20.2.67 west end
Farmhouse with barn and outbuildings attached. Farmhouse late C17, barn probably

continuous over attached barn, gable end to right, hipped at left end. Brick stacks
to right gable end and to left (former gable) end of farmhouse, and tall brick shaft
to rear outshut. Gable ended slate roof to attached outbuildings.
Farmhouse has 2-room and cross-passage plan, the passage containing C19 straight-run
staircase, with smaller parlour to left and large kitchen to right. Dairy wing
added probably in C18 to rear creating L-shaped plan, with slated outshut in the
angle. Barn attached at left end set at right angles to farmhouse, the roof
continuous, but upper left side of barn has been partially demolished. Outbuildings
with cob courtyard walls with pantile capping extend forward at the right end of the
barn to front of farmhouse.
2 storeys. 4-window range. C19/early C20 fenestration. 3-light casement at left
end, otherwise 2 lights, all 2 panes per light. Ground floor has a 3-light casement
6 panes per light to each side of plank door, the upper 2 panels glazed. Barn has
double plank doors to cart entrance.
Interibr. Largely remodelled in C19, all 4-panelled doors surviving and C19
staircase. Kitchen fireplace at right end has late C17 ovolo moulded timber lintel
with incised X, bar and scroll stops. Recess to left may have originally been a
smoking chamber, later converted to creamery.
Roof trusses are wide span straight principals with pegged lapped collars. Some,
almost certainly reused, smoke-blackened rafters at intervals suggest a complete
rebuilding in the late C17 of a former medieval farmhouse.
