Little Colstrope

Little Colstrope
Hambleden
RG9 6SL

Little Colstrope Farm has an C18th double-pile, brick-built farmhouse, a former farmyard with barns and stables on the west side, but ceased to be a working farm by c. 1900. All farm buildings have since been converted to residential use. Barn I has an abundance of ‘wavy’ scantling timbers, evidence of a shortage of good scantling timbers. The trusses next to the former threshing floor have Inner Curved Principals, a typical C18th/19th device to provide headroom for the storing of sheaves. The other trusses have queen strut roofs with clasped purlins. The histories of ownership of Colstrope Farm and Little Colstrope are linked through the Deane family.
