Disused farmhouse at
Churchtown Farm

the first sentence of the description shall be amended to read:
Small farmhouse now used as store.


SX 07 NE
5/199 Disused farmhouse at Churchtown
- Farm

Small farmhouse now used as stone Circa mid C17. Local granite rubble and moorstone
with roughly dressed granite quoins. Central range has rag slate roof with gable ends
and the lower ranges to right and left have galvanised and rag slate roofs with gable
ends. Granite rubble end stack on right hand gable end of central range. Plan: The
house comprises a central range of 2 room plan, the right hand room heated by an end
stack with cloam oven and the left hand room was probably unheated. The front
entrance has been remodelled and there is possibly a blocked door opening near the
centre on the rear elevation at the lower end on right. The house continues with a
lower range with a distinct staight joint between the 2 ranges on the front
elevation. However, there appears to be evidence of a possible passage which would
have backed onto the lower side of the stack in the central range and a blocked door
in the gable end which would have connected the two ranges. There is a C20 forge in
the right hand gable end of the lower range. On the higher end of the central range
to left, a circa C18 one-room plan extension.
The house therefore either appears to have originally comprised just the central
range of 2-room plan or alternatively was of 3-room and cross or through passage
plan, continuing to right, the front wall of the lower right hand range having been
In circa late C19 the house was used as a carriage house and stables for the rectory
(gv Ladydown House, Four Seasons and house forming NE wing).
Exterior: Single storey central range with lower roofs to single storey ranges on
right and left. C20 plank doors near centre and plank door to entrance in left hand
range. Rear elevation with granite surround of 2-light mullion window lighting left
hand room of central range.
Interior: Unmoulded granite lintel to fireplace and cloam oven (not accessible at
time of survey). Roof structure of central range comprises 3 circa mid C19 scissor
braced roof trusses, lap-jointed and pegged.
