5/134 Frankland Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C16 with C17 alterations and addition. Rendered cob walls. Gable
ended slate roof. 3 brick stacks, 2 axial, 1 at left-hand end.
Plan: 3-room and through passage plan, lower end to the left, hall originally open
to the roof with central hearth. Floored in early-mid C17 when the hall stack was
inserted backing onto the passage. The lower end and inner room stacks were
probably added later. At some stage in the C17 a 1-room wing was added at the front
of the inner room with a large fireplace at its gable end. It has independent
external access and no internal access to the house and if these features are
original it is likely to have been built as a bakehouse. C19 outshut added at rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical. 3-window front of early C20 small-paned 2 and
3-light casements. C19 panelled and glazed door at centre with oven projection to
its right. Projecting wing at right-band end with door at centre of inner face.
C19 outbuilding attached at left-hand end.
Interior: hall has fireplace with high chamfered wooden lintel and granite jamb to
the right which is chamfered on both sides and has shaped corbel above it. To the
right of the fireplace is an insubstantial beam chamfered with notched stops. Inner
room has chamfered axial beam. In its front wall is an C13 wall cupboard with
Roof: smoke-blackened medieval roof survives over hall and higher end-hall truss
has morticed cranked collar, threaded purlins and diagonal ridge.
