Listing Text

TM 38 NE
2/29 Church Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Mid C16. 2-storey main range, early C17 cross wing with 2 storeys
and attics: T-shaped form. Timber-framed and rendered; pantiled roofs; part
of the cross-wing has colour-washed brick facing. 2 internal chimney-stacks
with plain red brick shafts, one a later insertion. Various casement windows,
mainly late C20 replacements; late C20 glazed entrance porch. The 3-bay main
range is divided into a one-bay and a 2-bay room, and may represent the whole
of the original house: ceilings with deep main beams and plain joists;
reversed, slightly cranked, braces at the corners of the frame; a blocked 4-
light diamond mullioned window with mullions in situ on the upper floor. Roof
with clasped purlins, windbraces, and intermediate collars between trusses.
The cross-wing in 5 bays, including a chimney-bay, has ovolo-moulding to main
beams, and scroll-stops with an additional groove to beams and joists. The 2
bays to the west of the stack have an unusual original division into a 1½ bay
room with a small ½-bay room adjoining. This division is repeated on the
upper floor. There is now a lobby-entrance against the stack, but there may
have been a cross-entry in the ½-bay of the larger room. One of the posts
supporting the main beam has a roll-moulding to the head and a small carved
cresting. The room to the east of the stack has a very fine ledged and
battened door with moulding to the planks. Original upper ceilings to this
range. Roof with 2 rows of unstepped butt purlins and cambered collars: the
bays are irregular in length, and there appears to have been a dormer formerly
in the north slope of the roof.
