TM 17 NW
1/16 Park Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Mid C16. Modernised 1978-9. A 2-cell main range with
contemporary service range to rear forming T-shape plan. Timber framed and
plastered. Main range is pantiled, the rear range thatched. 2 storeys with
attics to main range. Mid C20 casement windows. 2 original mullioned windows
are exposed at first floor level, with 2 others in the rear wall. Lobby
entrance: mid C20 plank door with cover battens and a small oblong fanlight.
Stack has 2 C19 octagonal shafts with corbelled star caps. Left gable end has
fully exposed studs and a jettied first floor carried on plain brackets
supported by 4 buttress shafts (2 are fragmentary). The bressummer, now much
weathered, was probably moulded. Blocked secondary ground floor window with
cavetto mullions. The hall and parlour have good moulded beam and joist
ceilings. The parlour ceiling has a fully-moulded axial floorbeam with run-
out stops and joists with one hollow and one roll moulding; applied moulded
cornice. The hall ceiling has a double hollow moulding to all components,
carried down the wallposts. Queen-post roof, the portion over the parlour
cell altered at a later date, probably when an attic was made. Service range
in 4 bays, one of which contains a stack. Plain joists on ground floor. The
queen-post roof over this range is unusual in having an extra pair of queen-
posts outside the main ones, with short side ties extending from the main
queen-posts to rest on the tops of the outer ones. The roof was originally
hipped. Both ranges have good quality studding with reversed braces.
