5/198 Barnshayes Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 or C17 origins, much rebuilt in the early - mid C19, thoroughly
modernised circa 1970. Plastered cob on stone rubble footings; stone rubble stacks
with plastered chimney-shafts; thatch roof.
Plan: farmhouse faces south-east. It has a 2-room plan with a stair in a narrow
third cell at the left (south-west) end. Next to it is the lounge with rear lateral
stack and kitchen at right end has an end stack. This farmhouse appears to be a C19
house but modernised circa 1970. However the farmer reports an oak arch-headed
doorway was briefly exposed circa 1970. Also the stairs are in an odd position. It
could be that they occupy the site of a C16 or C17 through-passage and that the
rooms occupy the former hall and inner room. 2 storeys.
Exterior: symmetrical 3-window front of C20 casements with glazing bars. Doorway
is to rear into the kitchen and it contains a C20 door. Roof is tall and steeply
pitched. It is hipped both ends.
Interior: is wholly the result of a thorough circa 1970 modernisation. No carpentry
is exposed and the fireplaces are blocked. The arch-headed doorway was discovered
in the wall between the lounge and stair hall. Roof of C19 tie beam trusses with
spiked lap-jointed collars.
