2/80 Radfords
Farmhouse. C17, considerably remodelled in C19, with extension at front. Rendered
rubble walls at front and side, exposed at rear and to wing, although not to stair
projection. Asbestos slate and slate roof with gable ends. Rendered rubble
projecting stack to lower right gable end. Brick shaft to front lateral stack and
brick gable end stack to left higher end.
Originally 3-room and through passage plan with lateral front fireplace to hall and
stair projection to rear of it. Possibly original or later C17 wing at rear of
higher end. In C19 house was extensively remodelled inside; door and passage
inserted at higher end of hall leading to stairs at rear. 1-room shop front added
to lower end and front door of passage probably blocked at this stage.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front, right-hand side of which projects. Windows
to left end of left-hand section are mid C19 12-pane sashes without horns.
Contemporary 6-panel door to their right under porch hood. Dentilled cornice.
Right-hand projecting section has early C20 casement on first floor to left and a
C20 metal frame casements to left and right on ground floor, both appear to be in
blocked doorways. On right-hand gable end to left of stack at first floor level is
single light C20 casement which has a projecting slate dripcourse above it. At the
rear a wing projects from the right with stone steps leading to a first floor door.
In the angle of the wing is a rectangular stair projection. Attached at the end of
the wing is a recently converted outbuilding.
Interior: in the central room, formerly the hall is an unusual C17 fireplace with
corbelled wooden lintel which is ovolo-moulded with runout stops. This is supported
on wooden corbels the right-hand of which also has an ovolo-moulded edge, the left-
hand one has been eroded. The lower room has a chamfered cross-beam with run-out
stops. The ground floor room of the wing has a chamfered cross-beam with bar and
step-stops and a lateral fireplace with a chamfered lintel which has worn straight
cut stops. The former inner room has C19 panelled shutters. Several C19 6-panel
doors survive on the ground floor.
The roof timbers appear to have been replaced in the C19 by straight principals,
fairly insubstantial. The room added to the front of the lower room has a slate
floor with a channel cut into it reputedly from when it was a butcher's shop and the
meat was hung up above.
The plain exterior of this house conceals several interior features of interest
which reveal its early origins. The corbelled fireplace is a particularly unusual
and interesting form for this area and suggests this was once a good quality C17
