- Cobley Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C16 core, much altered during C17, C18 and C19 refurbishments.
Plastered cob on rubble footings; rubble stacks with C19 brick chimney shafts. C19
slate roof (formerly thatch). Originally a 3-room-and-through-passage-plan house
facing south-east with former inner room at right (north-eastern) end. End stacks
to former inner and service rooms and rear lateral stack projecting to rear of hall.
Outshot to rear of hall and inner room includes truncated and disused newel stair
well. C19 stair now blocks rear end of passage. 2 storeys. 5-window front
comprising small C19 16-pane sashes in 2 right side windows and late C19-early C20
casements with glazing bars to left (service end). Gable-ended roof. Hall stack
has diagonal chimney shaft.
Interior shows mainly features from C18 and C19 refurbishments; there are plain
chamfered crossbeams in all ground floor rooms, hall and inner room have rubble
fireplaces with plain-finished oak lintels, and service room has C19 brick fireplace
with a reused C16 chamfered and pyramid stopped floor beam as the lintel. C17 roof
over hall carried on uncollared trusses with threaded purlins and C19 roof trusses
over service and inner rooms - the latter made up from reused medieval sooted
timbers. Some C16 or C17 features may survive behind later plaster.
