7/76 Helewood Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Circa early/mid C17. Stone rubble; asbestos slate roof (formerly
thatched), gabled at ends; end stacks, the right end stack projecting with set-offs.
Plan: Interesting for the date: single depth main range, almost symmetrical, compact
plan with a kitchen to the left, parlour to the right on either side of what was
almost certainly a lobby entrance in front of an unheated central dairy. The
partition between lobby and dairy has been removed and a stair inserted in the former
dairy. Single-storey rear lean-to a post C17 addition; probably C20 1 room plan rear
left addition. A probably early C20 photograph in the possession of the owner shows
the building thatched with a thatched single-storey block at the left end which no
longer exists.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3 window front with a circa mid C19 gabled
stone porch in the centre with an ornamental slate roof. 3-light casement windows,
some with square leaded panes, probably early C19.
Interior: Both kitchen and parlour have deeply-chamfered scroll-stopped crossbeams
and original fireplaces. The kitchen fireplace has a massive chamfered stopped
lintel which extends over a curving chamber; chamfered stopped lintel to parlour
fireplace. C17 chamfered doorframe on rear wall of kitchen. Position of original
stair uncertain.
Roofspace Not inspected at time of survey (1986).
