SX 64 SE
4/90 Townsend


House, formerly farmhouse. Apparently mid C17 but may have earlier origins.
Plastered rubble and cob walls. Thatch roof gabled to left end, hipped to right.
Brick stack at gable end and rear lateral rubble stack with brick shaft.
Play: at present 3-room plan with largest room to right, cross passage to its
left with small central room beyond it, which has an axial passage behind it
leading to the left-hand room. The axial passage may be a C20 insertion but
opening onto it is an original winder staircase in a shallow projection. C19
outshut added behind right-hand room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of C20 small-paned 1 and 2-
light casements. C20 4-panel door at centre under slate pentice. Rear elevation
has out shut to left and small rectangular stair projection slightly to right of
Interior: right-hand room has chamfered and step-stopped ceiling beams. The
ceiling level drops close to the partition wall in a way which resembles an
internal jetty and apparently also has a partition over it, but the roof structure
dates only from the C18 over this end, and so provides no corroborating evidence.
