5/136 Elm Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Mainly early-mid C16; service cell to left is C18, replacing
earlier work. Timber framed and plastered, pantiled roof. 3 cells. 2
storeys. Mainly sash windows with glazing bars, a canted ground floor bay to
right. 2 mid C20 first floor casements to left. To right of centre is a mid
C19 doorway with 6-panel door, plain surround and cornice; mid C20 enclosed
lean-to porch. Fine stack against right gable end, a late C16 or early C17
addition. The plinth has 3 4-centre arched recesses. Above, the main body of
the stack is parallel-walled as far as the roof, where the outermost face
corbels out and then diminishes in a bell-like profile to an oblong base with
the lower portions of 2 octagonal shafts. The upper part of the stack was
once stuccoed, with a pattern of squares and circles in black; only fragments
of this work now remain. Internal stack has plain C19 shaft. Interior. C16
work in 3 bays, one bay each for stack, hall and parlour. Good quality
studding, heavy arched corner braces in parlour chamber. Hall has chamfered-
joist ceiling. Parlour ceiling plastered over except for chamfered main beam.
At junction of hall and parlour chambers is a former open truss with arched-
braced cambered tie beam; a central vertical post extending to floor level is
presumed to be a C17 insertion. Roof has a single row of wind-braced clasped
purlins and arched-braced straight collars. C18 end has many re-used timbers
and a clasped-purlin roof. The stack has been enlarged to provide a cooking
hearth in this addition.
