UPLOWMAN
ST 01 NW
4/173 Stagg Mill Farmhouse
-
GV II
Farmhouse. Late C16 - early C17, maybe earlier origins; throughly modernised in the
early C19. Mostly plastered stone rubble with some cob; stone rubble stacks with
C19 brick chimneyshafts; slate roof, formerly thatch.
Plan and development: L-plan house. The main block is built across the hillslope,
its back terraced into it, and it faces east. It has a 4-room plan. At the left
(south) end is the kitchen with a projecting rear lateral stack. Between this and
the former hall (present dining room) is the main stair and a small unheated room.
The hall has a projecting rear lateral stack. At the right (north) end of the main
block there are 2 small rooms, one behind the other. The front one has a gable end
stack. At the right end a 3-room plan block set at right angles project forward and
overlapp only the front corner of the main block. Although the main block was
thoroughly refurbished in the C19 the layout appears to be that of a late C16 -early
C17 (maybe earlier) 4-room-and-through-passage plan house. The left room is a
service end kitchen. Next to it an unheated dairy, and the present stair maybe
occupies the site of the passage although the slope of the land to rear suggests
that there was no rear doorway. The dining room occupies the former hall and the
former inner room has been sub-divided. The stack here is probably secondary. The
front wing is a parlour crosswing. Something room is unheated. The larger middle
room has a projecting outer lateral stack. In the C19 a staircase was inserted here
with a new front doorway. The front end room is a something room and maybe a C19
addition.
The house is 2 storeys.
Exterior: irregular 5-window front of mostly C19 and C20 casements, the latest
without glazing bars. The 2 first floor windows at the left end maybe C18; they
have flat-faced mullions and contain rectangular panes of leaded glass, the left one
with original ferramenta. The front doorway is left of centre and contains a late
C19 door behind a contemporary gabled porch. The wing has a 3-window front of
similar C19 and C20 casements and the doorway here contains a C19 6-panel door
behind a later gabled porch. The main block roof is gable-ended. The wing is
hipped at the front. The rear of the main block contains a couple of single light
windows, each a C17 casement reset back to front; one has an ornate wrought iron
catch. The rear end of the wing includes a Beerstone plaque inscribed J and AC,
1657.
Interior: the main block shows mostly early C19 and C20 detail. The kitchen
fireplace, though lined with C19 brick has a C17 chamfered oak lintel. Other early
features might survive here under C19 plaster. The rear room of the parlour
crosswing has a late C16-early C17 plank-and-muntin screen between it and the C19
stairs inserted into the main parlour. The muntins are chamfered with runoutstops
on both sides and it includes a Tudor arch doorway with moulded surround. The
ceiling is carried on contemporary 9-panel intersecting beam ceiling, the beams are
richly moulded. The panels contain ornamental plasterwork which is probably early
C17. Each panel contains floral sprays in the corners and a central motif such as a
bird amongst oak leaves or a pegasus. The centre room, the main parlour, has a 4-
panel intersecting beam ceiling according to the owner but it is now hidden. The
fireplace here is blocked. The roof was not inspected but the owner reports a C19
roof construction throughout.
