Hedgeland Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Circa mid/late C17 with C20 renovations. Cob on stone rubble footings,
colourwashed and rendered to the front elevation, unrendered to the rear ; corrugated
asbestos roof, half-hipped at ends (formerly thatched); projecting rear lateral stone
rubble stack with truncated brick shaft, axial stack.
Plan: 3 room and through passage plan which may have been a 4 room and through
passage plan in the C17. At present there are 2 rooms to the left of the passage,
one heated by the rear lateral stack (probably formerly the kitchen) and a narrow
unheated dairy at the left end. The room to the right of the passage has a stack
backing on to the passage and was probably the C17 hall.
There is some evidence for a former (inner) room at the right end.
The dairy has been integrated into the house.
There is a cob and stone lean-to at the rear in the centre and a probably C19 brick
service room to the rear left.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front with C20 casements and a C20 gabled porch
into the passage. The front door has a moulded frame.
Interior: Plank and muntin screen between the passage and the lower end room, the
screen more finely finished on the passage side. The lower end room (to the left)
has a chamfered stopped cross beam. The C20 grate probably disguises early features.
The hall stack also has a C20 grate but the earlier lintel is visible on the return
of the jamb.
Roof Pegged x apex trusses of a probably C18 date.
A C17 house with some original features and others likely to be concealed behind
modern plaster.
