SS 43 SE
1/107 Dayapeep Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably early C16 origins, remodelled in C17 with some C19 and C20
alteration. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Thatch roof hipped at left end with
leanto slate roof to lofted granary and store room at right end. Stone rubble
stack at right end and front lateral hall stack with brick shaft and offsets. 3-
room through-passage former open hall house plan with dairy outshut to rear of
lower end and small 2-storeyed projection at right end incorporating pantry with
lofted granary and storeroom in front.
2 storeys. 4-window range. C19 2-light casements. 6 panes per light. Hall
window built out in line with stack with C20 3-light metal casement. Gabled slated
roof to porch with basket archway and inner plank door. 2-light casement 6 panes
per light to lower end. C20 porch with slate leanto roof at left end.
Interior; much of the C19 joinery intact including old wall bench to lower end.
Dairy fittings also intact. Roof structure consists of 5 trusses, the 2 trusses
are smoke-blackened suggesting the house was originally open to the roof from end
to end. The trusses originally had threaded purlins and morticed and tenoned
collars, but were reused in the C17 re-roofing and fitted with lap-jointed collars
to match those of the 3 new trusses. Unusually exposed site for this late medieval
former open hall house.
