ST52SE WEST CAMEL CP BACK STREET

4/143 Naish's Farm House, with front boundary wall and gate piers 19.4.61 (Previously listed as Parsonage Farmhouse)

- II*

Farmhouse. Early C18. Local stone cut and squared, random coursed; plain clay tile roof, over base courses of stone slates, between coped gables; rendered end chimney stacks, 'T'-plan, 2-storeys of 3-bays. Central stone solid sided gabled porch with ball finial and clay tile roof; semi-circular doorway arch with keystone, 6-panel door inside; casement windows in flat voussoired arches with keystones, those to ground floor being cruciform, some crown glass. Extension on East side to match, of C19, with similar casements and semi-circular headed doorway now blocked with window. Gabled stair wing to rear, with ball finial; part glazed door with 8-panes, and above 2 semi-circular headed windows, leaded with much crown glass. Interior little altered except for new access to extension; very large entrance hall, compared with rooms, with chequered stone flag floor, balustered staircase, and C18 doors and doorcases; some ceiling cornices, a bolection mould fireplace. Rooms not seen. Low local stone front boundary wall with shallow coping swept up to square gate piers about 1.5 metres high, terminating in ball finials. The house not only a fairly complete survival, but of interest as being for generations home of the Parsons family, including the eccentric Henry Parsons, builder of Parson's Steeple on Steart Hill (qv). (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, December 1981).
