(O.S. 6 in. xxvii. N.E.)

Secular

(1). Homestead Moat, near a stream N.W. of Akeman Street Station.

(2). Collett Farm, W. of (1), about 3 miles W.S.W. of Quainton Church, is a house of two storeys and an attic, built in the middle of the 17th century, and subsequently considerably restored. The walls are of stone, except the N. gable, which is timber-framed, with brick filling. The roofs are tiled. Two chimney stacks are of 17th-century brick, but one of them apparently has been re-built.

Interior:—On the ground floor there are some old ceiling-beams, original doors of battens, and one wide fireplace, partly blocked; one room has original bolection-moulded panelling, with a carved and moulded cornice, all now painted. On the first floor some of the ceilings have chamfered beams, and the floors have old oak boards; some of the doors are of old battens, with strap-hinges, and two cupboard doors are of 17th-century panelling, one door having original scroll-hinges; one room has 17th-century panelling, probably not in situ; on the top rails and panels of the frieze is an inscription in large letters, but parts of it are missing.

Condition—Poor; the walls are bolted together, and the roof is not watertight.
