- Palmer's Farmhouse with
- attached barn to rear
Farmhouse with barn attached to rear of back wing. Late C15 or early C16 with later
alterations and extensions. Cob, stone plinth, plastered and roughcast, the house
under gabled-end shingle roof, the barn under hipped corrugated-iron roof. Formerly
a 3-room, through-passage plan with a rear parlour wing; the survival of 2 jointed
crucks in the rear barn, one of them possibly smoke-blackened, suggests that the
parlour wing accommodation formerly extended further back; a truncated jointed cruck
in the lower end extension (now a garage and storage area) suggests that this
building might once have been a barn or shippon. Axial stack with brick shaft backs
onto passage and heats hall; right-hand end stack all ashlar, heats parlour. 2
Front: 4 window range; 2- and 3-light timber and metal casement windows to 1st floor,
two 3-light casement windows to ground floor, all barred; wide planked door to
passage, recessed. Lower end extension under lower roof ridge, garage and pedestrian
door, with 2-light window over. Left-hand end with 3-light window to 1st floor, 8-
light window below; C20 additions at rear mask a now internal 3-light timber casement
window with chamfered surround and mullions to lower-end. Stair turret to rear of
hall. Right-hand elevation of wing (i.e. to roadside) with 4-light window to 1st
floor; barn with 2 double wagon doors, opposed.
Interior: chamfered arched door surrounds to rear passage doorway, and to entrance
from passage into hall; winder stairs to rear of hall, also to parlour wing built
into thickness of end stack wall. Hall and parlour with 3 axial beams, chamfered,
with hollow step stops; fireplaces probably conceal older work; plank and muntin
screen between hall and parlour, simply chamfered to hall, ovolo-moulded to parlour,
the bressumer chamfered with run-out stops above each panel. Deep chamfered axial
beam to wing.
Roof: 2 jointed crucks, one cut off above collar; apex of complete truss side pegged
and morticed, trenched purlins, cranked collars; smoke blackened. 2 jointed crucks
to wing (roof space of wing not inspected); 2 jointed crucks, one with a single blade
only surviving, visible in rear barn.
