TM 15 SW
3/49 Hill Farmhouse
- II
Farmhouse, early or mid C15 with alterations of C16 and mid C19. A 3-cell
open hall house with cross-passage entrance. 2 storeys. Timber-framed and
plastered. Plaintiled roof with a C16 axial chimney of red brick; the gable
chimney to left was added in C19. Mid C19 small pane sashes and casements,
and 4-panelled entrance door. The central open hall has a good-quality
crownpost roof, complete, and with a cross-quadrate crownpost at the open
truss; all heavily smoke-blackened. The roof was originally hipped at either
end at the right hand parlour end the evidence remains for the high-level
gablet through which smoke escaped. Both ends of the roof were gabled in
coupled-rafter construction in C16; in C17 an open collar-beam truss was
inserted over the parlour-chamber for added headroom. In C16 or C17 an upper
floor was built over the open hall and a chimney was inserted between hall and
parlour. During major refurbishment in C19, the house was functionally
reversed and the parlour became a kitchen.
