6/191 Marks Farmhouse

Former farmhouse. C16 or C17. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; cob or stone
rubble stack with brick chimneyshaft; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan: apparently a 3-room-and-through-passage plan farmhouse facing west. The left
(north) end is the inner room. Next is the former hall with front projecting
lateral stack and projecting window bay alongside. Service end room across the
passage the right (south) end. Since no internal inspection was available at the
time of this survey it is not possible to determine the historic development of the
house. Nevertheless it seems likely that it began in the C16 as some form of open
hall house. Now 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 2-window front of C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars, the
left ones in the hall bay. Similar windows in the other sides. The passage front
doorway is right of centre and contains a probably C19 part-glazed plank door. Main
roof is gable-ended.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but is said
to contain old beams and the like.
