- settlement at South Wheatley


Farmhouse. Circa late C16, possibly with earlier origins. Extended in late C19.
Rendered and painted stone rubble and cob and C19 range of local stone rubble. Slate
roof with gable ends to earlier range and hipped roof with deep eaves to taller later
Plan: Original house of 3-room and cross or through passage plan; hall heated by
lateral stack at front and inner room to right heated by end stack. It is uncertain
whether the lower end was heated. There is a thick cross wall between the hall and
inner room with a stair projection adjoining the inner room, providing access to the
chamber above. The roof structure above the hall is probably of the early C17
although this may be a replacement for there is the possibility with the low height
of the house and the thick wall between the hall and inner room, that the hall may
originally have been open to the roof.
In the left C19 the lower left end was demolished and replaced with an overall 'L'
shaped plan range probably comprising 3 principal rooms, the hall of the earlier
range became the kitchen and the inner room the dairy.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Taller circa late C19 stone rubble range to left has a regular
3-window front with C20 PVC windows in earlier openings. The lower circa late C16
rendered range to the right has a projecting front lateral stack with cloam oven
projection and C19 20-pane sash lighting hall. Stair projection to right lit by
circa late C19 casement window.
Interior: Ceiling beams obscured by later ceilings and hall fireplace partly
blocked. Circa C19 timber stair in projection. Roof structre above hall not fully
