Old Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C16 or early C17 with later additions and alterations.
Timber framed with painted brick and rendered infill; asbestos sheeting
to gable ends and rear; asbestos slate roof. Original 3-cell baffle-
entry plan extended to right in late C17 but added bay now demolished.
One storey and attic. Framing: small square panels, 5 from cill to wall-
plate; jettied full dormer to right of centre has moulded bressumer and
carved corner brackets. First floor to right of doorway (including dormer)
possibly rebuilt in C17 as framing has slightly larger scantling.
Irregular C19 fenestration; fixed-light window and paired casement to
left of roughly central entrance with small fixed-light window directly
below eaves above casement. Cast-iron casement and small fixed-light window
to right of doorway with cast-iron casement to left of dormer below
bressumer. Entrance has C17 nail-studded plank door with fleur-de-lys
pointed strap hinges under C19 gabled hood. Prominent brown brick axial
ridge stack immediately to left, its width indicated by rubblestone visible
in back wall. Interior: chamfered spine beam and heavy joists to left
ground-floor room; deep-chamfered spine beam to centre room. Right ground-
floor room has oak winder staircase; moulded handrail and turned balusters
on first floor probably early C18. Collar and tie beam roof truss exposed
between first and second bays from right on first floor. Demolished bay
is said to have had oak-panelled parlour on ground floor. Graded II* on
account of exceptionally well-preserved small-panel framing. Eric Mercer,
English Vernacular Houses (H.M.S.O. 1975), p. 196.
