858-1/2/98 West Ilkerton Farmhouse and attached


Farmhouse. Early C17, much reconstructed and extended C19 and
C20. Rubble or rendered rubble, slate roof, stone stacks.
3-room cross-passage plan, and formerly with the house at the
right-hand (NE) end, an attached byre to the left; the byre
now part of the domestic premises, including a C20 bay at the
outer end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 3+3-window range. Windows all 2 or
3-light casements, mainly C19; at first floor are small
casements at eaves level to the left of a wide gable over deep
2- and 3-light, with a further 3-light to a small half-dormer
gable far right. The ground floor has a 2-light and
single-light in the left-hand section, and two 2-light and a
3-light to the right. Between the parts is a large gabled
porch with outer opening pointed, and square rubble stacks to
the right of the passage opposite the porch, and to the right
gable. The gable end to the lane is part of the C20 extension,
and there is a lean-to across the rear wall.
INTERIOR: the house, to the right, has the main parlour to the
right, with a low compartmental ceiling having early C17 beams
and rafters with pyramid-stopped chamfers. The main fireplace,
backing on the passage, has a renewed bressumer. Opposite the
fireplace is a door in the far left corner, and a full-width
panelled early C17 bench. The roof was not inspected, but
appears to have been replaced in the C19.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: attached to the outer gable is a rubble
wall approx 2.1m high and extending approx 8m across the yard
to a plain stopped end. The yard is mainly cobbled; the range
of buildings (not included) to the S has been converted to
domestic use.
Although much altered in the C19, this building has retained
important elements of its early fabric. The plan form and
position of the cross passage indicates that this building
originated as a longhouse type of dwelling, one of a number
which survive on the fringes of Exmoor.
