SX69767014 Manorside, Fore Street (at present Luscombe Maye)
This building is present on the Tithe Map of 1843 when it was a farm holding, Westabrook’s Tenement (see source). Several fields are listed with the holding. William Pearse farmed at Town Farm on the opposite side of the road.
The present building is probably the one that existed in 1843 but modernisation has removed any clues as to its age. There is a covered way on the west side through to a court behind. The stone barn here on the west side with brick openings may or may not be the one shown on the Tithe Map.
The building is two-storey, rendered, with a single span slate roof. There is an oriel bay window over the alleyway and a pair of bay windows at ground and first floor levels on the east side. The windows are sash type and the door early 20th century.
