Lower Farleigh Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa early C19 Local stone rubble with slate hung front.
Slurried rag slate roof with gabled ends and plastered coved eaves. Large
stone rubble gable end chimney stacks with slate drips and tapered tops.
Plan: 2-room plan front range with a central entrance hall containing the
stairs. Both rooms are heated from gable end stacks, the right hand room
is the parlour the left hand room the hall (living room with a large
fireplace;) behind the left hand room there is a wing containing the
kitchen with a large gable end fireplace and a back staircase. Across the
left hand end and against the left side of the wing there is an outbuilding
with a (wool?) loft above with access from external stairs in the rear
angle. Later in the C19 a wing containing the dairy was added to the back
of the right hand end. The space between the two wings was filled in
Exterior: storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window range, the doorway very
slightly to the right of centre with an early Cl9 fielded panel door. Early
C19 16-pane sashes and first floor centre a 12-pane sash; all with slate
To the left a lower half-hipped roof over the outbuilding its end is flush
with the front hall of the house and has 1 small C19 2-light casement with
glazing bars on the ground and first floors. the left side of the
outbuilding has a C19 plank door with a slated canopy above; and in the
rear angle a flight of external stone steps up to the loft with a porch at
the top of the steps.
At the back the original kitchen wing to the right is slate hung on the
side with 2-and 3-light casements with glazing bars, and a stack at the
gable end. The rear wing to the left is a later C19 addition, although
there is no straight masonry joint on the outer wall. The space between
the two wings has been filled in with a flat roof addition.
Interior: A round arch at the bottom of the stairs has a panelled intrados
and import mouldings. Part of the partition between the hall and the left
hand room has been removed; this room has a large fireplace with an
unchamfered timber lintel. The right hand room, the parlour has a circa
1840 chimneypiece. The kitchen has a large fireplace. The plan is
interesting for a relatively small farmhouse in having a parlour and the
traditional hall/living room as well as a kitchen in a rear wing containing
a back staircase.
Farleigh was a Domesday Manor.
