5/36 Browning's Farmhouse
Detached house, formerly a farmhouse. Mid C17 with later alterations and additions.
Roughcast rubble chest with some cob; hipped and gable end roof, thatched to the
front, with corrugated iron to rear. Plan : a 2-room, central passage plan house,
with a wing to the rear of the right-hand room, and, at a slightly different
alignment to the left, a barn of jointed cruck construction (now converted to a
dwelling). Later wing stands forward of the left-hand room. Site of newel stair at
rear of cross passage. Right-hand room and wing heated by end stacks, both with
brick shafts. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: 2-window range with C19 2-light casement window to first floor,
the eaves line rising to cover them both; ground floor : half glazed door under
thatched porch, with 3-light casement window to the right. Front wing with C20 2-
light casement window to each floor.
Right-hand side elevation: the wing projects slightly from the end of the main
range; one single, and one 2-light casement windows, the latter with 18 leaded
panes and early C19 catch to middle light.
Rear: C20 addition obscures inner face of wing; slight bulge to left of present
rear door marks site of the newel.
Interior: right-hand room with chamfered cross ceiling beams, hollow step stops.
Fireplace with lintel and jambs with continuous chamfer and one remaining scroll
stop. The plan is complicated by later modifications; a newel standing forward of
the left-hand jamb of the fireplace (now in its turn replaced) and an axial screen
(now dismantled but the mortices of the studs visible in headbeam) that forms a rear
passage. Left-hand room with an axial half beam, formerly adjacent to former front
wall, since exposed when front wing added. Rear wing fireplace, the lintel
chamfered with scroll stops; a former smoking chamber survives beside the
Renewed roof trusses. (The adjacent barn was of jointed cruck construction : these
have been removed, but were seen at the resurvey before destruction; side pegged at
