6/39 Hall Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Circa 1400, altered C16, remodelled circa 1880 with further
later C20 alterations. Timber-framed with rendered infill, mainly refaced
in brick. Plain tiled roofs, moulded pendant finials and bargeboards at
most gable ends and brick ridge stacks. H-plan. Central range originally
a four-bay hall-house aligned roughly north/south with a cross-passage bay
at the south end. Cross-wing of two framed bays added at north end, probably
in the late C16 which has a lean-to outshut with a catslide roof on its north
side. South cross-wing added late C19. Two storeys, cellar and attic.
Framing: northern outshut has two rows of panels from sill to wall-plate on
its north side. Also collar and tie-beam truss with V-strut above collar
at west end of north cross-wing. Main west elevation: central range has a
ground floor single-light window with a cambered head, a gabled dormer with
a plain glass window and a half-glazed, hipped roofed C20 brick extension
with a half-glazed door. Left gable end has a 4-light ground floor casement
and a first floor 2-light casement (both with cambered heads) and a pair of
attic lights. The lean-to outshut has a first floor 2-light casement with
a cambered head and a lean-to C20 brick porch with a glazed door. The right
gable end has no openings. Interior: original part has retained its roof
structure including its central open truss and two chamfered collar trusses
with cusped raking struts. There is no evidence of former wind-braces. The
interior wall-framing of the cross-wing is largley intact and the cross-frame
has a chamfered arch-braced collar and tie-beam truss and doorway with a shaped
doorhead. In the original part a large chimney was built backing onto the
former cross-passage, probably in the C17, and a ceiling was inserted at the
same time with chamfered beams dividing it into 16 compartments. A detached
kitchen once stood to the south-west of the building which was demolished
in the late C20.
