2/89 Dairy Farmhouse


Former farmhouse, converted to 2 cottages in C19, now one house.
Late C16 and C17, with C19 front. Timber-framed, with the northern
half rendered, and the southern half faced in mid C19 red brick.
Double Roman tiles: internal chimney-stack with a plain shaft. one

a slight overhang along the front of the rendered section which
marks the line of the older wall-plate. This end has small-paned
C20 windows and a reproduction door: the southern end has 2 small-
paned sash windows with arched heads to the brick surrounds,
and a doorway between: C19 3-light small-paned casements to upper
storey. The interior has 4 rooms in a row, divided by the chimney-
stack: to the north of the stack the framing is of good quality,
with arched braces to the tie-beams of the trusses and arched
braces halved against the studs at the corners. The original late
C16 house was probably here, with a 2-cell end chimney plan and a
single large upper room. In the southern C17 end, one ground floor
ceiling has very heavy plain joists and main beams with 3" chamfer,
but this does not accord with the rest of the building and seems to
come from elsewhere. The remainder of the frame is of poorer quality.
Clasped purlin roofs throughout, the northern half of better quality.
The house is under restoration, and a number of reused timbers have
been introduced. reused timbers have
