SS 70 SW
4/76 Sutton Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16-early C17, possibly earlier core, much modernised in C19.
Plastered cob on rubble footings; stone rubble or cob stacks topped with C19 and C20
brick; C20 concrete tile roof (formerly thatch).
Long 5-room range facing south. The centre and left (west) end derive from the
original 3-room-and-through-passage plan house with the inner room at the left end.
the 2 right rooms are extensions in 1 or 2 stages. The first extension is late C16-
early C17. End stack to the inner room, axial stack backing onto former passage to
hall, service end room has axial (former end) stack and another axial stack between
the 2 right rooms. C19 stairs now occupy rear of passage and secondary outshots on
rear. Main block is 2 storeys.
Regular but not symmetrical 4-window front of C19 and C20 casements without glazing
bars but those on ground floor containing diamond-shaped leaded glass. The left end
(inner room) is blind. Front passage door left of centre now contains C19 panelled
door with panelled reveals behind C20 gabled porch. Secondary C19 door at right
end. Roof gable-ended.
Interior Only limited access available at time of survey. Most of ground floor
appears to result of C19 and C20 modernisations and the fireplaces are blocked by
later grates and most of the beams are boxed in. Nevertheless the survival of the
original plan suggests that many C16 or C17 features are probably hidden by later
plaster. The passage has a C17 soffit-chamfered and scroll-stopped crossbeam and
the inner extension room has a late C16-early C17 soffit-chamfered at late step
stopped axial beam. According to the owner the original roof trusses survive and
the house has been visited by Charles Hulland who suggested a C15 date of erection.
It is not known however whether the roof timbers are smoke-blackened.
