5/153 Corndon Ford Farmhouse (formerly
listed as Corndon Ford Farmhouse
23.8.55 and attached barn)
Longhouse. C16 or C17, or possibly earlier, with added porch of 1718; added lean-
tos at rear and at left-hand end. Granite rubble, the house part (excluding the
porch) covered with roughcast; lean-to at left-hand end is of concrete block.
Slated roofs, the shippon roof at a slightly lower level than the rest. Large
granite ashlar chimneystack with thatch weatherings and shaped tapered top on ridge
at right-hand end of house part. A large rendered stack on left-hand gable. House
part probably has a 2-room plan with hall stack backing on to cross-passage. The
latter is structurally within the shippon part, but there now appears to be a small
room between it and the shippon, which is sealed off by a solid stone wall without
doors at ground-storey level. 2 storeys. House part is 2 windows wide, with a
further window in the porch. All windows have C19 wood casements, with 2 or 3 panes
per light. Porch has moulded, round-arched doorway of granite with initials RW and
date 1718 carved in the spandrels; old plank door with wrought-iron strap-hinges.
5 pigeon-holes in right-hand wall. Shippon has doorway with plain granite lintel at
left-hand end; to left of it a small window with similar lintel. To right of
doorway are 2 original slit windows. The right-hand gable, fronting road, has 3
further slits in ground storey and a fourth centrally placed in the upper storey; at
base of wall is a well-made opening to the shippon drain. Rear wall of shippon has
a single slit window.
Interior not inspected; upper-floor beams of shippon have been replaced in C20.
The house and barn opposite, which is separately listed, form a good group.
