Dairy House and attached walls and


House. Late C17/early C18, altered c1820.
MATERIALS: limestone rubble with Ham Hill stone plinth and
dressings; slate roof with brick stacks to centre and north
end, truncated one to the east gable end.
PLAN: L-shape plan with entrance to the rear.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys with attic; the right-angled rear facade
is 3-window range; one window to the right wall, two to the
left. Oldest windows have chamfered stone mullions and label
moulds. The wing to the west is said to have been rebuilt in
1820 and the windows repositioned; single-storey canted bays
added to north and south ends of the main building; the east
wall of the main block has been raised, probably C18, and the
windows re-used. A planked-and-studded door to the left of the
left wing, under a flat stone porch on brackets, is hinged at
the centre; windows to this angle are 3-light to the
first-floor and 4-light below. A door to the rear of the left
wing, adjoining the main block and possibly repositioned, has
a Tudor-arched stone lintel under a flat, slabbed porch.
The right return, on Hermitage Street, is high above the road
with two 2-light stone-mullioned windows in a gable end to the
right and one small C19 plate-glass sash at gutter level.
INTERIOR: the room to the right (north) has an open fireplace
with an oak lintel, to the internal wall to the left; to the
right of it is the position of a spiral staircase, (evidence
is on the upper floor, where the wall is concave) and two
stopped chamfered cross-beams. The left wing and the rear,
(south) room of the main block have a stone-flagged floor; the
latter has one cross-beam, and elliptical arches flanking a
fireplace on the east wall. The attic has collar trusses with
diagonal ridge in notch; lower purlins have been removed;
principal rafters to the east wall remain, and later, C18 or
early C19 rafters run from the ridge to approx 1m higher at
the wall-plate.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the street side of the garden to the
north-west has a low rubblestone wall with Ham Hill stone
coping, spearhead railings and a tall gate; approx 1m from the
house the wall is stepped up to the height of the railings and
then is swept up to meet the house.
