3/83 Common Moor Farmhouse


Farmhouse. C16 and C17. Plastered stone rubble, maybe with some cob; stone rubble
stacks and chimneyshafts; thatch roof, corrugated iron roof to the outshots.
Plan and development: 3-room-and-through-passage plan farmhouse facing west. Small
unheated inner room at the right (south) end. Next to it the hall has an axial
stack backing onto the passage. The service end room at the left (north) end has a
gable-end stack; it is probably the kitchen. Since no internal inspection was
available at the time of this survey it was not possible to determine the structural
history of the house although it seems likely that it began in the C16 as some form
of open hall house maybe heated by an open hearth fire. The fireplaces and ceilings
would be added in the late C16 and C17. 2 storeys with rear outshots.
Exterior: irregular front fenestration with 4 ground floor windows and 2 first
floor half dormer windows. They are casements either with glazing bars or
rectangular panes of leaded glass; some of the latter may be as early as the C18.
The passage front doorway is roughly central and contains a C19 plank door. The
roof is gable-ended to left and half-hipped to right.
Interior: was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but the owner
reports that it has been little modernised in the C20 and contains much C16 and C17
carpentry detail.
