Oldhay Farm: architecture, construction and history

Place name:

Michaelchurch Escley


Up to 1700



(27). Oldhay Farm, house, nearly Âľ m. N.E. of (20), was built not later than the 15th century, possibly as a timber-framed building, but the walls have since been rebuilt in stone. About 1600 it was remodelled, extended towards the N.E. and a chimney-stack inserted; the porch on the S.E. front and the lean-to addition at the back of the house are possibly also of this date. In the addition is one old two-light window with a chamfered oak frame and rough stone label. Inside, the building is divided into four bays by original crutch-trusses.


Condition—Practically derelict.
