SX 19 SE
3/118 St Tinney Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Probably C16 with C17 rear wing and alterations; extended and altered
again in the late C19, and with minor C20 alterations. Colourwashed stone rubble;
gable end of rear wing is slate hung. Bitumenised scantle slate roof with gabled
ends; and some old crested clay ridge tiles over the main range. Gable end chimney
stacks with C19 red brick shafts and projecting rear lateral stack with rendered and
slate hung shaft. Corrugated iron roof over lean-to at left end.
Probably originally a 3 room and through passage plan, the lower end to the left
demolished; the hall is heated from a rear lateral stack with an oven. In the C17 a
relatively large unheated single room plan wing was added at right angles behind the
passage. There was probably originally an inner room at the higher right end but
this was demolished and rebuilt and extended in the late C19 to create a stairhall
and a parlour which is heated from a gable end stack. At about the same time the
passage front doorway was blocked and the passage partition moved to the right
further into the hall to allow room for a small pantry at the front and a second
staircase at the back. This staircase and pantry may have been put in before the
late C19 main staircase and parlour because the house is rather small to have 2
staircases. The C19 stack at the lower gable end only heated the chamber above. The
single storey lean-to at the lower end is probably also C19. In the C20 the first
floor in the rear wing was removed and the room is now open to the the roof.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window range. Ground floor 3 late C19 sashes with
vertical glazing bars and horns, in brick arch openings, the left hand window has a
wooden lintel. First floor 4 C19 slate hung gabled half-dormers, 2 to right with
late C19 sashes with vertical glazing bars, 2 to left have C20 casements. Original
granite door frame to left with chamfered segmented head and jambs with stops, now
blocked and with small late C19 4-pane sash. Late C19 doorway to right has late C19
5-panel door, top panel glazed, in segmented brick arch opening.
Back elevation has 2 C19 2-light casements with 6 panes per light, and projecting
rear lateral stack with semi-circular oven with slate roof in the angle with the rear
wing to left which has a large C20 window in the gable end wall and a small chamfered
granite 2-light ground floor window on the right (lower) side with an iron stanchion
bar to the left hand light. The single storey lean-to at the lower end has a
straight masonry joint between it and the main range.
Interior : the large rear lateral hall fireplace has monolithic granite jambs and
lintel with a continous hollow chamfer, the jambs have straight cut stops; the
fireplace has a pitched slate hearth and a cloam oven to the left at the back,
stamped with the name FISHLEY. The pantry has joists with bead moulding; these
joists would have been over the original passage. The second staircase is straight
and partitioned off at the back of the former passage. The late C19 main staircase
at the higher end is also straight and has turned balusters and turned newels. The
hall and the lower end (former passage) have slate floors.
Roof : roughly hewn straight principals lapped and crossed at the apex and with
collars lapped and pegged to the faces of the principals; diagonal ridge-piece, and
the purlins set on the backs of the principals. C19 or C20 bolted soft-wood trusses
over the higher right hand end. There is no access to the roof over the rear wing
but the feet of the probably original principals are straight.
