near to Snodhill, Herefordshire, Great Britain

Upper Pen-y-Park
Upper Pen-y-Park
Derelict farm. The building shown appears to be of late C16 or Early C17. The lower part to the right is the original farmhouse and internally appears to have been divided into the residential half on the left and a cattle shed on the right. There is evidence of the residential section having two floors with lath-and-plaster internal walls. There is a fireplace on the ground floor. The interior has been cleared and used for animals, the dung being about 1.5-2 metres in depth. The left-hand building is clearly a later addition and contains a stone fireplace against the back wall. Also on this site is a Barn of possibly C15 date in a near collapsed state. The barn is cruck built with the cruck blades coming to ground level. The original building appears to have been re-clad in brick. The perlins have been laid flat on the cruck blades, not edge-on which would have been stronger. There is a building platform evident on the ground and an additional building is shown on early maps in this position. The entrance to the site appears to have been originally from the NW via a hollow way - now a footpath. I assume this site was originally part of Snodhill Park. Littlebury's Directory and Gazetteer of Herefordshire 1876-7 shows the farm was occupied by one Biblica Jones.
