6/31 Little Churchill Farmhouse
- (formerly listed as Churchill
Farmhouse. C17 or earlier. Cob, stone plinth, rendered, with gabled-end thatched
roof. Originally a 3-room, through-passage house plan with central rear wing under
hipped thatched roof, outshuts under catslide roofs either side of wing, and a
shallow slate-roofed outskirt at foot of wing. Shallow C20 front 2-storey porch. 2
brick end stacks (that to the left with bake-oven bulge), and another brick stack at
rear of hall, at junction of house with wing. 2 storeys.
Front: formerly a 3-window range before erection of porch. lst-floor windows,
sashes, without horns, 3-pane sash above, 6-pane below; ground-floor sash window to
either side of porch, each sash with 6 panes; the rest C20 metal casements.
Outshut with 2-light C20 casement window at end, and, to one side, a small
triangular-headed window lighting a tiny chamber at the head of the present flight
of stairs, possibly marking the site of a former newel.
Interior: through passage; front door with 4 fielded panels above, 2 plain panels
below; rear opposing doors now blocked beneath C19 staircase. Left-hand room is
now the kitchen, presumably the result of a C17 reorganisation. One large chamfered
beam with hollow step stops. To the right of former end fireplace, an C18 staircase
with original treads and risers, lit by a small one-light window with oak frame and
metal glazing bar. Central chamber (over hall) : floor level 1 metre higher than
rooms to either side.
Roof: 6 bays, principals, morticed and side-pegged at apex and into collars. All
timbers are clean. A C17, 3-light timber window, probably re-used from the house,
survives in adjacent barn, mullions and jambs with ovolo mouldings; iron bar to each
light and oak shutters perhaps contemporary.
