9/218 Heath Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa late C16 partly rebuilt in C19 or C20. Ashlar front wall with
chamfered plinth, the left-hand end of it is rendered. Rendered, probably rubble,
walls at rear. Gable ended slate roof. Slightly projecting rendered stack at right
gable end, ashlar axial stack with dripmoulds and tapering cap with brick shaft.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with contemporary or slightly
later rear wing. Lower end to the left has been completely rebuilt as a shippon,
probably in C19 or earlier C20. The hall stack backs onto the passage and there is
a newel stair to the rear of the higher end of the hall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front, left-nand end of which is
slighly recessed. On the ground floor are 2 original 4-light rebated stone mullion
windows from which the outer 2 mullions have been removed leaving the moulded king-
mullion. Square hoodmoulds above. Otherwise C20 1, 2, and 3-light small-paned
C19 plank door to passage to left marks the start of the lower roof-line to the
rebuilt left-hand end. Rear wing behind right-hand end.
Interior: hall has chamfered, unstopped axial ceiling beam. Stone newel stairs at
the rear of the room. Adjoining it is a moulded peaked head doorframe to the rear
wing. The rear wing has a chamfered cross beam with long pyramid stops. Roof
trusses inaccessible at time of survey but may be of interest. Other features such
as fireplaces are also likely to be concealed.
Despite its modest size this interesting house was evidently built to high
