2/13 Hatton's Farmhouse

- II*

Former farmhouse. Late C15. 2 storeys: basic 3-cell plan with central open
hall. Timber-framed; colour-washed brick front, rendered sides and rear. C20
single Roman tiles. An internal chimney-stack and an end stack, both with
plain red brick shafts. 3-light old casement windows with pintle hinges, 3
to upper floor, 4 to ground floor, all in deep reveals. Plank door under a
cast iron open porch roof. The upper part of the partition at the lower end
of the hall remains, with close-studding above a beam with a single row of
embattled ornament: in the soffit of this beam housings for the 2 service
doorways. The 2-bay hall had an open truss with a marked camber to the tie-
beam, supported by deep, plank-like arched braces. Ogee-moulding to the tie-
beam, cavetto mould to the braces. Crown-post roof, the post: moulded at cap
and base and braced in 4 ways at the head. The ceiling over the hall,
inserted in the mid C16, is very high, with multiple roll-mouldings on the
heavy cross-beams and around the cornice. At the lower end, the slots and
mortices in the soffit of a main beam indicate that a high screen was inserted
at the same time as the ceiling, creating a complete cross-passage entry into
the house. Part of this screen, with roll-moulding surrounding long recessed
panels, is resited on the upper floor. The internal chimney-stack was
inserted between the hall and the parlour, and just within the upper bay of
the hall. A large open fireplace with plain lintel on the parlour side, and a
plain main beam, mutilated. Close studding and arched braces at a steep angle
all visible on the upper floor.
