7/194 Broadridge Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Late C16-early C17, possibly earlier core with some late C17
alterations; modernized circa 1970. Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble
stacks with plastered brick chimney stacks; slate roof (formerly thatch).
Originally a 3-room-and-through-passage house facing south with service room at
right (east) end. Fourth room added to inner room at left (west) end. Rear
passage now blocked by C20 store room. Disused end stack and C19 rear lateral
stack projecting to rear of inner room and lateral stack with oven projection
projecting to front of hall. 2 storeys. Irregular 5-window main front of late C19
and C20 casements with glazing bars. C20 replacement door immediately right of
centre to passage and glazed C20 French windows to left end of main block to former
inner room. Extension has renewed monopitch slate roof leaning against main block
and contains an early C17 oak segmental-headed doorway.
Good interior. Most exposed internal features are late C16-early C17. C20 door
now to passage. Cob crosswall to right (lower end) and remains of oak plank-and-
muntin screen to hall, the muntins chamfered with keeled step stops both sides and
including a now-blocked flat-arched doorway. Passage is now blocked by a reused
section of late C16-early C17 plank-and-muntin screen. Wall to rear of passage has
slight alcove and is remembered as site of original stair which was removed within
living memory. Upper end of hall also has probably C16 oak plank-and-muntin screen
with chamfered and step-stopped muntins and evidence for original doorway at rear.
Cross beam is late C16-early C17, chamfered with keeled step stops and C17 rubble
fireplace, its oak lintel soffit-chamfered with scroll stops. Inner room has C17
axial crossbeam with scroll stops. Late C17 chamfered door frame (now blocked)
from inner room to extension. Late C17 extension has remains of original rubble
fireplace and winder stair and has axial beam, chamfered with runout stops. Its
roof has been replaced. On first floor C17 hall-inner room chambers partition is
exposed and comprises a relatively crudely infilled roof truss intended for cob
infill and lath-and-plaster cladding. It includes a crank-headed doorway. Late
C17 doorway from inner room to extension is oak with bead-moulded surround and
contains a plank door hanging on HL hinges. C17 side-pegged jointed cruck truss
over hall unusual in having no collar. Service end reduced in length circa 1970
and end wall rebuilt in breeze blocks. Roof here circa 1970 too.
