MORCHARD BISHOP
SS 70 NE
5/98 Bishopsleigh Farmhouse
-
- II

Farmhouse. Late C16-early C17, possibly earlier. Plastered cob on rubble footings;
rubble stacks topped with C19 and C20 brick; slate roof (formerly thatch). Large 3-
room-and-through-passage plan house facing south with service room at left- (west)
end. Axial hall stack backing onto passage and projecting gable-end stack to inner
room. Rear block at right angles to rear of inner room. 2 storeys. Irregularly
disposed 6 window front of circa 1983 PVC windows with glazing bars. Passage door
left of centre. Gable-end roof. The lower section of the hall chimney shaft is
plastered but appears to be the original stone shaft. Left (west) end wall was
partly rebuilt in C20. On rear elevation C17 oak 3-light window with chamfered
mullions over C19 passage door. Rear block includes converted cider house with
external stone steps to former apple store.
Interior is superficially result of late C19 and C20 modernisations. Beams are
boxed in and the fireplaces are blocked. Many early features undoubtedly survive
behind plasterwork. However, the through-passage is cobbled and service room has an
exposed early-mid C17 chamfered cross beam with keeled lozenge stops. Roof not
inspected.
