ST 20 NE
8/161 Grovelands Farmhouse
- II
Small farmhouse. Late C17 - early C18. Plastered local stone rubble with sections
of cob; stone rubble stack topped with C19 brick; shingle roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: 3-room plan house facing west-south-west, say west. At the left end is an
unheated room which was formerly used as a dairy. It is larger than the usual
dairy. The centre room is the main living room and it is heated by an axial stack
backing onto the small unheated right end room which was formerly used as a cellar
or buttery. This right end room may be a C19 extension. The house is 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 2-window front with a third ground floor window at the right
end; all are C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars and the first floor windows are
half dormers. The front doorway is roughly central (into the centre room) and it
contains a C19 part-glazed plank door. The front is propped by a couple of raking
buttresses. The roof is gable-ended.
Interior: the left and centre rooms both have roughly-chamfered crossbeams with
straight cut stops. The fireplace in the centre room is stone rubble with an oak-
framed front. Its rear oven was relined in the C19. The passage to left of the
fireplace and connecting the centre and left rooms appears to have been knocked
through an original walk-in curing chamber. The straight flight stair rising to
right of the fireplace is C19 and probably replaced an original winder stair there.
The roof was not inspected although the bases of straight principals were seen on
the first floor; their scantling is large enough to suggest they are from original
A-frame roof trusses.
