10/9 Lewdon Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now house. Early C16 origins, improved and extended in C16 and C17.
Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone and brick stacks; asbestos tile roof over
thatch. Much altered 3-room-and-through-passage with inner room to north west and
late C16-early C17 block behind hall. 2-storeys facing north east. Irregular 4-
window front comprising C20 wooden casements of various sizes with late C18 6-panel
door at left end to passage. Hall section breaks forward slightly from main block.
Very small service end result of truncation of this end. Roof is largely
inaccessible but smoke-blackening over passage and service end suggests an early
C16 low partition house with an open hearth fire. Granite hall fireplace with
chamfered oak lintel with pyramid stops and remains of oak plank-and-muntin screen
including a flat-arched door alongside to passage. Passage-service end chamber
jettied into hall with first floor low plank-and-muntin screen below plastered
framing. At upper end of hall unusual mid C17 oak plank-and-muntin screen with
moulding along head and chamfered posts with bar-runout stops. Framing above and
closed tie-beam truss. Inner room with chamfered beam with runout stops. Hall
wing with late C16/early C17 stopped beams but gable fireplace built of brick and
rubble in C19. Inner room extended and much altered in C19. Granite mounting
block set against C19 extension to hall wing (south west end).
