5/38 Pool Batten Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse. Probably early C16, hall floored in late C16 or early C17 probably when
rear wing was added, with C20 alterations. Rendered stone and cob. Asbestos tiled
half-hipped roof. Front lateral hall stack with offsets and brick shaft. Stone
rubble stack set at an angle across upper rear left-hand corner.
3-room and former through-passage plan, the front and rear doorways of the through-
passage having been blocked in C20 and the hall/through passage screen removed. The
hall was originally open to the roof, and was probably floored over when the 2-
storeyed, gable-ended service range was added to its rear in the C17. C20 replaced
staircase at lower end to right, which is unheated; stack at upper end probably
inserted in C18.
2 storeys. 4-window range. C20 fenestration throughout, all 2-light casements.
Inserted C20 door with parlour with gabled porch. Window inserted in blocked
through-passage doorway. Plank door direct into lower end.
Interior: Screen removed from upper side of through-passage in C20, but morticed
headrail survives. Hall joists apparently replaced in C20. Cranked heads to
chamfered door surrounds to doorway from hall into service range and to blocked rear
through passage doorway. Rough chamfered cross ceiling beam to upper end with bread
oven to inserted fireplace. Wide chamfered cross ceiling beams with pyramid stops
to lower end. Solid wall partitions to lower side of cross-passage and between
hall/inner room.
Roof: not inspected but known to be smoke-blackened with 2 jointed cruck trusses
with diagonally set ridge purlin. (Alcock : Cruck Catalogue).
