- II
Farmhouse. Late C16 or early C17, possibly with earlier origins, with C19 and C20
additions. Rendered cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof gabled to left and half-
hipped to right. 2 rendered axial stacks, probably rubble bases with brick shafts.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the left. Hall stack backs
onto the passage; it has a projecting window bay at the front and newel stairs in a
projection at the rear. Fireplace at end of lower room is probably a later
insertion. Probably C19 rear outshuts and C20 addition.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front, all of which are later C20
small-paned 1 and 2-light casements apart from 1st floor right-hand window which is
a C17 3-light chamfered wooden mullion window. Projecting hall bay to right of
centre. To left of centre is C20 thatch doorhood supported on wooden posts witn C20
plank door behind. 2 rear outshuts under catslide extension of thatch roof - the
end one incorporates the stair projection. C20 1 storey addition behind left-hand
end.
Interior: hall has open fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel. Ceiling beams are
chamfered with pyramid stops. Wooden newel stairs at rear. The inner room has
decorative plasterwork to the ceiling in the form of a single rib heart motif in
each corner which may be C17. Roof not accessible but its external appearance
suggests a C20 reroofing although it is possible that old timbers may still survive
underneath.
