SX75SE Woodford Farmhouse

Farmhouse. C17 or earlier, remodelled in circa mid C19. Plastered stone
rubble and cob. Asbestos sheet roof with gabled lower right-hand end and
hipped left-hand end. Lateral and end stacks with rendered shafts and
yellow clay pots.
Plan and development: A 3 room and cross or through passage plan facing
south, the lower end to the right was the kitchen heated from and the higher
left-hand room has an end stack. At the back of the passage there is what
appears to be a stair turret. At the lower left end there is an outbuilding
with external steps at the front of the house at its left end but is set
back to the right. The outbuilding might have been the lower end of the
house originally if the house were extended at the higher left end
relegating the lower end to on outbuilding, but without an internal
inspection this cannot be proven.
Exterior: 2 storey. The house is a long asymmetrical 4-window range. C19
2 and 3-light casements with glazing bars. C19 panelled door to right of
centre with C20 conservatory built around it. At the lower end an
outbuilding with a lower level corrugated iron roof with a gable end. The
left end is flush with the front of the house but the remainder of the front
is set back and had an old plank door on the ground floor with a C19 2-light
casement above and external stone stair to the right up to a first floor
doorway. A later corrugated iron outshut built against the front of the
The rear elevation has what appears to be a rectangular stair turret at the
centre with a C19 2-light casement with glazing bars and a C20 single storey
rendered outshut on the angle to the right and another large rendered
outshut to the left behind the lower end. There are further outshuts behind
the lower end outbuilding to the left.
Interior: Only the lower end ground floor room was inspected. It has
chamfered cross-beams with indeterminate stops.
