Deneridge Farmhouse

(Formerly listed as Deanridge Farmhouse, DEANRIDGE HILL)



Farmhouse. Circa early C16, remodelled late C16, and again late C17. Rubble and
cob, rendered and colourwashed in part, gabled asbestos slate and asbestos sheeting
roofs; stacks with C20 brick shafts.
Plan: 3-room and through-passage plan, the lower end to the right. The hall may
originally have been open to the roof. Late C16 the hall would have been floored
and an axial stack inserted at the higher (left) end, but the inner room remained
unheated. In the late C17 the roof was renewed when the kitchen was moved into the
hall, the lower room becoming a byre, inner room raised in status to a parlour with
an added stack at the higher end, through-passage blocked and a new doorway inserted
directly in front of hall fireplace to form a lobby entry. Stair turret at rear of
the hall.
Exterior: 2 storeys, 1:1:2:2 window range, 2- and 3-light late C20 casements,
second bay from left projects in a narrow gabled porch, C20 outer door opening with
sidelights, inner doorway very broad in a moulded wooden frame, 4-centred arch head,
(this doorway probably reused from the original through-passage). Stair turret with
2 wood-mullioned windows at rear of the hall.
Interior with plank and muntin screen on lower side of the through-passage, much
obscured by C20 partitioning; kitchen fireplace blocked, wooden bressumer. Hall
with chamfered axial ceiling beam, fireplace with moulded wood bressumer with 4-
centred arch head, rubble jambs. Parlour with C17 moulded plaster cornicing.
Winder staircase to the turret, wooden threads over cob, turned newel with finial.
Roof: renewed C17, straight principals.
