Home Farm, brickwork and other design elements

Home Farm, Foxwarren Park

Designed by Charles Buxton with the assistance of Frederick Barnes

c. 1860

Near Cobham, Surrey

Above the open cloisters here are the "brick slits for windows, grouped five or six at a time under crow-stepped gables" that Ian Nairn and Nikolaus Pevsner seem to find eerie (246). Yet the intricately patterned bricklaying, the neat tile caps for the crow-stepping, and the bright curving bargeboarding of the adjacent gable, all make a striking impression.
