28/10/76 Shute Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now a house. C18 remodelling and alteration of
earlier house with C19 extension. Painted render over
rubblestone; slate and pantile roof, rubblestone stack to rear
right and left gable end, brick stack to left-of-centre.
Probably 3-unit through-passage plan later divided into 2
dwellings, now with a C19 double-gabled rear wing to the rear
left and lean-to to the right; now one house.
2 storeys; 4-window range. Mostly C19 two-light casement
windows with small panes. The pantiled left end of the house,
built into the hillside, has 2 half-dormers and a door to the
left. The slate-roofed right end has a C19 gabled porch
flanked by a 2-light window to the right and 3-light window to
INTERIOR: altered, but photographs of a former open fire and
bread oven under a central rear lateral stack exist.
HISTORY: The name probably means that it was a farm developed
on a block of strips or shot, at the end of one of the open
fields. This may mean that it originated in the 1400s when
demesne land was let for a money-rent and could by held in a
block with other strips.
