8/92 Wressing Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, largely remodelled and partially rebuild in mid C19. The right-
hand end wall and most of the rear wall is of brick; the rest of cob, on stone
footings, and roughcast. Gabled end slate roof.
3-room cross-passage plan house, the service end to the left of the passage with
rear wing. Internal end stacks, and an external lateral rear stack heating hall:
brick shafts throughout. 2 storeys.
Front: 4 window range; first floor: 3-light casement window in small early
embrasure to service end chamber, with large 2 and 3 light late C19 casement windows
elsewhere. Ground floor: 3-light casement window to service end and hall, and
French window to inner room; porch with moulded entablature on 2 slender Tuscan
timber columns, with pilasters. Rear with one 2-light casement window under
depressed window arch.
Interior (not inspected); the roof, apparently, was completely replaced in the C19
with sawn principals of A-profile. 2 C17 ceiling beams (presumably removed from the
house) were re-used in a small outbuilding of rubble masonry with a gabled-end slate
roof, dated 1875; they are both set axially, chamfered, and one has good scroll
stops with a notch. The outbuilding, which stands forward of the house is connected
to it with a low cob wall with slate coping.
The house has an attractive front, and preserves its early plan.
