6/129 Great Pitford Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa 1500 with C17 alterations, modernised in late C20. Rendered cob
walls. Thatch roof gabled to left end and hipped to right. Projecting partly
rendered rubble lateral stack at front which has brick shaft, brick shaft at left
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan, with lower end to the right which
has been demolished beyond the passage and replaced by a C20 outbuilding. Initially
the house was open to the roof from end to end with a central hearth to the hall.
It was floored and the front lateral hall stack inserted in the circa early C17. A
straight flight of stairs rises at the rear of the hall and this may also be C17 but
is now contained in a C19 outshut. Modernised internally and re-fenestrated in late
Exterior: asymmetrical 3-window front of late C20 2-light casements without glazing
bars. The stack projects to the right of centre with a rounded oven projection
beyond it and to the right of this is a recess for a late C20 part-glazed door. The
left-hand half of the house projects slightly and contains a bee-bole with an arched
head. The rear elevation has original heavy oak doorframe to the left which is
chamfered with a segmental arched head. Outshut to its right.
Interior: hall has chamfered cross beams with double spade stops. Chamfered cross
beam to inner room. Hall fireplace blocked but probably has a heavy wooden lintel.
Roof is complete and smoke-blackened from end to end including common rafters,
battens and thatch. 2 pairs of crucks with no joint visible, threaded purlins and
diagonal ridge but collars not visible.
