- II

Farmhouse. Circa early C17 possibly with earlier origins, extended probably in C18
when a remodelling may have taken place. Plastered rubble and cob walls. Gable-
ended thatch roof to main right-hand range with natural slate roof to left-hand
part. 2 brick stacks at the gable ends and 2 axial stacks.
Plan: originally probably 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower room to the
left which has fireplace in its end wall and spiral stairs in projection to the
front of it. The rooms to the right of the passage were probably remodelled in the
C18 the central one becoming a parlour, both heated by fireplaces in the right-hand
wall. In the C18 a further heated room was added at the left-hand end of the house
as a secondary kitchen and a dairy and salting room added in a rear outshot may be
of a similar date.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5-window front the left-hand end of which
projects and is slate-roofed. To the left of the thatched part on the first floor
are 2 paired early C19 small-paned sashes with a 12-pane sash to right of centre and
later C19 6-pane sash to the far right. On the ground floor is a paired early C19
sash to right of centre and a C19 small-paned 2-light casement to the left. At the
left-hand end of the thatched part is a rectangular projection for the staircase and
the addition continues beyond it on the same line with a C20 12-pane sash on the
first floor with an early C19 one below to left and C20 2-light casement to the
rignt. Row of pigeon holes below eaves. C20 glazed porch to left of centre.
Interior: good C18 paneling in room to right of passage with the chimneypiece
removed. Ground floor rooms have chamfered and stopped beams. Other features may
be concealed.
Roof: straight principal rafters may date from the C17.
The Galsworthy family of Moor Farm occupied a prominent position in Hartland from
the beginning of the parish registers in 1558 and occupied Moor for at least 350
years first as customary tenants then owners.
