4/77 Palace Farmhouse


House. Circa late C17 with circa early C18 rebuilding at right end. Whitewashed
rendered stone rubble; slate roof, gabled at ends; gable end stacks, axial stack,
lateral stack on rear wall.
The original plan is not clear. The present main range is single depth, 3 rooms
wide, the left hand end on a slightly different axis to the 2 right hand rooms. The
left hand ground floor room is of late seventeenth-centry date, heated by the left
gable end stack. It would appear that in the early C18 the house was rebuilt at the
right end and re-roofed throughout with a symmetrical front elevation to the new
work. The new work involved a fairly substantial attic storey used as part of the
accommodation and a 2-storey winder stair. Subsequent additions include a front
right wing at right angles to the C17 end of the house and a rear right 1 room plan
addition with a lean-to roof.
2 storeys. 1 + 2 window front, the right end symmetrical with a C20 gabled porch
canopy and 1/2-glazed C19 door with arched lights. 3-light first floor casements, 2
panes per light, 2-light ground floor windows inserted since 1978 (old list
description) replacing C18 casements. The front elevation of the left hand part of
the house has an additional doorway at the left end and a 2-light casement, 2 panes
per light, lighting the stair.
Interior Ground floor room left has a chamfered cross beam with runout stops and
exposed joists; casement window with deeply-chamfered timber mullions. Some C18
joinery survives in the right hand end of the house. The roof structure is unusual
Under a more recent roof there are trusses of large scantling with slightly curved
feet resting in the stone walls. At the left end of the house 2 first floor cross
beams of uncertain date are suspended from C20 subsidiary trusses erected in the
The 1978 list description refers to a "3-light ovolo-moulded timber window with
original doorway adjoining, having bead-moulded frame and boarded door, window and
doorway linked by Beerstone hoodmould, capped by slates". These features not seen at
time of survey (1986).
Group value with remains of listed Bishop's Palace.
