- II

Farmhouse. Probably early C17, the range to right of stack rebuilt or possibly
added in the late C18, with late C19/early C20 alterations. Rendered stone and cob,
unrendered to rear. Asbestos slate roof with gable ends, formerly hipped at right
end. Small brick stack at left end, axial brick stack and lateral brick stack to
rear upper end.
The original C17 plan to the left-hand range has been obscured by later alterations
but appears to have consisted of a service room at the left end and hall to right
heated by the present axial stack. With the late C18 remodelling, the house was
converted into 2 occupations, the hall being reduced in size at its lower left end
by the introduction of an entrance passage containing a staircase. To the right of
the hall stack, 2 principal rooms were added or rebuilt, reputedly following a fire.
The right-hand end room at one time occupied as a separate cottage, was divided
probably early the century to form small service rooms with direct entry to the
right-hand room. A staircase was introduced at the same time to the left of this
entrance. This replaced a staircase in the left-hand room which formerly ran up
beside the axial stack of the C17 hall with a former entrance hall to the third
central entrance doorway. This passage may have occupied the site of the original
cross-passage giving a conventional plan, with hall stack backing onto the cross-
passage. With the removal of these stairs and entrance hall partitions the central
entry is now direct into the left-hand principal room, which is heated by a
fireplace set across the rear right-hand corner of the room and relating to the rear
brick stack.
2 storeys. 5 window range, mostly 2-light casements but first bay on left has
modern windows. 3 doors, that to left C20, 2 to right C19 plank doors.
Interior: original hall has cross ceiling beam with wide chamfer and hollow step
stops. Fireplace has roughly dressed stone jambs, replaced lintil and large brick-
line oven. Chamfered scroll-stopped doorway to chamber over lower end. Single C17
truss with 2 tiers of trenched purlins and typical halved and lap-jointed collar.
No sign of smoke-blackening. The roof structure over the right-hand range is
entirely late C18/early C19 with roughly pegged trusses and waney rafters.
