8/110 Ridge's Farm
Farmhouse. Probably later C17 but altered in circa early C20. Plastered. Gable-
ended thatch roof, hipped corrugated iron roof to adjoining barn. 2 brick stacks,
one axial and one at right gable-end.
Plan: 3-room plan but apparently not with the customary through-passage. The 2 end
rooms are heated, the left-hand one by an axial stack. The central service room is
small and has an axial passage in front of it between the 2 end rooms through which
the house is entered. A C20 staircase has been inserted between the right-hand and
central rooms. At the left-hand end of the house an C18 barn has been added.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4-window front. On 1st floor are 2 metal frame
casements to right of centre and left, and 2 early C19 horizontal sliding 12-pane
sashes. 2 late C19 6-pane sashes on ground floor with late C20 2-light casement
without glazing bars to left. C20 gabled porch to right of centre with part-glazed
door. Barn at left-hand end has cart entrance on front wall.
Interior: rough ceiling beam in left-hand room. Its open fireplace was probably
rebuilt in the C19 and has brick jambs. Late C18 or early C19 corner cupboard with
panelled door. Feet of insubstantial straight principal rafters visible on 1st
