5/203 Little Cobden Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 and C17, some C20 modernisation. Plastered cob on stone rubble
footings; one stack is cob or stone rubble, the other is brick, both have plastered
chimneyshafts; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and development: 3-room-and-through-passage plan farmhouse facing west-south-
west, say west. At the right north end is an unheated inner room. Next to it is
the former hall with an axial stack backing onto the passage. A newel stair turret
projects to rear of the hall close to the passage rear doorway. At the left south
end is the lower end kitchen with projecting gable-end stack. Since no internal
inspection was available at the time of this survey it is not possible to determine
the historic development of the house in detail. Nevetheless it seems clear that
the house was built in the C16 as some form of open hall, maybe heated by an open
hearth fire. House is 2 storeys with a lean-to outshot to rear of the hall and
Exterior: irregular 5-window front of C20 casements with no glazing bars. Passage
front and back doorways contain C20 doors. Roof is gable-ended.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey. However an
oak plank-and-muntin screen was seen at the upper end of the hall. The old layout
appears to be well-preserved and therefore a good deal of C16 and C17 structural
detail is suspected.
