5/145 Upcott Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably late C16, refurbished in 1641 by Richard Crudge (datestone and
initials on front). Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; slate roof formerly
thatched, hipped at ends; 3 rear lateral stacks.
Plan: 3 room and through passage main range (lower end to the right) plus a fourth
room at the lower end and a rear left wing at right angles to the main range with a
salting-house and former dairy on the ground floor.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 5 window front with a front door to right of
centre and C19 or C20 3-light timber casements with glazing bars except ground floor
right which is a later C20 replacement.
Interior: The hall, to left of the passage, has a plaster ceiling with a moulded
cornice, the ceiling decorated with plaster motifs including wreaths and floral
sprays. 2 chamfered cross beams are plastered over with moulded cornices, all,
presumably, of 1641. C20 chimneypiece, probably concealing earlier jambs and lintel.
The lower end room has a chamfered step-stopped crossbeam, possibly late C16. The
lateral stack is partly blocked but said to retain a bread oven. Left hand room not
Roof: C17 pegged trusses, possibly crucks of some type. At least 2 of the first
floor rooms were originally plastered up to the collars of the trusses with a moulded
cornice which still survives in the roofspace. Part of this C17 ceiling has
collapsed but survives in the roofspace above later inserted ceilings.
