SX 8380 HENNOCK CHURCH ROAD, (east side)
10/121 Longlands, including outbuilding
- at east end

House, formerly a farmhouse. Late medieval, remodelled late C16 or early C17; later
additions at rear. Solid, roughcast walls, probably of stone or cob. Slated roof
with clay ridge-tiles. 2 large projecting chimneystacks of painted ashlar (probably
granite) in front wall, heating former hall and parlour; both have offsets, thatch
weatherings and tapered tops, the right-hand stack having in addition a large pent-
roofed projection at its foot, probably an oven. A third stack on right-hand gable,
this also having thatch-weatherings and a tapered top. 3-room and through-passage
plan; rather grand for a Devon farmhouse in having a heated parlour in C16 or C17.
2 storeys. 4-window front, the second bay from right having a 2-storeyed gabled
entrance-porch. This is of stone in the ground storey, with seats at either side;
approached by 3 wide granite steps, the floor of porch having 4 old weathered
paving-stones. Entrance to porch has an ovolo-moulded wood frame with cranked head.
Inner doorway, now narrowed slightly, retains its old, wide, chamfered wood frame
with a flat head. Upper storey of porch has exposed, close-studded timber-framing;
C20 oriel window in front. Remaining windows all 3-light wood casements of 8 or 10
panes per light, except for the right-hand ground-storey window, which is a 2-light
wood casement with 6 panes per light.
Interior: through-passage has stud-and-panel screen at either side. Left-hand side
has chamfered studs with diagonal-cut stops; studs plain on reverse side, to hall.
Right-hand side also has chamfered studs, but the stops are badly worn; screen
includes chamfered door-frame with shouldered head. Plain, early floor-joists
above. Hall to left of passage, has chamfered beams with step-stops, set
considerably higher than top of screen. Fireplace with hollow-moulded stone jambs;
ovolo-moulded wood lintel with raised run-out stops. No partition now with parlour,
this having been moved to a converted outbuilding (see below). Parlour has
chamfered beams without visible stops; fireplace with C20 granite lintel. Roof-
space not inspected, but second-storey room over hall has closed trusses at either
To right of house a former outbuilding (included in the listing), now converted to
holiday accommodation. In left-hand gable this has a C17 chamfered wood door frame
with a flat head. In second storey is the partition said to have been moved from
the main house; this is of oak, 3 panels high with deep ovolo mouldings, and shows
signs of having been re-arranged, possibly before it was moved to this building.
