Listing Text

6/4 Burrow's Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C17, with later alterations and extensions. Random rubble chert; gable-
end and hipped corrugated iron roof, with the thatch surviving beneath. Originally
a 3 room, through-passage plan house; the service end, to the left of the passage,
is connected to a lower range of farm buildings. The inner room projects forward as
a result of the addition in the C19 of a dairy. The hall and service end have been
widened to allow for the addition of a rear passage. End stack heats service; hall
heated by axial stack backing onto passage. Rendered brick shafts. Inner room
unheated. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: irregular fenestration; two 3-light half dormers; ground floor;
service end with early C19 3-light casement window with stanchion and saddle bar.
4-light casement window to hall, C19 in earlier embrasure. Wide doorway to passage,
with partially glazed door. A slight bulge to the right of the passage probably
marks the site of a former newel stair. Dairy with hipped roof; 3-light casement
window to first floor; 3-light guaged ventilator below. Rear: some C19 casements,
otherwise all C20. C19 porch with fancy bargeboarding.
Interior: Service end with roughly hewn ceiling cross beam; fireplace lintel with
shallow chamfer. Hall: 3 deeply chamfered ceiling cross beams with step stops.
Fireplace blocked and details of lintel obscured. Roof: with thatch largely
intact. Long straight principals halved and pegged at apex; large ridge piece.
