4/24 The Wern Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa 1400, altered C17, mid-C19 and mid-C20. Part rubble
(rendered to rear) and timber-framed with machine tiled roof and three brick
ridge stacks, part rubble; timber-framed and weatherboarded with corrugated
metal roof. Hall and cross-wing plan; hall part of four cruck-framed bays
aligned east/west, including a through-passage bay and having the main
chimney backing onto the passage. Cross-wing of three framed bays is
situated at the west end and is not in use at present. Single storey and
attic with dormers. Framing: not visible externally, South front elevation:
windows have timber lintels. There are two 3-light casements and a 2-light
casement on the ground floor, two gabled dormers with 3-light casements and
a gabled porch on timber posts with a partly-glazed door within. The cross-
wing gable end to the left has a door and a loft opening. Interior: two
pairs of full cruck blades were visible; five pairs are recorded to survive.
The former hall has an inserted C17 ceiling divided into six compartments
by stop-chamfered beams. The cross-wing retains much of its medieval roof
although it has been raised on the west side. It has three main moulded
arch-braced collar trusses, two subsidiary collar and tie-beam trusses with
raking struts, two tiers of cusped wind-braces, and two tiers of purlins.
