SS 71 SW
2/29 Pouncers Farmhouse including
cob wall adjoining to south.


Small farmhouse. Late C16 - early C17. Plastered cob on rubble footings exposed on front to first floor level; stone rubble stacks topped with C20 brick; thatch roof.
Main block facing south is probably derived from 3-room-and-through-passage plan
with inner room at right (east) end. Through passage now at left end suggesting
demolition of former service end. Probably secondary service block at right angles to rear of hall and inner room. Rear lateral stack to hall and projecting end stack to inner room.
2-storeys. Irregular 3-window front of various late C19 casements with glazing bars. C19 plank doors at either end of through passage, roof is gable ended and service wing roof has hipped end and also includes late C19 casements with glazing bars.
Interior: only limited inspection possible at time of survey. Although it appears mostly as results of C19 and C20 modernisation they appear superficial and late C16-early C17 structure appears intact. Hall has 3-bay ceiling carried on crossbeams with deep soffit chamfers and no stops. Inner room has soffit-moulded and stopped axial beam. Date of rear block unknown.
From right end of front a high buttressed plastered cob wall with tile coping
extends southwards alongside front garden.
