- II
House, former farmhouse, once a bakery. Mid late C16 with C17 improvements,
thoroughly refurbished circa 1970. Plastered stone rubble with cob wall tops; stone
rubble stacks, one disused, the other topped with C20 brick; thatch roof to main
block, interlocking tile roof to rebuilt service end.
Plan and development: originally a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house facing
north-east. Only the hall and inner room survive from the original house. Inner
room kitchen at the right end with a disused projecting end stack. The hall has an
axial stack backing onto the site of the former passage. The passage and service
end room at the left end had long fallen into disuse and was completely rebuilt
circa 1970 and is set back from the main front. The inner room was definitely
floored from the beginning and the hall fireplace is also original. The hall was
probably open to the roof. If so it was floored in the late C16 - early C17. The
date of the inner room fireplace is not clear but it is probably C17. In the C19
the inner room was a baker's shop. House is 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular front fenestration to the main block with 3 ground floor and 2
first floor windows, all C20 casements with glazing bars. The central and right
ground floor windows are blocking C18 or C19 doorways. The present front doorway is
through a C20 porch immediately to left of the main block brought forward from the
rebuilt section flush with the main front. In fact, it is in the position of the
former passage front doorway. Main roof is half-hipped to right and gable-ended to
left. The rebuilt service end contains similar windows, a secondary doorway and is
Interior: oak doorframe from the former passage to the hall has a replacement
cranked head. The hall fireplace has been relined in the C20 but shows its original
soffit-chamfered oak lintel. 6-panel intersecting beam ceiling with deep hollow-
chamfered soffits. At the upper end of the hall is an oak plank-and-muntin screen.
Inner room axial beam has plain soffit chamfers, the same finish as the lintel of
the partly-blocked fireplace. On the first floor there is a small shoulder-headed
oak doorframe from the former passage chamber to the hall chamber. 3-bay roof of
main block is carried on clean side-pegged jointed cruck trusses.
