SS 71 NW
4/27 Wixon Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Early C16 origins, entirely remodelled and extended in late C19.
Roughcast rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roofs, front range half-hipped at
left end. Brick stacks to each end of front range and to left end of rear range.
Plan: Twin parallel ranges, the principal front range to south side being the earlier
core and retaining evidence of formerly being an open hall-house, with lower end to
left. C19 remodelling has obscured evidence of the probably C16/C17 alterations, but
the wide passage containing staircase with large room to right, itself probably
formerly divided into two, and smaller room to left probably preserves the original
plan. The parallel gable-ended range added at the rear also in the late C19 has a
large kitchen to left and dairy/salting room to right of entrance passge also
containing staircase. The whole forms an imposing rear service range but may at one
time have housed a separate family unit.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 4 window range. C19 fenestration intact all 16 paned hornless
sashes. French windows inserted in C20 at right end. Offcentre doorway with glazed
panelled door. Rear range has large 24-paned sash to kitchen, with 4 window range
Interior C19 joinery largely intact. Large kitchen fireplace with bread oven. Tiled
floor to dairy/salting house.
Roof: Single raised cruck truss survives over upper end, with cambered morticed and
tenoned collar, and formerly 2 tiers of threaded purlins and diagonally set ridge
purlins. The truss and the stubs of some of the rafters are smoke-blackened.
