HYDE APETHORN LANE SJ 99 SW (south side) 6/14 Apethorn 22.12.69 Farmhouse - II* Farmhouse and shippon. C15 but with external walls and other features of the C17 to C19. Cruck-framed with brick and squared rubble walls and a graduated stone slate roof. Originally a 4-bay cruck-framed open-hall house (probably a long-house) but with a floor inserted in the C17 and other alterations during conversion to cottages. The elevation consists of a small gabled wing in bay 1, and a second bay both of which are in stone. The other 3 bays are in brick and have 3 doors relating to their use as a shippon. One ridge chimney. The east elevation, again with 3 bays in brick and the remainder in stone has 3 dormer windows rising from the eaves, one of them gabled. The gable onto the road has one ground floor window and a sash window above. The internal cruck-frame and roof construction are of particular note: 4 out of the 5 original cruck trusses survive; they have (although some have been removed) tie beams, collar ties and collar yokes and support the original roof construction. The second frame, now in the shippon, has an unusual feature on the east blade of a simply carved capital with rudimentary column beneath. An important example of an early house-type few of which remain in Greater Manchester. See report and plans by A. Pacey, December 1968 and R.C.H.M. photographic survey.
