5/72 Priory Farmhouse


House. Early C17, altered in C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. 3-bay main range facing SW with axial stack and
external stack at left end, and 2-bay crosswing to right. Single-storey lean-to
extension at left end. Main range of one storey with attics, crosswing of 2
storeys. 3-window range of C20 casements, including 2 in gabled dormers. Door
in left side of C20 porch. Chamfered axial beams with lamb's tongue stops,
plain joists of vertical section. Jowled posts, some exposed studding. Diamond
mortices in the rear wall probably imply re-use of timber rather than unglazed
windows in this building. Large wood-burning hearth facing to left, with
re-used mantel beam from a timber-framed chimney, and 0.33 metre walls of C17
bricks. Smaller wood-burning hearth facing to right with internal brick splays,
and chamfered mantel beam with lamb's tongue stops. Bread oven in rebricked
hearth at left end, door missing. Originally there was a lobby-entrance in
front of the stack, doorway now blocked. RCHM 19.
