5/103 Frost Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse and flat. C17 or earlier, with later additions. Roughcast solid walls;
the front wall is said to be of stone in ground storey with cob above, the rear wing
wholly of cob. Roof thatched with wheat reed; the lower layer was left on at the
last re-thatching. Added range to left is asbestos-slated, and added lean-to at
rear has roof of corrugated asbestos. In right-hand gable a large projecting
chimneystack with off-sets; later shaft on top. On ridge to left are 2 rendered
chimneyshafts, 1 on original left-hand gable, 1 on left-hand gable of later
addition. In rear gable of rear wing a projecting stack with added shaft. 2-room
and through-passage plan with rear kitchen wing at right-angles to main range, on
right-hand side. Early or mid C19 addition to left of main range; added lean-to at
rear. 2 storeys; the added lean-to single-storeyed. Roughly symmetrical front, 3
windows wide, to the old house. Door in centre of ground storey is 6-panelled, the
4 lower panels flush, the 2 top panels now glazed; flat hood above, on shaped
brackets. Windows are all C19 wood casements of 4 lights, except for the slightly
off-centre second-storey window which is of 3 lights; all lights are of 3 panes.
Addition to left has one 10-paned sash window without horns in each storey. Short
length of C19 cast-iron railing in front of garden, the uprights with twisted shafts
and lily-heads.
Interior: right-hand ground-storey room has chamfered ceiling-beams, 1 with a
scroll-stop visible. Gable-fireplace (now with small C20 chimneypiece) is said to
be large with old wood lintel. In rear wing the large gable-fireplace in kitchen
has chamfered wood lintel with rounded step-stops. There is no solid wall between
the wing and main range, suggesting they may be of a single build. Roof of wing has
a side-pegged jointed-cruck truss. Trusses of main range are heavily plastered
over, but one seems to have a curved foot. The front wall has clearly been raised
and secondary roof-timbers inserted. The apex of roof-space is not accessible. The
farm was formerly called Cridiford.
