9/113 West Peek Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa late C16. Plastered stone rubble. Slate roof with gabled ends.
Right hand lower end (east) has lower roof level. The higher end over hall and
inner room has some old crested ridge tiles. 3-room and cross-passage plan with
solid wall between hall and inner room. Large axial chimney-stack backing onto
cross-passage. 2 smaller chimney-stacks at gable ends, the stack at lower end is
much later insertion. 2 storeys. Long 6-window range. C19 and C20 casements. At
lower end 2 ground floor 3-light hollow-chamfered granite mullion windows with hood-
moulds, left hand window has missing mullions. 2-storey gabled porch to right of
centre with chamfered granite 4-centred and doorway. Similar inner doorway to cross
passage but with depressed 2-centred arch. Gabled stair tower at rear of higher end
with small blocked 4-centred head window with hood mould. Small C20 rear outshut.
There is no sign of rear door to passage. Interior: Fireplaces blocked and ceiling
beams covered. Stone newel stair with large timber newel in rear stair tower.
Roof: 2 trusses over hall, morticed at apex, lap-jointed collars, 2 tiers of
threaded purlins and rafters intact. All roof timbers over hall are whitewashed and
partition wall between hall and upper end is plastered. Roof space over upper end
inaccessible. Over lower end 4 roof trusses with side-pegged morticed apices and
side-pegged morticed collars, 2 tiers of threaded purlins and pegged rafters intact.
This largely unaltered house has an original roof almost completely intact. It
appears to have been always a 2-storey house with a ceiled hall and therefore
proabably built in the last half of the C16. However some of the fabric could be
earlier. A manor at Peek was mentioned in the Domesday Book.
