Moor View in Preston built in the 17th century. Whitewashed rendered cob; thatched roof, half-hipped at left end, gabled at right end; axial stack, projecting right end stack; 19th or 20th century rear left stack. The 17th century plan was probably 3 rooms and a cross or through passage, the hall stack backing on to the passage and unheated lower end (left hand) and inner (right hand) rooms. A 19th century stair has been inserted at the rear of the passage and the inner room is now heated. A change in plane on the rear wall suggests that there has been some substantial rebuilding. 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3 window front, the eaves thatch eyebrowed over the 3 first floor windows. 20th century porch to left of centre with a lean-to roof and 20th century front door. Ground floor windows 2 and 3-light casements, 3 panes per light. First floor windows 2-light casements, 2 panes per light. Interior: the hall has a 20th century grate, probably concealing an earlier fireplace and a 17th century chamfered half beam with scroll stops. The exposed joists are probably later replacements. Collar rafter roof trusses, the collars halved and pegged on to the principal rafters.
