2/15 Corner Farm Cottage


House, previously divided into 2. C15. 2 storeys. 3-cell plan, originally
with a 2-bay open hall. Timber-framed; encased in mid C19 red brick; a flint
and brick lean-to at each end; clay pantiles. An internal chimney-stack with
a plain red brick shaft. 3 3-light C20 casement windows to each floor, those
on the ground floor with transomes. 2 plank doors. The partition at the
lower end of the hall remains, with 2 fine service doorways, pointed, with a
continuous moulding, each side cut from a single piece of timber. The service
rooms are still divided into 2. The open truss of the hall, with traces of
smoke-blackening, has a cambered tie-beam and long arched braces, all with
hollow chamfer moulding. The moulded base of the crown-post is visible just
below the present upper ceiling level, but the remainder of the roof is
inaccessible. The inserted stack was placed over the position of the open
hearth, and cut the hall in 2. The stack, with 2 back-to-back hearths, has
open fireplaces with plain timber lintels. The upper bay of the hall, and the
original storied upper end, were made into one to form a large C16 parlour
with a fine inserted ceiling: ovolo-moulded joists, and a main beam with a
complex shallow moulding on its soffit.
