2/43 Moat Farmhouse

- II

Former farmhouse, surrounded on 2 sides by the remains of a rectangular moat.
Late C16. 2 storeys and attics. Timber-framed and roughcast-rendered; clay
pantiles. An internal chimney-stack with a plain rebuilt red brick shaft. 3-
light casement windows to each floor, those on the ground floor with
transomes. C20 enclosed and gabled porch with C20 mock Georgian door. Frame
in 5 bays including a chimney bay; 3-cell lobby-entrance plan; all timbers
exposed inside. Full height studs; reversed braces at the corners; several
blocked original windows, those on the upper floor with housings for diamond
mullions; one doorway with arched spandrels. Plain beam-and-joist ceilings to
all ground floor rooms. The partition wall to the service area has been
removed and replaced by brick, and the 2 service rooms have been made into
one, with a blocked stair trap in one corner. The chamber over the service
rooms, probably used as a cheese chamber, was not accessible from the rest of
the upper floor. The chimney-stack has 2 back-to-back hearths and timber
lintels on the ground floor and a smaller fireplace with arched brick surround
to the parlour chamber. On the upper floor, the trusses have cranked arched
braces and cambered tie-beams. Original attic space, the roof with principals,
2 rows of butt purlins, and windbraces.
