5/37 Newhall Farmhouse and Ha-Ha to
- rear

- II*

Farmhouse. C15 with later (C16 and C19) additions and alterations. Cob and stone
mix, rendered under a dry-slate gabled-end roof. This roof covers the remains of an
earlier 8-bay roof of cruck construction, 4 bays of which are smoke-blackened.
Originally a 3-room, through-passage plan, the lower end to the left of passage (the
front is here taken to face the farmyard); with a lower-end wing added (probably in
the C16), and a right-hand extension (of stone, under a catslide roof) in the C19.
2 axial stacks with brick shafts : one to the Hall backing on to passage, another to
the right (formerly an end stack heating parlour); stone axial stack at junction of
wing and main range. 2 storeys.
Front. 4-window range; C19 2 and 3-light windows above with lintels at eaves level;
left-of-centre entrance to former passage with fielded-panelled door under slate-
roofed open porch supported by 2 chamfered timber posts, with one C19 2-light window
to the left, and two 1 and 3-light timber windows to the right. To the right of
this range is the C19 extension with 2 entrances, one under a slate-roofed open
porch and one 3-light timber window.
Rear: one entrance in angle formed by junction of main range and wing is opposed to
front passage entry, and another entrance to the left, both are under matching
slate-roofed open porches; 3 C19 2-light timber windows above, one C20 3-light
timber window below to tall; with two 3-light windows to end of wing, the upper one
under depressed C19 arch. All windows are casements, with 6 lights or 2 lights per
Interior: rooms not inspected, although 3 chamfered beams visible in parlour. Wind
braces visible in 1st floor rooms.
Roof space: 7 principals td older roof; an eighth is missing. Where apex
carpentry survives it is morticed and side pegged with no ridge-piece socket.
4 bays with principals and purlins smoke blackened, the principals to either
end of this section sooted on inner side only and closed; this presumably marks
the medieval Hall; principals here with moulded arch braces (concave chamfer
and roll moulding); purlins threaded. Some smoke-blackened rafters.
