SP 964 Camp Farm


Farmhouse with attached barn, now house. Late C16 or early C17 with substantial
modification in C19 and C20. Former barn and outbuilding section is coursed
rubble with concrete tile roof; small farmhouse section is pebble-dash on
brickwork facing up timber framework plain tile roof. The early plan is not now
discernible, but seems to have been through passage with part of the parlour
range probably demolished; this all at the left hand end (East) with a large
barn, now completely modified and converted to dwelling, plus small end section
to right on two floors with external steps to loft entry in gable. The
building, which has part basement under the former barn unit, lies high on a
bank, and is entered on the upper side, away from the modern road (A4151).

From road: left, pebble-dashed end has two 2-light C20 eaves dormers over 2 and
3-light casements; rubble, barn section has 2-light hipped dormer over 3-light
casement and opening to small cellar area with steel floor joists; large eaves
stack above a lofty 2-light, a single light, 3-light dormer over 3-light, a
raking buttress, and a 2-light. Also two flush roof lights; all these barn
units late C20. Left return has 2-light above 2-light C20 casements, right
return a plank loft door at head of stone steps. Entrance front: the former
barn section has a variety of C20 casements; dormers and roof lights, including
a recessed balcony and a projecting flat-roofed section with porch. Rendered
house unit to right has 2-light steel in brickwork, a plank door, and a 2-ligtz
over 2-light steel casement, right. Small brick gable stack.

Interior: The two storey unit at the west end has timber floor and roof
probably of C18; the large central unit, formerly the barn, retains some of the
roof pricipals but is otherwise of late C20 construction. The small pebble
dashed unit retains parts of two pairs of full crucks; the south wall is mainly
square panel framing faced externally with brick, north wall similar, with some
close-spaced heavy studs. Series of deep chamfered transverse beams to ground
floor ceiling, a large open fire with chamfered wood bressumer at the barn end,
this probably the old service end of house. C19 or early C20 wood staircase;
original stair position not known, but east gable wall completely re-built, and
building assumed to have extended further in that direction. Some internal
framed partitions, and many remains of wattle and daub panelling, including one
at upper floor with exposed woven wattle now without fill. Outer walls also
show some wattle and daub.

A very much modified building but still containing substantial remains of good
early timber structure.
