23.1.52 (formerly listec under North
Farmhouse, outbuildings and


Possible house formerly with first floor hall. C16. Roughly _
coursed limestone rubble incorporating some squared and dressed
blocks (probably reused), stone slate roof. Rectangular plan. C20
part-glazed lean-to porch on south side, not of special interest.
Two storeys. South wall; 2-light hollow-chamfered stone-mullioned
window with 4 centred arched heads to each light and carved
spandrels to first floor, straight joint indicating position of
former first floor door visible towards west end. C20 plank door
with fillets within Tudor-arched doorway at centre to ground floor.
C20 two-light artificial stone hollow-moulded mullioned window,
copying that in south wall, within blocking of former west doorway.
Small rectangular blocked window left of doorway. C16 single light
with stone surround, carved spandrels and almost pointed head to
first floor, small light without proper surround towards apex of
gable. Two C16 two-light windows, similar to those in south wall,
at east gable end. First floor now entered at first floor level
from higher ground level at rear, via C20 oak panelled door within
C19 or C20 rectangular surround with wooden lintel, blocked 2-light
stone-mullioned window (as in south wall) left of door. Flat gable
end coping and cross saddles.
Interior; 3 bays, possibly original deep-chamfered tie beam with
stepped stops supporting first floor. Stone fireplace towards east
end of north wall (now blocked up) with Tudor-arched stone surround
with carved spandrels, small recess for cupboard in east wall right
of fireplace. Similar fireplace halfway along same wall at first
floor level. Blocked rectangular doorway visible in south wall.
Possibly original roof trusses with tie beams with struts set apart
at bottom. Tie beam towards west end with slot for partition.
Flat chamfers and double moulded shoulders to struts. Joists
between tie beams suggest roof space formerly had floor. Traces of
former, presumably stone steps up to first floor door in south wall
reputed to have been found during restoration. Former internal
stairs thought to have been at north-west corner. Building was
functioning as the dairy at time of former survey c1954. If the
interpretation of this building as formerly having a first floor
hall is correct, it then represents a very rare example of the
continued use of an early type of house plan at a late date. (Tim
Darvill: Notes on North Farm, Shipton Oliffe, 1985).
