27.9.65 Farmhouse


House. Late C16 or early C17 with added porch initialled and dated
Dressed stone, stone slate roof. 2 storeys. 3-room direct-entry
plan with gabled single-storey porch. 3-light double-chamfered
mullioned window to parlour; inserted C19 doorway with monolithic
jambs; 2-light fire-window, 5-light housebody window. The 2 main
windows have hoodmoulds with straight returns and cavetto-moulded
mullions. Porch has doorway with cyma-moulded surround, the lintel
bearing date and with corners notched perhaps indicating it is re-used;
small chamfered light set in gable which is coped with kneelers. The
inner door (of porch) has composite jambs and broad stop-chamfered
surround. 2-light window to service-end. 1st floor has 2 windows
with chamfered surrounds, formerly of 2 lights lacking mullion and,
centrally placed, a C19 window with plain stone surrounds. Coped
gables with kneelers, that to right preserves lantern finial. 2
stacks to ridge and one other (capped) to right hand corner. Rear
has small chamfered lights to 1st floor and added mid-C20 flat-roofed
extension out of sympathy. Side walls have a single 2-light double-
chamfered mullioned window to ground floor.

Interior: Housebody retains large deep bressumer and stop-chamfered
spine beam and floor joists. Other rooms have chamfered beams. 2
king-post trusses, one with groove to the soffit of tie-beam and 6
vertical struts with curved brace to the ridge. The other is open
with single angle-struts (set over the bressumer). To the north
of the fireplace is a small room with curved inner angle and small
chamfered light. It is likely that this originally housed a spiral-
staircase, now removed. Here also is a fragment of the original oak
panelling. RCHM (England) report.
