3/56 Malting Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Mid C16 with C15 core. 3-cell cross-passage entrance plan. 1
storey and attics. Timber-framed and rough-cast. Plaintiled roof with gabled
casement dormers and axial C16 chimney of red brick, recapped in C19. Mainly
C20 casements. Entrance doorway of c.1800, with eared architrave and moulded
pediment; C20 glazed 2-panelled door. A C15 2-bay open hall stands adjacent
to the road; its central open truss was removed in C17 when a 1st floor was
inserted in the 'upper' bay. Smoke-blackened roof, of coupled-rafter type with
side-purlins inserted later. In the 'lower' bay a large chimney was inserted
in C16; at that time a new hall was built beyond it with a cross-passage, a
chamber above, and a service cell beyond. It also has a coupled-rafter roof.
The C15 and C16 framing is plain and substantial. 2 small timber-framed wings
were added to rear in C17. The C16 service cell was converted to a parlour in
c.1800, with a fireplace and moulded arched corner cupboard.
