17/389 Old Bailey Farmhouse



Former farmhouse. Late medieval origins, remodelled in the circa early/mid C17.
Whitewashed rendered cob and stone rubble; slate roof of 2 different heights, half-
hipped at ends; axial stack with rendered shaft, rear lateral stacks to left and
Plan: 3 room and through passage plan, the hall stack backing on to the passage,
lower end to the right; rear wing at right angles to the main range. The core of the
house is a late medieval open hall house with sooted roof timbers surviving from the
left end as far as the lower end of the hall. Roof not thoroughly inspected at time
of survey (1987) but the sooted timbers, below a later roof, do not extend over the
right end of the house: they may have been removed or the right end of the house
(the inner room) may always have been 2 storeys, there are 2 flights of stairs; one
rises from the end of the passage leading to the first floor over the lower end, a
second flight rises against the wall of the hall. The character of the carpentry on
the ground floor suggests that the house was floored with the stacks added in the
early/mid C17. There are some oddities to the plan: the hall is not rectangular but
the rear wall is at a slight angle and appears to be a thin partition, suggesting
some kind of rebuilding of the rear wall when the wing was added. The lower end
fireplace is in the rear corner of the room. A C20 single-storey glazed addition has
been added to the front of the inner room.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with a C20 timber front door to
the through passage to right of centre and a C20 door at the left end into the inner
room. Flat-roofed C20 glazed addition on the front at the right. 2 and 3 light C20
casement windows.
Interior: Rich in carpentry and joinery. Plank and muntin screen to the lower end
of the passage, the muntins moulded on the passage side; short section of plank and
muntin screen at the higher side of the passage, plank and muntin screen between
passage and inner room. The lower end room (to the right) has a chamfered cross beam
and corner stack in the rear left corner. An C18 corner cupboard is built into the
front right corner of the room. The hall has a good C17 open fireplace with a
chamfered lintel with bar stops and plaster armorial bearings over the lintel with
the initials BIC and a date of 1-50, (second numeral unclear). Inner room not
inspected at time of survey but said to have exposed carpentry.
Roof: The thatched medieval roof over the left end and centre of the range survives
below the present roof; the carpentry details of the main truses were not seen at
time of survey as access is awkward but sooted thatch survives, laid on rough wattle,
and the rafters and diagonally-set ridge are intact.
