4/71 Broad End Farmhouse
- (formerly listed as
29.7.55 Broadend Farmhouse)

-- II*

Farmhouse. In 2 sections: to left a hall range of second half of C14; to
right a mid C16 parlour addition. Timber framed and plastered with pantiled
roofs. 1½-storey hall range, 2-storey parlour addition. Windows mainly mid
C20 small-paned casements; hall range has 2 gabled dormers. 2 mid C20 doors,
one with open porch. At the junction of the 2 ranges, a stack with plain C16
shaft. The C14 range comprises an intact former open hall of raised-aisle
form together with the adjacent service cell. The main bridging beam of the
open truss is slightly cambered, with solid braces to the wall posts (one
brace missing). It carries cross-quadrate queen-posts with thick, almost
solid curved braces to the arcade plates and massive arched braces to the tie
beam. There are side ties to the wall plates, each supported by a pair of
braces which meet to form a 2-centred arch. The upper truss has an octagonal
crown-post with moulded base and capital. Both service doorways survive,
together with the front cross-entry doorway: all have 2-centred arches. There
is evidence for the original hall windows. Service end altered, especially on
ground floor. C16 inserted floor with plain or roughly chamfered joists. The
stack was inserted into the upper end of the hall. The parlour addition is of
high quality, with some heavy close studding. In the parlour, a moulded
bridging beam with leaf-carved stops is carried on storey posts with carved
corbels. The joists are also moulded. The ceiling of the parlour chamber is
particularly fine, with an arched-braced, slighly cambered bridging beam and 3
axial beams each side, 2 of triangular section: all are moulded, as are the
joists and wall plates.
