SX26NE Halbathick Farmhouse


Farmhouse, now disused. Probably early C17, partly rebuilt
later C17, slightly remodelled in mid C19. Stone rubble walls
with some granite dressings; dry Delabole slate roofs with
gable ends including rear stair wing and sweeping lower at
rear right; original rubble stacks over cross wall towards
right and over right-hand end.
3-room and through-passage plan with lower end (left) roofless
following a fire and now partly ruinous, plus late C17 stair
wing behind deeper central hall and integral pantry outshut
behind parlour, on right. Later shallow wash house with
copper, now ruinous, in front of lower end. 2 storeys.
Irregular 2-window east range has slightly projecting central
hall front with wide drip mould of former hall window, rebuilt
under and to left circa mid C19 and with 16-pane 2-light
casement; above former hall window is an early C19 two-light
casement with 5 horizontal glazing bars to left-hand light and
later casement with 4 horizontal bars on its right.
Parlour front, partly rebuilt circa mid C19, has doorway
towards left with ledged door, small window with horizontal
glazing bar in partly blocked tall opening and 16-pane 2-light
casement on the right, both windows with iron stanchions;
12-pane 2-light casement to 1st floor. Middle and head or sill
of 2-light C17 mullioned window reused as quoin on right. Rear
of stair wing has later window to gable end but 2 blocked
window openings in the left-hand angle. Projection to
right-hand gable is probably an oven. Studwork partitions of
hall/chamber to through passage are sheeted over with
corrugated iron.
INTERIOR retains many original C17 features including
flat-chamfered granite fireplace to hall, hollow-chamfered one
to parlour and hearthstone of probably C17 fireplace to
chamber above parlour; plastered hall ceiling and plaster
chamber ceilings with feet of probably C17 trusses visible;
ovolo-moulded doorframe between hall and parlour and dogleg
stair with unusually wide upper flight and turned balustrade
to landing. Also some C19 features including parlour ceiling
joists and late C19 iron grate to chamber over parlour.
Keeping places at parlour end are probably original. Lying
near the front are chamfered jambs of probably former doorway
with ball stops.
Halbathick is an interesting example of C17 plan development
and except for the partial loss of its lower end has been
unaltered since the C19.
