4/153 Batt's Farmhouse
- II
Detached house, formerly a farmhouse. Probably late C15, much altered, especially
in the late C16 and C17. Roughcast cob on stone footings; gable end asbestos tiled
Formerly a 3-room, through-passage plan house, the service end to the right of the
passage. The smoke-blackened medieval roof survives over the hall, and it is clear
that the whole house was originally open to the roof. The inner room (with end
stack) was possibly the first part of the house to receive a first floor. Hall
heated by internal rear lateral stack with brick shaft; service end floored and the
end stack inserted in the C17. A newel post to the rear of the hall marks the
position of the C17 stairs. 2 storeys.
Exterior. Front: 4-window range. First floor with C19 3 and 4-light casement
windows. 5 ground floor 2, 3 and 4-light casement windows, some of them C19, with 2
doors under tiled canopies.
Rear: 5 first floor windows to first floor; one 3-light early C19 pegged casement
window to ground floor. Pantiled leanto.
Interior: inner room with 1 full and 2 half-axial ceiling beams, chamfered with
roll stops. Fireplace with timber lintel and jambs with continuous chamfer. The
through-passage has been removed and this creates a large room on the site of the
original hall, with cross ceiling beams, chamfered with hollow step stops. Service
end with 3 axial ceiling beams, all unchamfered, that to the centre resting on a
chamfered post. Fireplace (with evidence of a bake oven) now blocked.
Roof: 2 jointed crucks over the hall, both side pegged. The apex carpentry is
different on each, that to the service end with a saddle, that to the higher end
with a yoke and a cranked collar, but both carrying the same diagonal ridge piece.
Service end with 2 much later trusses, halved, crossed and pegged at apex.
