3/49 East Rowley Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse. Mid to late C17, extended and altered in the C19. Rubble, roughcast and
colourwashed on the front, asbestos-slated roof in 2 sections, 3 axial stacks with
tall brick shafts.
Plan: the existing plan is 3 rooms with a wing behind the left end of the centre
room. The left end room, with its entrance passage, is a C19 addition; the
remaining part is the C17 house. It has a most interesting transitional plan with a
large kitchen at the right and heated by a large gable end fireplace, an entrance
lobby at the centre with a staircase against the back wall; at the left end is the
hall/parlour heated by a gable end fireplace; behind the hall is an unheated dairy
wing. The hall is not the full depth of the main range, and the large integral
dairy may have protruded into the main range; alternatively the axial passage behind
the hall may be a C19 alteration to provide access to the C19 parlour extension at
the left end, and its entrance passage. Probably at the same time in tne C19 the
original entrance lobby was reduced to make the hall larger, and later the front
door was blocked. The outshut behind the kitchen in the angle of the dairy wing is
Interior: kitchen with gable end fireplace with unchamfered cambered wooden lintol,
bread oven with clay lining. Dairy with rough-chamfered crossbeam. Hall with
chamfered crossbeam without stops, fireplace with cambered chamfered lintol.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 6 window front, 2 and 3-light casements with
horizontal glazing bars, most replaced C20. Blocked door opening to the centre with
a cambered head, casement inserted, steps still remain; further door opening to left
with 6-panelled door, top 2 panels glazed, door opening to extreme right, half-
glazed door, C20 lean-to porch.
Roof: replaced C19, one C17 tie-beam truss remains.
