3/81 Brightleymill Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse and former miller's house, now private dwelling. Probably late C17, with
C18 and late C19 extensions. Whitewashed rendered stone and cob. Unrendered stone
rubble with brick dressings to late C19 extension. Thatch roof with gable ends.
Stone rubble stacks with brick stacks at front gable and across rear angle and
lateral brick and stone rubble stack.
Plan: overall L-shaped plan. Later alterations have obscured original late C17
plan, but may have consisted of one room, now forming the projecting front wing,
dormerly with direct entry (now blocked) and staircase at the rear (now removed).
Solid stone rubble and cob partition between this and the rear room which is heated
by a fireplace across its rear right-hand angle. This may be a C18 addition. In
the late C19, a 2-room kitchen and dairy extension was added at right angles onto
the left side of the original range, the kitchen with direct entry and heated by
rear stack. At the same time the doorway into the original range was moved to the
left, close to the angle of the extension, giving access into a small entrance
stairhall taken out of the rear room of the original range.
2 storeys. Late C19/C20 fenestration all 2-light casements. Original range has a
2-light casement, 6 panes per light on each floor to large leanto slate roof to
porch in the angle of the 2 ranges with 2 C20 doors. C19 extension has two 2-light
casements on each floor, variously paned, with brick quoins, those to ground floor
with cambered brick lintels.
Interior: room to front wing has late C17 chamfered ceiling beam with hollow step
stops and chamfered fireplace lintel, with hollow step stop at left end. Bread oven
with cast iron door. Creamery niche in rear wall. Otherwise late C19 joinery
mainly intact. Roof timbers over original range entirely replaced after late C20
