5/37 Wickmayes Farm

- II

House formerly farmhouse. Early - mid C17 extended and altered in later C19.
Rendered cob and stone rubble walls. Gable-ended slate roof. Brick axial stack and
one at right gable on projecting rendered rubble base.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan but lower end has apparently been
rebuilt as an outbuilding. Hall stack backs onto passage. In later C19 either hall
or inner room was reduced in size to make room for a new stairhall between the two.
A 2-storey extension was added at the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of circa late C19 3-lignt small-
paned casements. Lean-to open fronted C19 porch to left with C19 plank door behind
in probably contemporary Tudor-arched doorframe. Circa early C20 porch to right of
centre with part-glazed door.
Left-hand end of building is a barn and considerably lower.
Interior: passage rear doorway has C17 chamfered wooden doorframe with mason's
mitres. Hall has large open fireplace with chamfered and straight-cut stopped
wooden lintel and 2 ovens. Inner room fireplace also has chamfered wooden lintel
with ogee stops. On the 1st floor some wide oak floorboards survive which may be
C17. Late C19 joinery at higher end of house including stairs and 4-panel doors.
Roof structure replaced in C19.
