4/67 Valley Farmhouse

- II

Farmhouse. Circa 1600. 2 storeys, formerly with attic; 3-cell internal
chimney plan. Timber-framed and rendered; clay pantiles. The ground floor of
the front is faced in C19 red brick, laid in Flemish bond. The internal stack
has 4 attached square shafts with moulded corbelling to the heads, and a
rectangular base with the top sloping upwards to the shafts. C20 casement
windows in traditional style: 3-light and 4-light, with a single horizontal
bar to lights. Plank door to a C20 enclosed and gabled red brick and pantiled
porch. Good framing exposed inside: the parlour has an ovolo-moulded main
beam with scroll-stops and bar, and joists with scroll-stop and jewel; the
hall, in 1½ bays, has plain, wide, unchamfered joists, the spaces between no
wider than the width of the joists themselves. 2 back-to-back hearths with
plain timber lintels. On the upper floor, arched braces remain in one truss,
the remainder removed; over the parlour are small solid braces to the main
cross-beam. A face halved and bladed scarf joint in the wall-plate, and the
slides and housings for diamond mullioned windows. The upper ceilings are
probably later; roof not examined.
