SS 40 SE
10/14 South Trew Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early to mid C17 possibly with earlier origins, witn C19 addition.
Plastered cob walls. Gable-ended thatch roof. 2 brick stacks - 1 at right gable-
end and 1 axial, rubble stack at left gable-end with brick shaft.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-pasage plan, but of rather unusual proportions; lower room
to right is very narrow and its stack may be inserted. The hall is fairly small
with its stack backing onto the passage but its fireplace also appears later. The
inner room is larger and heated by a gable-end fireplace. C19 lean-to added behind
hall and inner room and staircase inserted into passage.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front of circa early - mid C20 2-light
casements. Small lean-to C20 porch towards right-hand end witn part-glazed door
behind to passage. C20 conservatory porch to left of centre.
Interior: inner room has 3 chamfered and stopped ceiling beams - the central one
with mortices an its soffit apparently for a partition although it may have been re-
used. Open fireplace with chamfered lintel and date-stone of 1782 built into top of
right-hand jamb with stone inscribed "I.B." in top of other jamb. Central room has
chamfered axial beam with run-out stops and smaller fireplace with plain wooden
lintel. Lower room has no visible early features. Over the left-hand end of the
house the curved foot of a roof truss is visible but access to the roof space at
this end is very difficult. Over the rest of the house is a probably C18 roof
structure of simple crude A-frames with straight principal rafters.
