8/141 Higher Corscombe Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa mid to late C17 with C20 addition and alterations. Plastered cob
walls apart from stone rubble left-hand end wall (wnich re-uses some pieces of
dressed granite). Thatch roof gabled to right end tripped to left.
Plan: the original room arrangement is not entirely clear but consists at present
of 2 rooms heated by gable end fireplaces with a possibly integral barn at the left
end. A C20 addition has been built at the rear.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front of circa early C20 2 and 3-light
casements with a central C20 gabled porch which has glazed doors. Barn at left-hand
end has central doorway with a slit opening to its left, window to its right and
loading hatch above. C19 outbuilding attached at right-hand end.
Interior: the right-hand room has a fireplace with high chamfered wooden lintel and
granite jamb to the left, oven in right-hand side built in under tile lintel. The
other fireplace probably has a replacement lintel. Lack of visible roof timbers on
first floor suggest that they are C18 or later.
