Listing Text

3/129 Dainton Farm (including
- adjoining cottage)
Farmhouse with cottage at one end. Probably C17, remodelled in C19 with wing
added. Rendered rubble walls. Asbestos slate roof gabled at either end hipped to
wing at front. 3 rendered rubble stacks, one projecting from each gable end cut off
at roof apex and rear lateral stack with brick shaft. Brick shaft at side of wing.
Originally 3-room and through-passage plan with lower room to left. Hall heated by
rear lateral stack and lower and inner room heated by gable end stacks. Newel
stairs at rear of inner room. Remodelled internally in circa early C19 and wing
added at front of left-hand, lower room. Probably C19 outshuts along the rear wall.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front with wing to left. On first floor the 2
left-hand windows are C19 2-light casements with glazing bars, the right-hand one is
in a wood mullion window frame. To the right is C20 2-light metal frame casement in
gabled ½ dormer. On ground floor is 3-light C19 casement with glazing bars to the
left and a similar single light window to its right beyond which is C20 glazed door.
To the right of that is C20 2-light metal frame casement. To the far left is C20
plank door, probably to original passage with circa early C19 wing, projecting to
its left which has an early C20 2-light casement on the ground floor of the front
wall and first floor of the inner face of wing. This section of the house forms a
separate cottage.
Interior of farmhouse end inspected. The right-hand, probably former inner, room
has a moulded plaster ceiling of single ribs in a geometric design with fleurons at
the corners. The centre has been damaged. C19 corner cupboard with arched head and
wall cupboard adjoining fireplace. Room above has moulded plaster cornice which
also runs either side of the collar to the roof truss which projects down into the
ceiling. Damaged decorative plasterwork above fireplace has flower motif.
Interesting, original roof trusses survive which consist of substantial straight
principals with cranked collars halved and pegged which have a small chamfer on
their soffit. Principal rafters are morticed at the apex and have 10 purlins from
wall plate to ridge level. It is a 10 bay roof of open trusses, all stained dark so
that it is impossible to tell whether they are smoke-blackened.
