6/90 Langford Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 with circa early C18 addition and probably contemporary
attached barn converted in late C20. Walls are rubble up to 1st floor height and cob
above, rendered. Hipped thatched roof to house half-hipped slate roof to converted
barn. 2 axial rubble stacks one to wing one to main part of house.
Plan at present is L-shaped with 1-room wing at front of right end of house and
converted barn or shippon attached at left end. The original part of the house is
the central block which has 2 rooms of which the right-hand one is larger and heated
by an axial stack, with a smaller unheated service room to its left The barn/shippon
extending from the left end of the house may be original but might otherwise have
been added at the same time that a 1-room wing heated by an axial stack was added to
the front of the right-hand wing, probably as a parlour in the C18. At present
there is an end entry into the right-hand room; it would be unusual, however, if
this formed the original entrance to the house and probably it had to be moved there
when the C18 wing blocked the original entrance to the house.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with wing projecting from right-hand side
and converted shippon extending at left end. Circa early C20 casements with glazing
bars - 2 light on the 1st floor, 3-light on the ground floor. The shippon has late
C20 2-light casements. On the right end wall of the house is a straight joint
between the original part and the wing. Lean-to porch against this wall has a C17
granite segmental-headed doorway with hollow chamfer and deeply inscribed scroll
stops. This has been re-used either from the original front door to the house or
from another building. C20 plank door behind. At the rear of the house is a late
C20 lean-to porch to the right and irregularly spaced C20 casements to its left.
Interior: The principal room has a fireplace with chamfered wooden lintel which has
run-out stops. Its granite jambs are both chamfered on the outside and have
presumably been turned around. Any other surviving original features are concealed.
The roof trusses, however, are C18 with straight principals which have lapped and
