TL 61 NW GREAT CANFIELD BACON END
3/10 BACONS FARMHOUSE
Farmhouse, C16 or earlier, altered in C17, C19 and C20. Mainly timber
framed, encased in brickwork, partly of structural brickwork, roof tiled.
Originally of 4 bays aligned approximately N-S, aspect W. C16 external
chimney stack on rear wall at second bay from the N. Inserted chimney stack
at partition between the 2 S bays, date unknown. Halls raised in C17.
In the late C19 the whole building was encased in red brickwork, Flemish bond, and
re-fenestrated. Later a bay was added to the N in structural brickwork,
lighter in colour and set back slightly from the existing elevation, and
the roof tiles re-set to blend well together. W elevation, ground floor,
3 late C19 or C19 type sash windows under shallow segmental arches, of which
one is large and tripartite, glazed main door in latticework porch, glazed
subsidiary door in S bay. First floor, 6 late C19 or C19 type sash windows.
The interior is fully plastered, except the S bay which was partially stripped
when examined in December 1982, revealing heavy close studding and traces of
mutilated C17 wall paintings. No access to roof. The limited evidence
available suggests a late medieval hall house of high status, with parlour/
solar bay to the N, 2-bay hall with side chimney stack, and S service end, or
a C16 derivation of this plan.
