3/17 Well Meadow Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Probably C16 and C17. Roughcast granite stone rubble; granite stacks,
one with its original granite ashlar chimney shaft; thatch roof.
Plan: 3-room-and-through-passage plan farmhouse built across the hillslope facing
north-west. The inner room is at the right (south-western) end. It is unheated and
was probably a dairy. The hall has an axial stack backing onto the passage and the
service end room has a gable-end stack. Since an internal inspection was not
available at the time of this survey it is not possible to determine the historic
development of the house but it seems likely that it was originally some kind of
open hall house. It is now 2 storeys.
Exterior: Irregular fenestration; 3 ground floor and 2 first floor windows, all late
C19 and C20 casements with glazing bars. The front passage doorway is left of
centre and contains a C20 plank door behind a contemporary gabled and slate-roofed
porch. Roof is half-hipped to right and gable-ended to left.
Interior was not available for inspection at the time of this survey but it
evidently has not been modernised since the late C19 - early C20. C16 and C17
features are suspected throughout the house and several are probably hidden behind
later plaster. It may have a late medieval roof.
