Pheasant’s Hill Farm

Pheasant’s Hill Farm

Pheasant’s Hill Farm is part of a small hamlet, located c. 1 mile north of Hambleden village. The steading consists of a brick-built and originally two-bay farmhouse with cellar and external well. It has been extended and is now double-pile. There are two timber-framed and weatherboarded barns, one converted for cow accommodation, a further cow house, a stable, cart shed, and granary. Barn I has queen strut trusses and clasped purlins; barn II has inner principals allowing for head height for storing the harvest (a roof truss type known locally from the mid C18th ) but the machine-cut softwood timbers here indicate a C19th date.
