GV II

Farmhouse. Probably late C16/early C17 although all early internal features are
concealed; extended and altered in C19. Rendered stone rubble and cob walls. Gable
ended slate roof, scantle slates to right-hand side, slightly projecting rubble
stack to left gable end, large rendered rubble axial stack and C19 axial brick
stack.
Originally 3 room-and-through-passage plan, lower end to the right. Hall heated by
stack backing onto the passage and with shallow projecting hall bay at the front.
Inner room heated by gable end stack; lower room apparently unheated until gable end
stack was inserted in C19. Probably at this stage the building was extended at the
lower end with an out-building. Later C19 outshuts added at rear of left-hand end.
In the C19 original features were covered up and the hall subdivided with a
staircase inserted at the rear.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front of circa late C19/early C20 casements which
are 3-light except for first floor window left of centre which is 1-light. Shallow
hall projection to left of centre. To right of centre is late C19/early C20 gabled
brick porch with C19 panelled and part glazed door behind. C19 outbuilding
extension at right-hand end and outshut at rear.
Interior: no early features visible but beams and open fireplaces are likely to be
concealed. The feet of the principal rafters are not visible in first 1st floor
rooms so it is unlikely that the roof trusses are early.
