9/140 West Chapple Farmhouse and cider
house adjoining to south-east
Farmhouse. Early C17 with C19 addition. Mainly rendered cob and rubble walls.
Gable-ended slate roof, corrugated iron to cider house. Brick axial stack and
rendered brick stack at right gable-end.
Plan: the house is in 2 distinct parts - the 2 rooms to the right being early C17
and the 2 rooms to the left C19, with the joint just to the right of an axial stack
which serves both of the central rooms. The fact that there is an early truss just
to the right of this stack and the roof appears to have once extended further to its
left suggests that this C19 range is a rebuild of earlier fabric. It now comprises
the kitchen with a small dairy and salting room to its left. The earlier room to
their right was probably the hall of the C17 house and the room beyond it was a
parlour. A remodelling took place at this end in the late C17. A C17 cider house
stands at right-angles to the left end of the C19 range projecting to the rear,
divided into 2 rooms internally.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front of which the right-hand half is
Slightly lower with one 3-light early C20 casement to the left on 1st floor and a
C19 4-panel door below. The windows to the left-hand half are late C19 or early C20
1 and 2-light small-paned casements with a C20 open-fronted porch to left of centre
which has a C19 plank door behind. Lower outbuilding at left-hand end. Rear
elevation projects slightly to the right-hand side. Mainly C19 and C20 casements
but towards the left-hand end on the 1st floor is a late C17 2-light mullioned and
transomed wooden window. Small C20 porch towards right-hand end with plank door
behind. Cider house projects from right end of house with 2 C17 chamfered wooden
mullion windows at the higher end of its inner face. 4-light on 1st floor and 2-
light below. Plank door to their right.
Interior: of house has Cl7 framed ceiling of moulded beams forming 6-panels in the
former hall. The fireplace has been rebuilt. The right-hand room has a late C17
bolection moulded wooden fireplace surround. The surviving rear blade of original
roof truss (probably principal with curved foot), has threaded purlins and mortices
for a collar, it does not appear to be smokeblackened. The left-hand end of the
house has a C19 fireplace and ceiling beam and the dairy retains its slate shelves
and huge granite salting trough.
The interior of the Cider house preserves the wooden cider press in its right-hand
room which is of 2 storey height. The left-hand room has a chamfered ceiling beam
forked at the front. Both original roof truss survives over this end consisting of
straight principals with trenched purlins and lapped collar.
