- II

Former tenement farmhouse, now private dwelling with barn and shippon attached.
Farmhouse and barn C17, both with C19 and C20 alterations. Shippon added in C19.
Unrendered stone rubble with cob to rear. Farmhouse and barn under continuous
thatched roof with gable ends. Shippon with corrugated iron roof with gable ends.
Stone rubble stack to left gable end of farmhouse.
Plan: Farmhouse at left end of 2 rooms, with direct entry into the larger left-hand
heated room, smaller room to right with staircase running up rear wall and entering
the larger room at its rear right-hand corner. Barn attached at right end with
opposing rear doorways to central threshing floor. Lofted shippon attached at right
end of barn completes the long range.
Farmhouse 2 storeys. 2-window range. Hipped dormers with C20 2-light casements, 3
panes per light. Thatched roof to late C19 timber porch with plank inner door.
Stable door to barn with cambered stone lintel and 2-light window to right with
wooden shutters. Probably late C17 rear doorway with chamfered durns. Shippon has
plank door to left of window opening with timber lintel.
Interior: Farmhouse largely altered in C19 and C20. Cambered brick arch to
fireplace which has bread oven. C19 winder staircase. Heavy straight roof trusses
and purlins, but no access to roofspace. No rear outshut.
Collins Farmhouse is the best surviving example of the majority of Chittlehamholt
farmhouses which are situated in the former 'holt' or wood which was carved up and
enclosed as small farms in the C17.
