Listing Text

SS 82 NW
1/48 Woods
- II
Farmhouse, now private dwelling. Probably late C16, extended apparently at night
end in C17, lower end rebuilt in C20. Unrendered stone rubble, some cob to rear.
Asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Stone rubble stack at right end and tall front
lateral hall stack with offsets.
Plan: variant 3-room and cross-passage plan, the wide cross-passage divided axially
to create an unheated rear room, and the lower end to left rebuilt in C20 as a
leanto. 2-storey gable-ended unheated service wing, probably early C17, to rear of
hall creating overall T-shaped plan. As interior could not be fully inspected, the
full sequence of development is not clear, but a straight joint and change in the
plinth between the hall and inner room suggests the latter has been added, probably
in the C17.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 3-window range. C20 2-light casements, hall and inner room
nave 3-light casements. Leanto slate roof to C20 porch.
Interior: inner room entirely altered. Original fireplace probably concealed.
Deep cnamfered cross ceiling beam and bressumers to hall. C17 panelling to rear of
former hall bench. Two 4-centred arched doorways with chamfered surrounds to rear
This type of plan is shared with Hill Farmhouse and Newland Farmhouse, West Anstey
