6/63 Crooke Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17 with C19 addition and alterations. Rendered cob walls. Gable ended
thatch and slate roof. 2 gable end brick stacks, rendered stack axial to rear wing
and at gable end of rear wing.
Plan: complex evolution of plan, the original form of which is not entirely clear
and it is possible that it is a heavy C17 remodelling of a medieval house. The main
C17 part is L-shaped with 2 rooms in the part projecting to the left and 1 room and
a passage in the right-hand part. To the rear at the centre is a 1-room heated wing
of uncertain date but likely to be pre-C18. To the left of this is a C19 range at
right angles to it, probably added as a kitchen. The whole of the interior was
also remodelled in the C19 and a staircase inserted in the front wing.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window L-shaped front with wing projecting
from left-hand end. Windows are 4-light late C18 casements with square section
mullions and leaded panes. 2 C20 glazed doors on ground floor of right-hand part.
Part glazed C20 door in inner corner of left-hand range. At rear of right-hand part
thatched wing projects with 1 storey C20 addition in front, to the rear of which is
slate-roofed C19 range at right angles.
Interior: apart from 1 chamfered ceiling beam with notched stops in original left-
hand part no original features are exposed on the ground floor. Several C18
fielded panel doors survive, however. Early C19 staircase with column newels and
stick balusters. Arch at bottom with reeded pilasters.
Roof: the 2 C17 front ranges have original roof trusses whose collars are halved on
with dovetail joints.
