly plastered, and has one bay of the original roof of about 1550 with wind braced purlins. The bottom of the T, the W end, has a cross wing of square framing, added about 1600: this is plastered externally. The head of the T was lengthened another bay to the S late in the 17th century and afterwards was re-fronted with red brick. The farm buildings are all of the 17th century framing.
3 Much of the exterior of the farmhouse is rough-cast. It is not outstanding.
4 Farmhouse c1550, c1600, and late 17th century.
