3/13 Stooks
18.11.76 including garden boundary wall
adjoining north-west
- II
Farmhouse. Early-C16 or earlier. Cob, rendered, on stone plinth under a gabled-
end thatch roof. Left-hand end-stack and 2 lateral back-stacks. Originally a 3-
room, through passage house, with later back corridor. The hall was formerly open
to the roof, but the lower end appears never to have been so. 2 storeys. Front:
wide doorway left of centre with scratch moulding to jambs and lintels, and a C20
window above. Three other windows to each floor, the 3 above set high, 2 under
eyebrow eaves. Disposition of window slightly irregular. Upper windows with C19
casements, ground floor C20. Rear elevation with remains of slate roofed newel-
stair turret between back stacks, supporting a slightly projecting feature with a
small window designed to light the upstairs back corridor. Internally: remains of
a low partition between through-passage and right-hand room (or hall). Hall
fireplace with ovolo mouldings to Thorverton stone jambs and wooden lintel, and
remains of a blocked bread oven. Beams, chamfered with step-stops. Between hall
and inner room a stud and panel screen, the studs with shallow chamfers and without
stops. Beam above this with cyma-reversa moulding. Inner chamber with C19
chimney-piece (the stack being a late insert to a previously unheated room), below
a heavily chamfered beam. Roof: smoke blackened above hall. Hall section divided
from lower end by a closed truss with principal pegged into collar, the lower end
side clean. Roof over lower end replaced, similarly new roof over inner room.
Hall roof unusual in that it lacks principals, the division between hall and inner
room being marked by a common rafter with central strut. The right-hand end has a
hip cruck. Included for group value is the garden boundary wall adjoining left, circa
C19 plastered cob with tile capping for group value.
