4/105 Unoccupied house approximately
- 40 metres to south east of
Bridgetown Farmhouse
Unoccupied former farmhouse. Early C16 with C17 alterations. Partly rendered
rubble and cob walls. Gable ended corrugated iron roof. Projecting front lateral
stack - probably rubble with brick shaft but at present overgrown with ivy.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan, lower end to the right. Hall at least
originally open to the roof with central hearth, replacement of roof structures to
higher and lower ends make their original form unclear. Hall ceiled in circa early
C17 with front lateral stack added at the same time. Lower room heated by gable
end stack. C19 brick wall inserted between hall and passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical front the windows of which are overgrown. 3
doorways, those at the left and right end have been inserted, the original door to
the passage is at the centre and retains its original roundheaded door frame with
small roll-moulding. Projecting chimney stack to its left with adjoining semi-
circular oven projection to its right.
Interior: lower room has fireplace with cambered chamfered and step-stopped wooden
lintel. Hall has chamfered cross beams with convex stops. Its fireplace has
chamfered wooden lintel resting on curved wooden corbels with vertical grooves cut
into them. Built in settle against higher end wall has curved bench end.
Roundheaded wooden doorframe to inner room lightly chamfered on hall side.
Roof: original smoke-blackened roof truss, purlins and ridge survive over hall.
The truss is of heavy scantling and its front blade has a curved foot. Threaded
purlins and ridge, the morticed collar has been removed. Over the lower end is a
probably C17 truss consisting of straight principals with morticed apex, trenched
purlins and no collar.
