5/28 Church Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse built in 2 or 3 stages from mid C16 to early C17. 3-cell lobby-
entrance plan, the parlour cell being of cross-wing form. 2 storeys (the
parlour cell with attic). Timber-framed and plastered. Concrete tiled roof
with axial C17 chimney of red brick (recapped in C19), and another C19 chimney
to right. Mid C20 lean-to entrance porch with C20 boarded and battened door.
The service cell at the east end was adapted in C17 from a C16 hall; evidence
for a diamond-mullioned window, but greatly altered otherwise in C17 and
later. The later hall has a 1st floor structure of late C16 type: jewelled
chamfer stops to the binding beam, which is seated upon roll-moulded jowls;
good chamfered joists. Good-quality early C17 parlour wing in 3 bays: very
closely spaced studwork with blocked ovolo-moulded windows. A main beam has
sunk ogee mouldings. In the rear bay is a good newel staircase with
balustrading at the head. 2-tier butt-purlin roof. Wide arched fireplace in
hall, backing onto a smaller one in the parlour. The main range was
heightened and reroofed in C17.
