7/182 Old Farmhouse

-- II

Farmhouse, late C15 or c.1500. One storey and attics. A 3-cell open-hall
house. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof with prominent thatched
gabled dormers, perhaps of C17 or C18; bargeboards with C19 turned finials.
An axial chimney, the shaft rebuilt in C20 red brick; a C19 end chimney to
right also with rebuilt shaft. C18 and C19 small-pane casements. C19 boarded
entrance door; C20 thatched gabled open porch on posts. A quite complete
example of an open-hall house; the 2-bay hall has a central open truss with
arch braced cambered tiebeam (one brace missing). Rather widely-spaced but
heavy studding. Service rooms have massive unchamfered floor joists. One of
a pair of 4-centred arched service doorways remains (the rooms are united).
Coupled-rafter roof; both ends were originally half-hipped. An axial chimney
was inserted backing against the cross-entry (with altered lintelled
fireplace) and an upper floor of chamfered joists was inserted in the hall in
early C17.
