Stony Hills Farm


Farmhouse. Mid-C17 and C20. Timber-framed and weatherboarded,
peg-tiled roof. T-plan. Central range E-W, C17; C20
cross-wing, N-S at W end, brick, pebble dash rendered. At E
end C20 pebble dash rendered brick single storey unit (neither
C20 addition included in this listing).
2 storey and attic. C17 range: N front elevation, 3 bays with
central stack and door. All 5 windows C20 2-light casement
with glazing bars, 4x3 panes, door boarded with single light
and simple projecting gabled pediment with shaped barge
boards, weatherboarding all C20 renewal. Visible stack of
C18/C19 brickwork. Rear S elevation, weatherboarded, 2 window
range, all 4 windows similar to those on front elevation.
Central dormer window with 2-light casement window similar to
those in N and S elevations. To W, simple skylight in roof
pitch. E end elevation, mainly obscured by C20 addition but
2-light casement window similar to rest of house in attic
INTERIOR: has framing of a C17 house of 2 cells plus central
chimney. Axial joists on ground and first floor with lamb's
tongue stopped chamfers. Common joists are deep sectioned with
diminished haunched tenons, pendant soffits. Both wallplates
jointed in chimney bay with face halved and bladed scarfs. As
central stack does not occupy full axial span of chimney bay
and subsidiary framing is present, the existence of a former
timber chimney is possible. Fireplaces re-built or blocked but
one on ground floor to W room has correct general form (small
4-centred arched head and curved fireback) to indicate the
parlour end, backing fireplace on E side is large and correct
shape for general use (still the kitchen/living room).
Cupboard doors each side have simple butterfly hinges. In
attic, roof of joggled butt side purlin form, collars set high
to allow occupation, wind-braces evident at NE end. Stair at
rear of stack to attic, rebuilt in lower part. Within the
attic, 4 C17 diagonally set chimney shafts set on base with
corbel cornice - not seen from outside, plain shaft attached
on W side. External later stack appears to lie over diagonal
shafts. The presence of shafts and base within the building
suggests heightening of house from one and a half storeys to 2
with attics, although no evidence of this is visible in the
exposed internal framing.
