1/43 Cuphill Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 with probably earlier origins, left end remodelled and heightened in
late C19. Rendered stone rubble and cob, with some brick at left end. Thatch roof
with gable end to right, and slate roof to higher left end. Axial brick shaft to
hall stack, stone rubble stack at right end and capped lateral stack to rear left
Plan: 3-room and cross-passage plan, with hall stack backing onto wide passage
containing staircase. The inner room end has been largely rebuilt and a third
storey added in the late C19, and was possibly in separate occupation at this time
as it had separate direct front access (now blocked) and until late C20 contained a
separate staircase. Dairy outshut apparently largely rebuilt in C19 to rear of
hall. The hall ceiling beam would suggest a C17 date for the farmhouse, but some
probably smoke-blackened re-used roof timbers suggest it may have earlier origins.
The lower end may also have been largely remodelled in the C18, when the main range
Exterior: 2 storeys, inner room end unusually 3 storeys. 5-window range. All C20
2-light casements, 3 panes per light. Thatched leanto roof to porch. Blocked

beam to hall, timber lintel replaced to hall fireplace which has dressed stone jambs
and bread oven. C17 4-centred arched doorway to rear of hall with chamfered
surround and, interestingly, a small incised cross above the centre of the arch.
Old plank door with cover strips. Lower end has single plain chamfered cross
ceiling beam and rounded back to fireplace which has been partially rebuilt in C20.
Roof structure entirely C18 or possibly early C19, with pegged lapped collars to
trusses with straight principals and waney purlins and rafters. Some of the battens
and one re-used rafter are smoke-blackened.
