4/46 The Farmhouse

The building shall be upgraded to grade II*, and the description
shall be amended to read:

Farmhouse. 1683 date, with initials B.M., inscribed on the tie-
beam; later additions and alterations. Originally mud-and-stud
construction on brick plinth, the house was largely cased in red
brick and the gables built up in the early/mid C19. Colour
washed. Thatched roof (originally half-hipped) with small dormer
to second bay. Large central brick chimney stack; smaller stack
added to west return in C19. Low brick extension to east has
pantile roof; brick extension to rear of west bay has flat felt
roof. Lobby entry plan. Main house single storey with attics, 4
bays. Part glazed door with single 12-pane sash to right, 2 to
left and one in east gable . Single small-paned casement in
dormer, west gable and single-bay extension. INTERIOR: Present
heck is of early brick construction, inserted to support cut-off
south end of original chamfered bressumer whose north end was
originally lapped over vertical bay post, behind angled brace.
Early brick inglenook infilled with C20 stone fireplace but part
of rear wall (broken through at north end) visible in present
bathroom, lit by small Yorkshire sash (original fire window?).
Bressumer supports mud firehood partly reworked in brick. Stop-
chamfered beam rests on bressumer (west end supported on post
built into original mud-and-stud cross wall) with oak posts
carrying wide deal floorboards; close-lathed ceiling with earth
infill above. Original parlour has small cast iron fireplace and
retains visible mud-and-stud cross walling with horizontal rail,
mid-post and rear doorway in north wall; chamfered beam has been
shortened with east end resting on brick cross wall inserted when
stair put in. Later mud-and-stud walling to either side at head
of stair. Inscribed tie-beam to west of central chimney; tie-beam
to east of chimney has clay underpinning (forming storage for
drying grain?). East side of chimney added with fireplace to
kitchen below.

Roof destroyed by fire in January 1991 when chimney reduced in
height. Graded as earliest surviving dated mud-and-stud building
which still retains many original, rare features. Recorded by
R.C.H.M.E. in May 1991.
