Barham Hall, Bartlow Road, Linton

History of Barham Hall

Listed Building:

Farmhouse. Medieval, early C16 and possibly C17 with c.1800 alterations. Flint rubble, timber-framed and plastered and early C19 red brick. Plain tiled roofs. End stack to left hand and tall square planned ridge stack to right of centre; two rear stacks. Two storeys. Main east-west range with three unit plan and gabled mid C17 rear extensions including surviving medieval wall up to first floor height; refaced in south and west elevations c.1800. C16 jettied north-south range to rear from east end reduced to two bays in 1954.

The jettied C16 range may have been the manor court hall where Robert Millicent is said in 1577 to have held four courts annually. It remained the property of the Millicent family until 1748. In c.1807 it was bequeathed to Pembroke College Cambridge. In 1954 the building was renovated, when some original windows were found and the C18 brewhouse demolished.
