4/186 Old Parsonage Farmhouse
- II

Former rectory, converted to farmhouse , and now in 2 occupations. Early C17, the
front range entirely remodelled in mid to late C18, converted to farmhouse in mid
C19, with late C19 extension at right end. Painted rendered stone rubble and cob.
Slate roof with crested ridge tiles and gable ends. Rendered stack to rear of left-
hand principal room enclosed by outshut, brick and stone rubble stack to right end
of main range and rendered lateral stack to outer face of rear wing.
Main range comprises principal room each side of entrance stairhall with 2-storey
service wing to rear of right-hand room and integral 2-storey outshut to rear of
left-hand room and butting onto the rear service wing. 2-storey late C19 service
extension to right end of main range. The C18 remodelling has obscured the C17 plan
but possibly conformed to the present 3 room L-shaped plan, the interior largely
remodelled and roof substantially raised in late C18.
2 storeys. 4-window range. Original C18 fenestration completely intact with three
12-paned hornless sashes and semi-circular arched sash window with intersecting
glazing bars over shallow porch, pedimented with fluted pilasters, pulvinated frieze
and 6-panelled door, the upper 2 panels glazed. West of England fire insurance
plaque in pediment. Tripartite sash to left, 16 panes with 8-paned sliding
sidelight sashes, and 12-paned sash to right. All windows have flush sash boxes.
Rear service wing has a canted C19 oriel window with 16-paned sash flanked by 8-
paned sashes with additional 8-paned sashes to the sides. Below is a timber mullion
window of 2 lights with 15 panes to left, 6 panes to right.
Interior. Very unspoilt, mostly C18 interior but retaining some C17 fabric. Plank
and muntin screen to right of passage raised on a stone rubble plinth with chamfered
muntins with diagonal stops near the base. Raised and fielded 5 panelled door into
right-hand principal room, which has panelled shutters and doors to integral
cupbards, a reset section of C17 panelling of 6 panels with lozenge decoration on
the passage side and C17 plank door with cover strips to rear service range. C18
winder staircase to rear of passage with slender turned balusters and moulded
handrail. Principal bedrooms all retain their raised and fielded 2 panelled doors.
Left-hand principal room not inspected but believed to retain moulded plaster
cornice. Roof raised in C18 and some of the trusses replaced in C19, but one,
probably C17 truss survives enclosed in the partition wall to the lower side of the
passage formerly with threaded purlins and retaining a mud and stud infilling. No
sign of smoke-blackening. The apex of the truss aligns with that of the truss to
the rear service range, indicating the much lower former roof line of the main
