SS 64 NW
2/155 Farmhouse used for farm
storage immediately west
of west tower of Church
of St Peter
Former farmhouse, now used for farm storage. Probably late Cl7, largely remodelled
in C19. Unrendered stone rubble and some cob. Slate roofs, corrugated iron roof
with lower ridge at lower end. Stone rubble stack at right gable end and axial
stack with tapered caps and drips. Unusual plan partially obscured by C19 alter-
ations. Axial stack at lower end of hall with considerably larger heated inner
room to right. The front wall of the hall is built out possibly as an addition
incorporating stair turret to left and hall window projection to right of small
central lobby giving direct access through into the hall. The inner room was
partitioned axially in the C19 towards the rear to form a fear passage leading to
tile small winder staircase in the rear right hand corner contained within the gabli-
end stack projection. The lower end has been extensively rebuilt in the C19 and,
part of the front wall removed. Its upper part is divided axially forming a small
dairy at the rear into which the substantial curving rear wall of the hall stack
projects. The small room in front was formerly entered by a wide front doorway
but this was later infilled and a window inserted. The lower (left) end wall of
this front wall (but not the corresponding wall of the dairy) is also a later
insertion, suggesting that originally only the dairy was enclosed out of the lower
end, which is otherwise featureless and may always have been utilized for farm
storage. 2 storeys. 4 window range. Principally C19 fenestration, 2-light case-
ments, except at right end which has a C19 3-light casement above a Cl7 4-light
ovolo mullion window. C19 3-light casement inserted in blocked lower end doorway.
Interior: single chamfered cross beam with straight cut stops to front room of lower
end. 2 cross ceiling beams and upper end bressumer to hall with diagonal cut stop
chamfers. Straight cut stops to cambered lintel to hall fireplace which has bread
oven in rear wall. 2 chamfered axial ceiling beams to inner room with hollow-step
stops. C19 joinery principally intact including the 2 staircases although the hall
staircase has lost some of its treads. Roof structure wholly replaced in C19 or
early C20 except for a single principal at the lower end with its short curved foot
bedded in the front wall and which is supported at its apex by the axial stone
partition of the dairy. Solid stone walls also rise to the apex of the roof at
each end of the hall.
